Introduction: Breast carcinoma is the most frequent cancer among women worldwide. Breast lesions most commonly present as lump. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is an ideal initial diagnostic modality considering patient’s comfort, lack of requirement of anesthesia, rapid analysis and reporting, and few false positive results.
Materials and Methods: In the present study cyto-histological correlation was done in 61 patients.
Observation and Result: Out of 61 patients, 43 were benign, 17 were malignant and one was inflammatory on cytological examination. On histopathological examination 41 were benign and 19 were malignant and one was found to be inflammatory. Cyto-histopathological correlation was found in 96.7% cases.
Conclusion: FNAC is a useful preliminary tool for diagnosing the breast lumps in our set up.
