  An otherwise healthy 27-year-old woman comes to the physician 2 weeks after noticing a tender mass in her left breast during breast self-examination. She has a history of similar smaller masses that resolved spontaneously within a few weeks. She feels well and takes no medications. Menses occur at regular 28-day intervals. Her last menstrual period was 3 and half weeks ago. Vital signs are within normal limits. There is no lymphadenopathy. The breasts are symmetric and there are no skin changes. Examination of the left breast shows several 1-cm, smooth, soft, mobile masses and a 3-cm mobile, soft, tender mass in the upper outer quadrant. Examination of the right breast shows tenderness to deep palpation and small masses similar to the left breast. Which of the following is the most likely diagnosis?

A. Abscess
B. Fat necrosis
C. Fibroadenoma
D. Fibrocystic changes of the breast
E. Galactocele
F. Intraductal papilloma
G. Lipoma
H. Mammary ductal ectasia

Why is this not C?
The reason I didn't pick D is cuz they didn't mention blue domed cyst and shes not more than 35yo ...
Fibroadenoma is the one which is small well defined mobile mass.
