Conditions We Treat

We diagnose and treat a variety of benign (non-cancerous), high-risk, and cancerous breast conditions.

Benign conditions include:

  • Breast cysts and calcifications
  • Nipple discharge
  • Breast abscess: Swollen, tender mass filled with infected fluid in the breast
  • Fibroadenoma: Benign tumor of the breast
  • Intraductal papilloma: Small lump inside the milk ducts of the breast
  • Phyllodes tumor: Rare, mostly benign, tumors that arise from the connective tissue of the breast
  • Fibromatosis (desmoid tumor): A rare, benign tumor arising from the stroma (connective tissue) of the breast

High-risk conditions are not cancerous but may increase your risk of developing breast cancer. Treatment may be recommended to make sure they do not progress into cancer.  High-risk breast conditions include:

  • Sclerosing Adenosis: Benign breast lesion involving increased distorted lobules accompanied by stromal fibrosis
  • Flat epithelial atypia: Abnormal cells within the milk ducts
  • Radial scar or complex sclerosing lesion: Changes in the breast that look like a scar but may mask another condition
  • Atypical ductal hyperplasia: Abnormal cells in the milk ducts of the breast
  • Atypical lobular hyperplasia: Abnormal cells in the breast lobules
  • Lobular carcinoma in situ: Abnormal cells in the breast lobules; lesion at high-risk for development of cancer in both breasts

Breast Cancer

  • Malignant phyllodes tumor
  • Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the breast
  • Angiosarcoma of the breast
  • Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS): Non-invasive, Stage 0 breast cancer
