All these important components of the breast are supported by deep stroma layers or connective tissue.
The milk ducts will become blocked dilated, and eventually fill with fluid, if the glands and stroma become overgrown. The exact causes of breast cysts are still unknown, but some scientific evidence discovered that an excess of estrogen may be responsible for their development.
