Breast pathologies has a grave influence on morbidities and mortalities in all nations. Reasons for high prevalence of breast cancer in Iran is a point of great debate, which needs more data to interpret better. So, we decided to perform a study showing frequencies of breast pathologies .


In a cross sectional study in Rasul Akram University Hospital, we gathered information's of 150 patients, who came to our center to evaluate breast lumps in the year 2015. All the patients undergone breast biopsy. The data documented mentioning, Age, Gender, Pathology type.


From 150 cases, 146 patients were female(97.3%), and 4 were male(2.7%). 106 were invasive ductal carinoma(70.7%) which had the highest frequency. Other pathologies frequency were; fibroadenoma 14 cases(9.3%), Lobular carcinoma 12 cases(8%), Intraductal papiloma 5 cases (3.3%), Phyllodes tumor 3 cases (2%), Mucinous Carcinoma 2 cases (1.3%), Fat necrosis 2 cases (1.3%). And the lowest prevalences were, Metastasis to the breast, fibrotic tissue due to previous mastectomy, granulomatous mastitis with only one case (0.7%). There was accompaniment of fibrocystic changes with all the pathologies, 67 cases(44.67%). It worth mentioning that the strongest concomitance was between Fibrocystic changes and invasive ductal carcinoma, 45 cases (67.16% of the fibrocystic changes).


Breast cancer has a very high prevalence worldwide. The prevalence seems to be even higher in Iran . Therefore we are in the greatest need for screening and training high risk patients, to detect the carcinoma in the lower stages to lessen the burden of the disease.
