lactating adenoma

A small, corresponding to a hypertrophied lobule of the gland, a tumor detected in pregnant or lactating women.

This form of mastopathy occurs in pregnant and breastfeeding women. The tumor affects the lobules or groups of alveoli, causing an increase in their size, but milk continues to be secreted.

Usually, such a tumor disappears after the end of breastfeeding, but in any case, it is better to consult a specialist for a thorough examination and histological confirmation, since breast cancer is detected in 1 case in 3 thousand pregnancies.
