Atypical ductal hyperplasia is a diagnosis made on a biopsy from a breast lump when the tissue being examined exhibits some, but not all of the characteristics of a ductal carcinoma of the breast.

With these findings it is usually prudent to remove the lump surgically in order to prevent the condition from progressing to a cancer.
