Abstract: We hereby present a case series of and epidemiological study on benign breast diseases among rural population of North Maharashtra. Breast health awareness has resulted in increasing detection of early breast cancer and corresponding decrease in breast cancer morbidity. About 80% of breast biopsies result in a benign pathology. Women with a benign disorder, require treatment at some time in their lives. The concept of ANDI – Aberrations of Normal Development and Involution is gaining acceptance. This study highlights the spectrum of epidemiology of benign breast diseases in rural population.
