Overview of Breasts

Breasts are glandular organs or two mounds of fatty tissue located on the chest wall of females and, in rare cases, males. They are the primary female sexual organs, and in females, their primary function is lactation (milk production) to nourish offspring. In males, they are vestigial organs and have little to no function.

Hormones like progesterone are imperative for the development and functioning of the breasts. They stimulate the growth and differentiation of glandular tissue during puberty, pregnancy and lactation.

The breast undergoes various changes throughout a woman's life, including during puberty, menstrual cycles, pregnancy, breastfeeding and menopause.
