Hi,
ADH stands for Atypical  Ductal hyperplasia  which is a precancerous condition that affects cells in the breast.
ADH isn't cancer, but it can be a forerunner to the development of breast cancer.
If the Atypical Hyperplasia cells keep dividing and become more abnormal, the condition may be reclassified as DCIS ( Ductal Carcinoma in Situ) which is a noninvasive breast cancer.
Best wishes...
