Tubular adenomas are a rare breast entity constituting 0.3-1.7% of all benign tumours first described in 1968 typically affecting women in their reproductive ages (15-49 years). Few cases have been reported in the literature. They are rarely found before menarche or after menopause. Preoperatively, tubular adenomas are difficult to differentiate from fibroadenoma, phyllodes and tubular carcinoma. We report the case of a 25-year-old female who reported to our clinic with 4-month history of painless left breast mass which had not seen any significant changes in size. Histological findings were consistent with tubular adenoma.
