Abstract:Introduction: Finding the type and cause of cancer to treat patients appropriately is capturing the attention of clinicians. In this study, we tried to project incidence of various types of carcinoma of breasts in this region and its clinical presentation.
Materials and Methods: A total 64 patients presenting with breast lump with or without lymphadenopathy and confirmed as malignancy by Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology were included in this study conducted from February 2018 to November 2019.
Results: Majority of carcinoma of breast cases were noted in the age group of 41-60 years i.e., 57.8%. Out of 64 patients, 57 (89.06%) had invasive ductal cell carcinoma (IDCC) and 3 (10.9%) patients had lobular carcinoma.
Conclusion: Most of the patients in this study had stage III breast carcinoma. State health authorities need to focus in this community about creating breast cancer awareness and should conduct health campaigns and encourage early screening.
