For women, the most common ones are: Fibrocystic breast changes, Fibro adenomas, Mastitis, Fat necrosis, Calcification, Nipple discharge. Less common types of benign breast conditions include: Hyperplasia, Adenosis, Intraductal papillomas, Lipoma. Benign breast conditions are generally caused by a number of factors. Those factors include the makeup of breasts (fatty tissue vs. dense or thick tissue), age, hormone problems, hormone therapy, birth control pills, pregnancy, menopause, being overweight, infection, and breastfeeding. The exact cause can often be traced back to your specific diagnosis. These are rare in men. Men do have undeveloped milk ducts.
