Breast neoplasms

There are many types of breast neoplasms, which can be divided into the following broad over simplified categories as a starting point.

Intralobular and interlobular refer to the terminal duct lobular unit (TDLU).

Although many of the epithelial lesions/changes listed below are neoplastic, they are best thought of as neoplasms at increased risk and along a continuum with normal breast at one end and invasive carcinoma at the other.
