Lump on the chest

Patient

Q: I'm male. 20 yrs. I have been working out 6 days a week for the past 4 months. For the first two months I had used whey and casein protein powders along with fish oil softgels. But somewhere between the 2nd and 3rd month after i started working out a small lump appeared in my left chest . I went to the doctor and checked out and took a biopsy which showed "few groups of benign ductal epithelial cells and scattered myoepithelial cells" forming the impression of "fibroadenoma". The lump is painless unless i press hard . But i found out that this lump is slowly over the course of a month and half growing in my left chest . the growth is negligible although noticeable overtime. Now a small lump has appeared on my right chest which feels just about the same. I still workout pretty hard in the gym without any stress or pain but the problem is when I sprint I feel the lumps and get very agitated and hence become unable to run to my limits. I would like to remove the lumps(big one in my left breast and small one in my right breast) completely. I would like to know what are my options.Now my neighbour happened to be an expert oncologist, so I did get a physical consultation with him and he mentioned "liposuction" to remove the lumps . I would like to know more about it . I'm sorry if I have been long in my explanation but I didn't want to miss anything . Thank you .
