Fibrocystic breasts : Fibrocystic breast disease is characterized by lumpiness and usually discomfort in both breasts. The lumpiness is due to small breast masses or breast cysts. The condition is very common and is benign. These lumps/ cysts are often periodically affected by the hormonal changes of the menstrual cycle.
