Abstract

 

The great heterogeneity of benign breast diseases and the lack of established standardized criteria for their classification in our country makes it difficult to assess the potential risk of developing cancer. In the present study conducted over an one-year period (2010), 393 cases of histologically confirmed fibrocystic disease of the breast were evaluated. The internationally accepted classification of fibrocystic processes of the breast of D.Page and W. Dupont was used. According to their potential risk of subsequent development of breast cancer the patients were grouped as having:

1. Non-proliferative processes (relative risk=1.0) - 282 cases.

2. Hyperplasia (ductal and lobular) without atypia (low risk of 1.5-2 times) 98 cases.

3. Atypia hyperplasia (moderate risk of 4-5 times) - 13 cases.

The finding suggest the need of adopting an accepted classification to clearly define the different risk groups for the purpose of an adequate post-operative follow-up aiming at prevention and early detection of breast cancer.
