fibrocystic changes

[fie-bro-SIS-tick] a term that describes certain changes in the breast that are not cancer and are thought to be caused by fibrosis and/or cysts (fluid-filled sacs). Symptoms of this condition are breast lumps, swelling, or pain, sometimes along with nipple discharge. Because these symptoms or other signs can sometimes look like breast cancer, a mammogram or a biopsy of breast tissue may be needed to show that there is no cancer. See also biopsy, mammogram.
