Cations and dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate in cyst fluid of pre- and menopausal patients with gross cystic disease of the breast. Evidence for the existence of subpopulations of cysts.

Abstract

Cations (K+ and Na+) content was evaluated in 444 breast cyst fluid (BCF) specimens, aspirated from 391 patients with gross cystic disease of the breast (GCD), a benign form admittedly at major risk of cancer. In 306/444 BCF, dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate (DHA-S) content was also evaluated. A positive correlation (P less than 0.001) was observed between… (More)
