type of adenosis

I recently had biopsies on both breast and was told I had adenosis.   When I look this up on the internet I see there are different kinds of adenosis.   What questions should I ask my physician to determine exactly which one I have?  And is there anything to do about adenosis once you have it?

Dear shes, Adenosis refers to a benign (non-cancerous) condition of the breast.  Some types of adenosis, such as sclerosing adenosis, may have a very small increased risk of breast cancer development.  Ask your doctor for more specifics of the pathology report, and what the recommended follow up for your individual situation.
