what is fibrocystic breasts?

Lumpy-Bumpy Breasts: Fibrocystic changes are a spectrum of pathologic findings seen on biopsy. This has morphed into a clinical term for "lumpy-bumpy" breast tissue and/or dense tissue seen on mammography. This is not a disease, just a variant of normal. This requires no treatment, just reassurance.
