Proliferative lesions of the ductal and lobular epithelium of the breast conferring a risk of 5 or more times of developing carcinoma than the control populations are considered high risk. The best-defined lesions in this category are atypical ductal hyperplasia and lobular neoplasia. The risk for other lesions such as columnar cell hyperplasia and atypical apocrine adenosis are less well defined.
