Introduction: A breast lesion biopsy procedure is a gold standard for the diagnostic evaluation of breast lesions with primary aim to identify the cause, especially to determine whether carcinoma or premalignant lesions are present. Painful breast lump is the commonest presenting symptom in surgery out-patient department. Here, we are presenting a study of 300 breast biopsies studied histologically at rural tertiary care centre. Objectives: This study was done to evaluate 300 breast lesion samples histopathologically at a rural tertiary care centre.Material and Methods: A total of 300 breast biopsies were processed and H & E staining was done. Special staining and IHC was done wherever required. Histopathological correlation was done in all the cases and the results were compared to other studies.Results: In our study of 300 breast lesions, the minimum age observed was 08 years and maximum age of 90 years with a male to female ratio of 1:18. The most common lesion in our study was benign neoplasms of breast of which fibroadenoma was predominant and observed in the age group 20-29 years followed by next common lesion as breast malignancies observed in the age group of 60-69 years.Conclusion: Histopathological examination of breast tissue is an important tool to diagnose various breast lesions. It is important to know the histological pattern of various breast lesions in the different age group patients, as it will help to differentiate inflammatory from neoplastic lesions, benign from malignant lesions and helps in the prognosis and management of the cases.
