Giant fibroadenomas are benign masses that usually present as unilateral rapid growths in the breast during puberty. They can spread over a wide area and cause congestion and ulcerations in the breast skin. Definitive diagnosis is made by breast biopsy. Treatment options may vary from simple excision to subcutaneous mastectomy, depending on the size of the mass. Herein, we present two cases of 13- and 14-year-old female patients who were treated for giant breast fibroadenoma. In these extremely rare cases, total mass excision was performed, which preserved the breast skin.
