With this condition, cells that look like cancer cells are growing in the lobules (milk-producing glands of the breast). LCIS is not a form of cancer, and it usually doesn’t spread, even if untreated. However, women with LCIS do have a greater chance of getting invasive breast cancer.
Simple cysts are fluid-filled sacs. They may be small or large and grow in one or both breasts.
Fibroadenomas are benign tumors made of connective tissue or extra milk-producing glands. They feel firm and rubbery and move easily when touched.
These are noticeable breast changes that may happen monthly. Symptoms include tenderness, swelling and lumps. Lumps may grow the week before your period, then shrink a week later.
Hyperplasia happens when your body makes too much of a certain kind of cell. These cells line the inside of the milk glands and ducts in the breast. Subtypes include ductal, lobular and atypical hyperplasia. Women with atypical hyperplasia have a higher risk of breast cancer.
Mastitis is an infection caused by bacteria that enter the breast through the nipple. It is common among breastfeeding women.
