THE EASIEST WAY TO TREAT
Fibroadenoma is the most common form of benign breast tumors, experienced by as many as 10% of women.
Unlike cancerous tumors, a fibroadenoma moves under the skin when touched. It may be diagnosed by means of breast examination and ultrasound imaging, but if diagnosis is uncertain, the patient may also undergo a mammogram, core biopsy, and/or fine needle aspiration.
WHEN DOES A PATIENT
CRYOABLATION STANDARD OF CARE
Cryotherapy offers a minimally invasive treatment with optimal cosmetic outcomes. The ProSense™ system also enables the fibroadenoma patient to undergo in-office cryoablation treatment that is effective, painless, and faster than other procedures.
Cryoablation: “… a successful option for the resolution of fibroadenomas without surgical excision.”
“The FDA has approved the use of cryoablation as a safe and effective therapy for fibroadenomas.”
“Results of cryoablation have been followed out to 4 years and demonstrate the procedure to be safe, efficacious, and durable.”

At 12 months, the average volume of the cryoablated zone was reduced by 75%, indicating the fibroadenoma was destroyed and being reabsorbed.
