f1 expnd0expndtw0kerning0 Well if you combine ADH, Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia,
with a family history of breast cancer, suddenly then the risk can go up considerably for the
future development of breast cancer, and therefore it’92s really important to know what your
family history is. pardtx2367pardeftab720pardirnaturalqj

So let me give you a hypothetical: If you had a sister who had breast cancer, and another
sister or an aunt who had ovarian cancer and you also know you, the patient, had ADH, would
absolutely want to be in the hands of a genetic counselor and tested for the possibility of
carrying the breast cancer gene, because if you were found to have the breast cancer gene,
then you might be considering, as an example, prophylactic mastectomies.
So hopefully this explanation of what is Atypical
Ductal Hyperplasia is helpful to you. As I have said repeatedly, if you have that diagnosis,
you need to be in the hands of competent people who do this all the time, in the hands of
a multidisciplinary team.
ADH may significantly increase your risk for breast cancer, depending on your family history.
