Cytomorphological patterns of palpable breast lesions diagnosed on fine needle aspiration cytology

Abhishek Rajendrabhai Godhani, Pooja Kagathara.

Abstract
Background: Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is a simple, minimally invasive, cost-effective, and outpatient-based method for diagnosing various palpable lesions. Breast cancer is the commonest malignancy in women worldwide, and adequate preoperative evaluation is essential to managing breast lumps. Although core needle biopsy has evolved as the diagnostic tool of choice for breast lumps, Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology remains an important diagnostic tool. Material & Method: We have conducted a retrospective study of FNAC of palpable breast lumps for one year (June 2020 to May 2021) in the Pathology department at Shantabaa Medical College and General Hospital, Amreli. All patients were outpatient based on surgical OPD. A total of 46 FNACs from palpable breast lesions were studied. Results: Out of 46 FNACs, 25 were benign, including infective aetiology, 12 were suspicious for malignancy, and 9 were malignant. Conclusion: FNAC serves as a rapid, economic and reliable tool for diagnosing palpable breast lesions. Cytopathological examination of lesions before operation or treatment is an important diagnostic modality.

Key words: Breast lump, Cytopathology, Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology
