Not all breast abnormalities are breast cancer. Benign breast disorders may arise as a result of the cyclical hormonal fluctuations that occur in every woman before menopause or during the menstrual cycle. These disorders are in fact, part of a spectrum that extends from a normal state to overt benign disease.
