Abstract

Associations between histologically defined proliferative, but benign, epithelial disorders of the breast and risk factors for breast carcinoma were examined in 568 patients whose breast biopsies were submitted consecutively to the laboratory. Some disorders were associated with multiparity. Blunt duct adenosis was associated with a family history of breast cancer. Apart from a positive association with fibroadenoma, use of oral contraceptives was not associated with any proliferative lesion. Proliferative epithelial lesion changes were not associated with other aspects of obstetric or gynecological history.
