Background: Breast lump can present as inflammatory to neoplastic lesion. Any kind of lesion present in breast makes anxiety to patient for cancer. Histopathology is key for confirm each lesion.
Objective: This study is aimed to observe histomorphological variation of excised breast lump in Lumbini zone of Nepal.
Materials & methods: Prospective descriptive study was done from April 2016 to October 2016 of excised 54 cases of all female breast lumps in National Path Lab, Rupendehi, Nepal. FNAC and excised male breast lump were excluded from the study.
Results: The entire excised breast lumps were categorized as Inflammatory, Non-neoplastic and Neoplastic. Neoplastic is classified as Benign and Malignant lesion. Out of 54 cases aged from 15 -72 years, Fibroadenoma, Fibrocystic Disease, Abscess/Mastitis and Invasive Ductal Carcinoma was dominant lesion of each categories. Fibroadenoma, Fibrocystic Disease with equal frequency of 25.92%, Abscess/Mastitis and Invasive Ductal Carcinoma was22.22% and 7.40% respectively
Conclusion: Malignant lesion was least common of each category with predominance of Invasive Ductal Carcinoma 7.40% .Invasive Ductal Carcinoma was prevalent in 7th decades.
