Benign breast diseases constitute a heterogeneous group of lesions which include developmental abnormalities, inflammatory lesions, epithelial and stromal proliferations, and neoplasms. Benign breast diseases are often considered as aberrations of normal development and involution. The increasing campaigns for breast health have increased awareness among women causing an increase in the number of cases detected.
Aim: We intended to study the epidemiology of Benign Breast diseases in Females at a tertiary care hospital.
Materials and Methods: 78 patients attending the Outpatient and Inpatient Department of Surgery at a tertiary care hospital from January 2020 to December 2021 was carried out. Various parameters such as age, sex, disease pattern, lesion types, histopathological diagnosis, and clinical diagnosis.
Results: Among all the cases, fibroadenoma (60) was the most common benign breast disease found mainly in patients who were in second and third decade of life. According to sex distribution, females were 77 and males were 1. The next commonest was fibrocystic disease (12) found in less than 40 years of age. All of our patients presented with lump in the breast, 57 on right side, 18 on left side and 03 bilateral. Lump breast was the main presentation in all (100%) of our patients.
Conclusions: Epidemiology of benign breast diseases still remains the same when analyzed with a past and recent study on benign breast diseases.
