This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

Fresh cysts and glandular growths, springing from the interior of a parent-cyst, will burst through the containing cyst and ulcerated skin, and present a protruding vascular mass, which then grows apace. These cystic productions are not necessarily malignant, though they are often recurrent and associated with cancer. Fibrous tumours, as well as myeloid, are rare in the breast; and tubercle is never found in it. The mammary glandular tumour (adenocele) is an independent growth, though presenting similarity to the structure of the true gland: the morbid deposit is contained in a capsule, and gradually encroaches upon and replaces the absorbed gland.

This tumour is movable, firm and elastic, and attended with but little pain; its removal is usually successful, if none of the diseased texture be left. Though the medullary and colloid forms of cancer are occasionally met with in the breast, they are rare compared with the fibroid form. The medullary is more often secondary than primary; but it is not unusual to find that a cancer, originally scirrhus, is medullary in those portions which fungate or which are growing rapidly. Scirrhus, or hard cancer, is frequent in the breast, and almost always commences as an infiltration in the gland tissue itself, which it displaces as it grows. It is usually of slow growth, and rigid, irregular and cartilaginous to the touch: but these characters are less marked when the growth is rapid. The nipple is often retracted, and the pain is of a sharp, lancinating, or plunging character and not constant.
