Is mammary fibroids likely to progress to breast cancer?

According to the study, more than 50% of women will develop mammary fibroids at some point in their life, with patients with mammary fibroids having symptoms but also in cases without any symptoms and making the diagnosis of breast cancer more difficult.

1. Mammary fibroids and the risk of progressing to cancer?

Mammary fibroids are tumors that develop from connective tissue between the urinary cells, which have a sheath, which can be encountered on one or two sides of the breast, usually occurring before the age of 35. The tumor is firm, even, round or ovate, mobile under the skin, painless, not related to the menstrual cycle; the size varies by about 2-3cm. Usually there is only one u, sometimes there are many tumours and appear next time.

Mammary fibroids are benign forms of lesions but can be unpleasant for some women. According to the American Cancer Society, developing mammary fibroids does not increase a patient's risk of developing breast cancer. There is no known link between the two pathology. However, mammary fibroids can make it difficult to distinguish between a new breast tumor and changes in fibroids. This condition makes it more difficult to diagnose images in breast cancer screening through breast examination or mammograms.

2. Causes of formation of mammary fibroids

The specific cause of mammary fibroids has not yet been determined. However, some studies claim that changes in the end hormone estrogen and testosterone may be the cause of this condition.

Just like benign mammary gland diseases,benign mammary fibroid symptoms will likely disappear after menopause due to a decrease in the production of these hormones and stable levels of hormones in the blood.
