Benign Breast Disease

The initial patient presentation is generally with a complaint of breast pain (mas-talgia) or breast lump.


Rarely does breast pain represent cancer; however a thorough breast exam and evaluation should be performed. Breast pain is characterized as cyclical or noncyclical with treatment as determined by the type of pain present. Cyclic pain is probably hormonal in nature, since it can be associated with elevated prolactin levels and relieved with menopause. Noncyclic mastalgia affects older women and the origin of the pain should be discriminated as chest wall or breast pain.
