tissue.

Stage 2 : is the breast bud stage. Here, there is elevation of the breast and
nipple as a small mound ; the areola begins to enlarge. Milk ducts inside the
breast begin to grow.

Stage 3 : there is further enlargement and elevation of the breast and areola
(with no separation of their contours). The areola begins to darken in colour. The
milk ducts begin to give rise to milk glands that begin to grow.

Stage 4 : projection of the areola and nipple to form a secondary mound.

Stage 5 : there is projection of the nipple only (though in some woman the
areola continues to form a secondary mound).
