Fibrocystic breast disease

Fibrocystic breast disease is the most common benign breast disorder, affecting around 30 per cent of premenopausal women. It is most common in women aged from 30 to 50. Symptoms are tender breasts containing lumps and benign cysts. These may be mildly uncomfortable to severely painful. Fibrocystic breast disease usually affects both breasts and worsens premenstrually. It may be associated with an increased risk of breast cancer.

Fibrocystic breast diseaseCauses of fibrocystic breast disease

Fibrocystic breast disease may be due to imbalances in female sex hormones, specifically an increase in the estrogen to progesterone ratio. Prolactin, the milk release hormone secreted by the pituitary gland, may also play a role. Oral contraceptives relieve the symptoms of fibrocystic breast disease in most women, and diuretic drugs may also be effective.
