Fibrocystic Breast Disease
Screening and Tests for Fibrocysic Breast Disease
Doctors at Florida Hospital may recommend different screening and tests for fibrocystic breast disease depending on the patient’s age, condition and needs. Most diagnostic procedures begin with a physical exam, including a breast exam.
Many times, doctors can diagnose fibrocystic breast disease with just a breast exam. For women over 40, doctors at Florida Hospital may recommend mammography or a routine of screenings to diagnose the condition. In some cases, breast ultrasound may be performed to learn more about the condition.
If other conditions are suspected, doctors may perform a breast biopsy to test the cells.
