Benign breast disorders and diseases are commonly encountered in Indian clinical practice. Though reliable statistics are not available, the incidence of such disorders, in India, is thought to exceed that of carcinoma breast by a factor of ten or more.

Cultural inhibitions often prevent the Indian woman from seeking medical attention for a breast-related problem. Further, non-cancerous conditions are deemed unworthy of attention. Often, patients are subjected to needless surgical biopsies and unnecessary lifelong surveillance, with psychological consequences. And it seems a matter of luck that the patient receives appropriate management at all.

This is tragic, as the risk of breast cancer is generally lower among Indian women as a whole, as compared to women in the more developed countries. Yet the common problems of the breast have received scant attention so far, in developing countries

Benign Breast Diseases was written to focus attention on these common problems, to enable the medical practitioner to distinguish the benign from the malignant condition.
