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.
