Introduction

Fibrocystic disease of the breast, also known as fibrocystic breast changes, is a common condition characterized by the development of noncancerous lumps, cysts, and fibrous tissue in the breast. It is a benign condition that affects many women and is not associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. The aim of this guide is to provide healthcare professionals with a comprehensive overview of the diagnosis and management of fibrocystic disease breast.

Codes

– ICPC-2 Code: X88 Fibrocystic disease breast
– ICD-10 Code: N60.1 Diffuse cystic mastopathy

Symptoms

  • Breast pain: Many women with fibrocystic breast changes experience breast pain or discomfort, which may be cyclical and worsen before menstruation.
  • Breast lumps: Fibrocystic breast changes can cause the development of multiple lumps or cysts in the breast tissue. These lumps are usually movable and may change in size and tenderness throughout the menstrual cycle.

Causes

The exact cause of fibrocystic breast changes is unknown, but hormonal fluctuations during the menstrual cycle are believed to play a role. Other factors that may contribute to the development of fibrocystic breast changes include:

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Genetics
  • Age (more common in women between the ages of 20 and 50)
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Caffeine consumption

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Obtain a detailed medical history, including information about the patient’s symptoms, menstrual cycle, and any previous breast conditions or surgeries.
  • Inquire about any family history of breast cancer or other breast conditions.
  • Ask about any medications or hormonal therapies the patient is currently taking.

Physical Examination

  • Perform a thorough physical examination of the breasts, including inspection and palpation.
  • Look for any changes in breast size, shape, or skin texture.
  • Palpate the breasts to identify any lumps, cysts, or areas of tenderness.
  • Assess the axillary lymph nodes for any enlargement or tenderness.

Laboratory Tests

  • No specific laboratory tests are required for the diagnosis of fibrocystic breast changes.
  • However, if there is a suspicion of an infection or other underlying condition, a complete blood count (CBC) and breast fluid analysis may be performed.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • Mammography: Mammography is the primary imaging modality used to evaluate breast abnormalities. It can help identify any suspicious masses or calcifications.
  • Ultrasound: Ultrasound may be used in addition to mammography to further evaluate breast lumps or cysts. It can help differentiate between solid and fluid-filled masses.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): MRI may be recommended in certain cases to provide a more detailed evaluation of breast tissue.

Other Tests

  • Fine-needle aspiration (FNA): If a breast lump or cyst is identified, FNA may be performed to collect a sample of cells or fluid for further analysis. This can help determine if the lump is benign or requires further evaluation.
  • Biopsy: In some cases, a biopsy may be recommended to definitively diagnose fibrocystic breast changes or rule out other breast conditions.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor any changes in symptoms or breast abnormalities.
  • Educate the patient about breast self-examination and encourage regular self-checks.
  • Provide information about lifestyle modifications and interventions that may help alleviate symptoms.
