Introduction
The mammary glands of all mammals are structurally and functionally designed to produce milk for offspring. Rodent mammary glands are encased within the mammary fat pad. The human mammary glands are within the breasts, which are complex and unique anatomic structures. All mammary glands are relatively simple branching tubular organs with typically one to two layers of epithelial cells.
