Breast Conditions

During the typical woman’s lifetime, she is likely to experience a number of benign (non-cancerous) breast conditions. These include changes that occur during the menstrual cycle and other changes that are not related to a woman's menstrual cycle. Many women experience some symptoms such as breast pain, lumps or nipple discharge by the time they reach menopause.

According to the American Cancer Society, when breast tissue is examined under a microscope, most women have some type of breast abnormality. These benign breast conditions may cause pain or discomfort, but depending on the condition, treatment may or may not be necessary. Approximately 80 percent of all breast symptoms turn out to be benign.
