Adenosis, Other Types
Adenomyoepithelial adenosis/apocrine adenosis/secretory adenosis; Adenosis tumor/nodular adenosis; Simple adenosis/adenosis; Tubular adenosis
Adenomyoepithelial adenosis: A benign proliferative lesion characterized by the simultaneous hyperplasia in both glandular and myoepithelial cells of the units of the lobules.
Adenosis tumor: A clinically and/or macroscopically recognizable breast lesion that, histologically, primarily consists of sclerosing adenosis ( Sclerosing Adenosis).
Tubular adenosis: A very rare benign lesion composed of disorderly growing, noncrowded narrow tubules that may mimic invasive carcinoma.
Simple adenosis: An increase in size and number of lobules.
Adenomyoepithelial adenosis: In the literature, few cases are reported.
Adenosis tumor: Rare.
Tubular adenosis: Very rare, only few cases have been reported.
Simple adenosis: Incidental finding in surgical specimens.
Adenomyoepithelial adenosis: The age range is...
