ABSTRACT
Aims & objectives
1. To determine the frequency distribution of the benign and malignant tumors occurring in female genital tract.
2. To find out the age distribution of occurrence of benign and malignant tumors in female genital tract.
3. To find out the incidence of malignancy in female genital tract in a local population.
Materials and Methods: This study was carried out on the rural population in a tertiary care centre on 520 cases where the data and histopathology slides were retrieved from the hospital records from September 2016 to August 2019.
Results: A total of 520 FGT surgical biopsies with various types of neoplastic lesions were received. Out of which 375 were non-neoplastic and 145 were neoplastic lesions. Among the 145 neoplastic cases, 113 cases (77.93%) were reported as benign, 16 cases (11.03%) premalignant and 16 cases (11.03%) were malignant. Leiomyoma was the most common benign tumor of uterine body and squamous cell carcinoma of cervix was the most common malignant tumor. Both benign and malignant tumors were reported in the age group of 41-50 years and 31-40 years respectively.
Conclusion: Leiomyoma is the commonest benign tumor arising in the female genital tract. Squamous cell carcinoma of cervix is the common malignant tumor. Routine screening tests are mandatory for reducing the incidence of malignancies and pre-malignant lesions of the female genital tract especially in high risk patients.
