Benign diseases of the breast are common clinical conditions that affect young women. Complaints related to the breast often cause significant discomfort and mental stress. The following study will try to identify the risk factors that may be associated with symptomatic benign breast diseases. Identification of such factors may help preventing and / or treating these conditions.
Benign breast disease (BBD) is a common cause of hospital visit. In young adults, benign breast conditions surpass cancer as a cause of symptoms related to the breast. However, breast symptoms may be associated with significant distress and may impose diagnostic difficulties. Moreover, certain pathological entities of benign breast conditions are well known to increase the risk of breast cancer.
Identification of modifiable risk factors associated with symptomatic breast disorders has several potential benefits. Modification of such factors may help decrease patients' distress, hospital visits and indirectly decrease the risk of cancer.
the available data point to the possible association of several environmental factors with symptomatic BBD. Most of the available information points to an association of BBD with anthropometric features, growth pattern, family history of breast conditions and dietary consumption. Substantial evidence are however lacking and further studies are strongly required to better characterize the risk factors of the condition.
In this study, the investigators will systematically collect epidemiological, developmental and clinical data in young patients presenting with breast complaints. The association with disease incidence, pattern and histology will be examined.

A common and benign breast disease characterized by varying degree of fibrocystic changes in the breast tissue. There are three major patterns of morphological changes, including FIBROSIS, formation of CYSTS, and proliferation of glandular tissue (adenosis). The fibrocystic breast has a dense irregular, lumpy, bumpy consistency.
A rare, benign, inflammatory breast disease occurring in premenopausal women shortly after a recent pregnancy. The origin is unknown but it is commonly mistaken for malignancy and sometimes associated with BREAST FEEDING and the use of ORAL CONTRACEPTIVES.
A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.
