Do any breast conditions increase the risk of breast cancer?
Most breast conditions do not put a woman at increased risk for breast cancer. The conditions listed above are examples of this. Two conditions that may increase the risk of breast cancer are Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia (ADH) and Lobular Carcinoma in Situ (LCIS). A finding of either of these conditions should result in more frequent screenings and/or other interventions to reduce the risk of breast cancer.
