There are various types of benign breast conditions. It is important to conduct breast self exams (BSE) and have your clinical breast exam (CBE) completed by your health care provider to help in identifying any breast changes. It is recommended to notify your health care provider if you notice a change in your breast.
Some of the benign breast conditions include fibroadenomas and lipomas. These are common benign breast lumps. Benign breast conditions such as breast abscess, breast cellulitis, and mastitis are all types of inflammation or infection that require medical treatment by a healthcare provider. Breast cysts and galactocele are both types of conditions in which fluid accumulates and may be aspirated or drained by a health care provider.
