Breast cancer

Breast cancer is the disease that many women fear most. But early detection and lifestyle changes may reduce your risk.

Breast cysts

Breast cysts are more common in women before menopause. Draining fluid from a breast cyst can diagnose and treat the problem.

Breast pain

Breast pain is a common problem for women. But while it can be worrisome and uncomfortable, it rarely signals cancer or another serious health condition.

Fibrocystic breasts

Fibrocystic breasts feel lumpy, and they're prone to soreness before your period. They're sometimes uncomfortable, but fibrocystic breast changes are common.

Galactorrhea

Galactorrhea is a milky discharge from the nipple not associated with the normal milk production of breast-feeding.

Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia, enlarged breasts in males, is a common problem. Find out about treatments and how to cope.

Inflammatory breast cancer

Inflammatory breast cancer occurs when cancer cells clog lymphatic vessels in the skin of the breast. It's a rare but deadly form of cancer.

Invasive lobular carcinoma

Male breast cancer

For male breast cancer, awareness and early diagnosis are key to successful treatment.

Mammary duct ectasia

Mammary duct ectasia is a noncancerous breast condition in which the milk ducts beneath the nipple become wider, clogged and sometimes inflamed.

Mastitis

Mastitis can leave you feeling exhausted and run-down — hardly ideal when you're breast-feeding an infant. Discover ways to care for yourself if you have mastitis.
