The breast is a modified sweat gland. It consists of ducts, alveoli and fibrofatty connective tissue. During puberty, there is proliferation of fibrofatty tissue, without any change in the alveoli-ductal system.
The endocrine control of lactation can be divided in following stage:
a. Mammogenesis – Preparation of breast
b. Lactogenesis – Synthesis and secretion of milk by breast alveoli
c. Galactokinesis – Ejection of milk
d. Galactopoiesis – Maintenance of milk
