Fibrocystic changes are the development of fibrous and fluid filled areas in the breast tissue. These are mostly considered benign. They are generated during the changes in the hormonal levels and the sensitivities of the breast tissues.

Have you noticed any abnormal features on breast self examination like a breast lump, nipple discharge or skin changes?

What is your age?

You would need to carry out regular breast self examinations and periodic clinical examinations and repeat investigations annually.

Let us know if you have any other doubts and post us about what your doctor advises.
