The breast is a mass of glandular, fatty, and fibrous tissues positioned over the pectoral muscles of the chest wall and attached to the chest wall by fibrous strands called Cooper’s ligaments. A layer of fatty tissue surrounds the breast glands and extends throughout the breast. The glandular tissues of the breast house the lobules (milk producing glands at the ends of the lobes) and the ducts (milk passages).
