Ductal malignancy is the most common type of breast cancer in women. Present-day non-operative diagnosis of breast lesions comprises “triple assessment” by physical examination, imaging, and pathology. Histopathology is gold standard for the diagnosis of breast lesion.
Aim: The present study is done to study the histomorphology of non-neoplastic and neoplastic breast lesions, their clinical aspect and age distribution.
Materials and Methods: This was a retrospective observational study conducted in the pathology department at tertiary health care institute from August 2016 to September 2019. The specimen was grossed, processed, sectioned, stained with haematoxylin and eosin.
Results: A total 150 cases were studied in two years. Out of 150 cases, 147 were females and three were males. Fibrocystic disease was the common nonproliferative lesion while fibroadenoma was the most common proliferative breast lesion. Most common malignant lesion was invasive duct carcinoma.
Conclusion: Benign breast diseases are more common among young women. Fibroadenoma is most common followed by fibrocystic disease. Ductal malignancy is commonly seen in elderly women.
