Breast Health Conditions 

While more than 300,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed this year according to the American Cancer Society, there are also many other breast health concerns. The staff at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas Breast Imaging Centers wants to help you understand your breast health.

  • Breast calcifications – calcium deposits found within breast tissue.
  • Breast cysts - fluid-filled sacs within the breast formed when normal milk glands enlarge.
  • Breast lumps and lumpy breasts – the palpable texture of the breast in many women due to prominent normal milk glands, ducts and the fibrous tissue that surrounds these structures.
  • Breast nipple discharge - While a milky nipple discharge is rare in men and in women who have never been pregnant, it does occur.
  • Breast pain - Benign breast pain can affect as many as 50 to 70 percent of women in the U.S. and premenstrual breast pain, also called a fibrocystic condition, is not associated with an increased risk of breast cancer.
