Specialization in Noncancerous Breast Conditions
Several breast conditions may turn out to be benign. These include:
- Breast calcifications
- Phylloides tumor
- Fibrocystic breast disease
- Intraductal papilloma
- Mammary fat necrosis
High Risk Breast Conditions
- Atypical ductal hyperplasia
- Atypical lobular hyperplasa
- Lobular carcinoma in situ
- Flat epithelial atypia
Breast cancer, which can affect both men and women, is the most serious breast disease. This condition involves the abnormal growth of cells in the breast tissue, which usually occurs in the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that produce milk). Like most conditions, early detection is a key component to the successful treatment of breast cancer.
