Author(s): Dr. Narasimhaiah K, Dr. Tejus V Nagi Reddy and Dr. Archana BH
Abstract: Fibroadenoma is the most common lesion of the breast; it occurs in 25% of asymptomatic women. They are benign, spherical, well-demarcated tumors of varying size. They arise from the epithelium and stroma of the terminal duct-lobular unit. It is usually a disease of early reproductive life; the peak incidence is between the ages of 15 and 35 years. All the patients were examined systematically including breast examination and systematic examination and assessment of nutritional status. All underwent routine investigations which included blood counts- Hb%, BT, CT, Blood sugar levels(RBS), Blood urea, Serum creatinine, Urine routine and ECG. Investigations like USG and Mammography were done in some number of required cases. 34 out of 50 of our patients underwent USG examination of the breast. 15 of these i.e. 30% had features of fibroadenoma, 6(12%) had features of Abscess, 7(14%) had features of benign breast disease and the remaining 5 had other features suggestive of galactocele, benign cyst, phylloides, lipoma of the breast. One patient had bilateral fibroadenoma of the breast.
