The Authors report their own results concerning plasma hormonal dosages in Benign Breast Disease (BBD) and Premenstrual Mastodynia (PM). Dosages were realized during the second phase of the cycle, 4 to 8 days following ovulation, according to the basal body temperature. 171 Patients were studied: fibro-cystic disease 82 cases; BBD + severe PM 71 cases; and isolated PM 18 cases. It was shown that the levels of Estradiol and Progesterone were within normal ranges in a great majority of cases; it was the same for the PG/E2 Ratio. The Prolactin levels were within the physiological norms; the responses to TRH were normal, and elevated only in a few cases. Based only on hormonal dosages, we concluded that there was no estrogeno-luteal imbalance nor dysprolactinemia in BBD and/or PM.
