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.
