Resumen breve

Benign diseases of the breast are common clinical conditions that affect young women. Complaints related to the breast often cause significant discomfort and mental stress. The following study will try to identify the risk factors that may be associated with symptomatic benign breast diseases. Identification of such factors may help preventing and / or treating these conditions.

Descripción detallada

Benign breast disease (BBD) is a common cause of hospital visit. In young adults, benign breast conditions surpass cancer as a cause of symptoms related to the breast. However, breast symptoms may be associated with significant distress and may impose diagnostic difficulties. Moreover, certain pathological entities of benign breast conditions are well known to increase the risk of breast cancer.

Identification of modifiable risk factors associated with symptomatic breast disorders has several potential benefits. Modification of such factors may help decrease patients' distress, hospital visits and indirectly decrease the risk of cancer.

the available data point to the possible association of several environmental factors with symptomatic BBD. Most of the available information points to an association of BBD with anthropometric features, growth pattern, family history of breast conditions and dietary consumption. Substantial evidence are however lacking and further studies are strongly required to better characterize the risk factors of the condition.

In this study, the investigators will systematically collect epidemiological, developmental and clinical data in young patients presenting with breast complaints. The association with disease incidence, pattern and histology will be examined.

Descripción: Patients presenting with current symptoms related to the breast. Adult females aged 18-39 years presenting to the breast outpatient clinic with either mastalgia, nodularity and/or discharge. A questionnaire, physical examination and bilateral breast ultrasonography will be obtained for all patients. A- The questionnaire will contain the following items: symptoms related to the breast. other medical history. menstrual history. obstetric history. rapid screener for beverages and fast food consumption. rapid screener for vegetables and fruit consumption. B- Physical examination will specifically records the following: breast tender point(s). breast nodularity. nipple discharge. weight, height, body mass index (BMI). C- bilateral breast ultrasonography for all patients. D- breast biopsy when clinically indicated as per hospital policy.

Etiqueta: Control group

Descripción: Age-matched healthy volunteers with no current medical conditions. Adult females aged 18-39 years with no current breast problems. These healthy volunteers will be asked to complete the same questionnaire as per the Study group and have anthropometric measure. A- The questionnaire will contain the following items: other medical history. menstrual history. obstetric history. rapid screener for beverages and fast food consumption. rapid screener for vegetables and fruit consumption. B- Physical examination will specifically records the following: 1- weight, height, body mass index (BMI).
