BASIC ASPECTS OF PATHOGENESIS FIBROCYSTIC MASTOPATHY
Kharkiv Regional Clinical Oncology Center
The literature on the problems of the pathogenesis of fibrocystic mastopathy is reviewed. It was noted that the presence of proliferative processes in the breast tissue increased the risk of cancer development. The information accumulated in the literature shows that formation of firboadenomatous changes in the breast tissue is a hormone−dependent process. The principles of pathogenetic treatment of the patients with fibrocystic mastopathy have been worked out by many researchers. The study of mastopathy causes and development can allow complex pathogenetic therapy in treatment of dyshormonal processes in the breast tissue. Conservative treatment of the patients should be performed individually considering the revealed psychosomatic, hormonal and somatic disorders. Pathogenetically substantiated therapy for fibrocystic mastopathy, correction of metabolic disorders can promote breast cancer prevention.
Key words: fibrocystic mastopathy, pathogenesis, psychosocial, hormonal and somatic disorders.
