Breast Problems: Common Problems in Adults (non-pregnant)

Term: 2007
Published: October 3, 2012
Revised: November 3, 2014

Little scientific information is available on evaluation and management of women who present to their primary care physicians with breast problems.  While most disorders are benign, the possibility of breast cancer is always a concern.  This CME activity helps clinicians improve their knowledge and clinical strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of four common breast problems:

  1.     Palpable mass
  2.     Breast pain with a negative exam
  3.     Nipple discharge without abnormal findings
  4.     Assessment and management of women at high risk for breast cancer.
