ABSTRACT
Background: Prognosis of breast cancer and success of therapeutic interventions largely rely on clinico-pathologic and biological characteristics of tumor and vary due to the heterogenous nature of breast cancers. This study was intended to find correlation between the expression of Estrogen receptor (ER), Progesterone receptor (PR) and Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor-2 (HER-2/neu) with histological grade in case of carcinoma of breast.
Material and Method: This study was conducted on 56 histologically confirmed specimens of breast carcinoma in Department of Pathology, Surat Municipal Institute of Medical Education and Research.
Results: Maximum number of cases of breast carcinoma were found in 41-50 years aged females. Invasive ductal carcinoma-not otherwise specified (IDC-NOS) (82.14%) was most common histological type. Most of the carcinoma showed grade II (62.5%). ER, PR and HER-2/neu positivity was 50%, 42.86% and 42.86% respectively.
Conclusion: Evaluation of ER, PR and HER-2/neu status and tumor grade should be incorporated routinely as a part of histopathological reports in all cases of breast carcinoma as they not only help in histopathologic assessment of prognosis, but also help in deciding the management thereby improving overall survival.
