ABSTRACT
Breast tissue reacts to estrogen and progesterone stimulation, not only during puberty, pregnancy and lactation, but during each menstrual cycle. As the menopausal period is approached and postmenopausal period evolves, progressive atrophy of the epithelial and connective tissue components of the breast occurs. The loose connective tissue becomes dense and hyalinized and finally, the lobule is converted into ordinary stroma which in the process of involution is replaced by fat. All patients undergoing core needle biopsy of breast were selected for the study. An informed consent will be taken for the procedure. Under local anesthesia using 14 G needle, ultrasound guided core needle biopsy will be performed by radiologist. The biopsy specimen will be sent to histopathology department in 10% formalin. The tissue will be processed, stained with haematoxylin and eosin and examined microscopically. In present study, the most common presenting complaint is breast lump comprising of 59 cases (98.3%). Out of 59 cases 31 cases (51.7%) had lump on left side, 28 cases (46.7%) had lump on right side.1 case had no lump (1%). In the present study 41 cases underwent mammogram, 24 cases (58.5%) showed BIRADS 5 scoring followed by BIRADS 4 in 12 cases (29.3%) and BIRADS 2 in 5 cases (12.2%).
