Yes, Lion, there is - it's called atypical hyperplasia. This is a condition detected via biopsy. Perhaps you felt a lump or thickening, had a biopsy done, and were told the lump wasn’t cancerous, but that it exhibited “atypical hyperplasia.” This is an overgrowth of abnormal-appearing cells in the ducts and lobules of the breast. They’re not cancer cells… but neither are they normal. They’re somewhere in between, with a risk of developing into cancer cells. Kind of like, it’s not raining yet, but those dark clouds sure look ominous… - PJH
