Physiology behind benign breast problems


These disorders are in fact part of a spectrum that extends from a normal state, to overt benign disease.  In between the two poles are disorders that should preferably be referred to as aberrations, rather than actual disease.


Because of what is stated above, the concept of aberrations of normal development and involution (“ANDI”) has permeated the medical literature over the past few years.

The reader should not be overly concerned with this.  What it basically means is that most of the conditions that result from the normal cyclical hormonal changes found in every woman, are just aberrations or slight deviations from normal.  True disease is not that common in this setting.  Symptoms of breast problems such as pain, nipple discharge or a mass should however prompt you to see your doctor.
