The Triple Assessment in breast lump diagnosis includes a combined approach by clinical examination, mammosonography and Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology. Correlation between BI-RADS categories & cytological findings are useful approach to establish an accurate preoperative diagnosis and for planning treatment. The present study included 100 patients with palpable breast lesions. Detailed history of patients and mammosonography findings (BI-RADS category) were noted. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) smears were stained by Pap stain, H & E stain and Giemsa stain. Microscopic examination & reporting were done in correlation with BI-RADS categories. In present study majority of patients were between 41-50 years age with right side predominance. In FNAC findings, 45 patients had malignant lesions (predominantly Ductal carcinoma) & 55 patients had benign lesions (predominantly Fibroadenoma). It showed overall 93% concordance with BI-RADS categories.
