Dr. Sanjay G. Surase | Dr. Rakesh T. Shedge | Dr. Disha Jalan


Abstract: The overall diagnostic accuracy of cytology in diagnosing benign breast lesions was found to be 89.7 % in this study. To study the cytomorphological spectrum of benign breast lesions on fine needle aspiration cytology & correlate FNAC findings with histopathological findings wherever available. Accuracy of Cytology for fibroadenoma was 92.1 %, for fibrocystic disease was 88.9 % and for gyanecomastia, abscess, phyllodes tumors was 100 %. FNAC helps in preoperative evaluation of breast lumps without surgical intervention. However, overlapping features of different lesions can also cause cytodiagnostic errors. There exists a high degree of correlation with histopathological findings. In cases of discordance, histopathology remains gold standard diagnostic modality.
