The increase in the incidence of benign breast diseases in women is a significant medical and social problem. The leading risk factor for this pathology is overweight. Currently, there is no individual approach to the management of overweight women, which provides a high risk of developing dysplastic changes in the mammary gland.

Objective — to substantiate the effectiveness of the comprehensive approach to the treatment of fibrocystic mastopathy in overweight patients.

Material and methods. The study included 164 women with fibrocystic mastopathy and overweight. The treatment was aimed at reducing the body weight of patients while taking the drug Indinol Forto.

Results. Over a 6-month period, we managed to normalize the quality of life indicators, reduce the body weight of patients, and the size of pathological formations in the mammary glands.

Conclusion. The comprehensive approach to the treatment of patients with benign breast diseases of the mammary gland and overweight allows us achieving positive results.
