Fibroadenosis of B/L breast means the formation of lumps in both the breasts. Women with fibroadenosis complain of breast pain. It is not a disease but a condition and the causes can be many. Women reaching menopause may have cysts in their breasts, caused due to retention of fluid by the body. Severe injury or infection can also lead to the formation of lumps in the breasts. A blocked milk duct or a tumor made of fatty tissue are also lumps. None of these are cancerous.
Ages affected – women in between the age group of 25-50 years.
