Mammalogy (from the Latin mamma - mammary gland and Greek λόγος -. science) - a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis of mammary gland diseases, as well as their treatment and prevention. The scope of the mammalogists activities also includes the reconstruction of mammary glands.
One of the most prevalent breast disease is mastopathy, which is fibrocystic disease, caused by a hormonal imbalance. Treatment and prophylaxis of mastopathy, as well as regular inspections by qualified specialists from Surgery Clinic of «K + 31», make it possible to avoid the development of the widespread forms of mammary glands cancer.
Modern approaches to the treatment of mastopathy may be different, due to extraordinary diversity of clinical, radiological and morphological changes combined into fibrocystic breast disease group.
