Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinic-pathological spectrum of breast biopsies for a period of three years.
Materials and Methods: This study includes 529 breast pathology cases received by histopathology laboratories of Department of pathology, Government Medical College, Srinagar between January 2017 to January December 2019. The samples included mastectomies, lumpectomies, core needle biopsy and tru cut biopsy specimens.
Results: In the present study, out of 529 cases there were 56 (10.58%) inflammatory lesions, 287 (54.2%) benign lesions and 186 (35.16%) malignant lesions. Fibroadenoma was the most common benign breast lesion. Among the malignant breast lesions, infiltrating duct cell carcinoma was the most common.
Conclusion: The pattern of breast lesions observed showed higher prevelance of non-malignant breast lesions over malignant lesions. Awareness and screening of these entities can facilitate early diagnosis and management.
