Background: Breast pathologies has a greatinfluence on morbidities and mortalities in all nations. Reasons for high prevalence of breast cancer in Iran is a point of intensedebate, which needs more data for better interpretion. Thus, we decided to perform a study showing frequencies of breast pathologies.
Methods: In a cross sectional study in Rasule- Akramhospital, 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 were forage, gender, and pathology type.
Results: From 150 cases, 146 patients were female (97.3%), and 4 were male (2.7%). 106 hadinvasive ductal carcinoma (70.7%) which had the highest frequency. Other pathologies were; fibroadenoma 14 cases (9.3%), lobular carcinoma 12 cases (8%), Intraductalpapiloma 5 cases (3.3%), phyllodes tumor 3 cases (2%), mucinous carcinoma 2 cases (1.3%), fat necrosis 2 cases (1.3%). The lowest prevalent disease types weremetastasis to the breast, fibrotic tissue due to previous mastectomy, and granulomatous mastitis with only one case (0.7%). In 67 cases (44.67%)there was accompaniment of fibrocystic changes with other mentioned pathologies, within which the strongest concomitance of the fibrocystic changeswas for invasive ductal carcinoma in45 cases (67.16%).
Conclusion: Breast cancer has a very high prevalence worldwide. The prevalence seems to be even higher in Iran. Therefore, we to screenand train high risk patients to detect the carcinoma in the lower stages to lessen the burden of the disease.
