Humans Have Been Plagued By Diseases Throughout The History Of Civilization. Medical Science Has Conquered Many Of The Infectious Diseases That Formerly Destroyed Large Populations. But Cancer Is Still Considered As The Worse Disease Of Non-Epidemic Kind. It Is Notorious In The Sense That It Can Affect Anyone Without Any Regard To Race Or Religion, Rich Or Poor, From Young To Old Alike. In Humans And Other Mammals, The Breasts Form A Secondary Sexual Feature Of Females And Are The Source Of Nutrition For The Neonate, Although They Are Also Present In Rudimentary Form In Males. It Is Both Ironic And Tragic That Malignant Neoplasms Arising From This Organ, Readily Accessible To Selfexamination And Clinical Diagnosis, Continue To Be A Heavy Toll Among Women. The Incidence Of Female Breast Cancer Is Rising Rapidly Between The Ages Of 35 And 50. Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Comprises The Largest Group Of Malignancy Ie.65% - 80% Of Breast Carcinoma73. Carcinoma Breast Can Be Proved By Pathological Examination Of Breast Tissue Only. Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy Is A Safe Procedure That Is Diagnostically Superior To Trucut Needle Biopsy50. An Accuracy Rate Of 96.5% Was Obtained28. Agnor Study Done In Histologic Specimen Showed High Agnor Count In Malignant Lesions Than Benign Lesions41. “EARLIER THE DIAGNOSIS, BETTER THE PROGNOSIS” Having This In Mind, The Present Study Has Been Conducted To Assess The Accuracy Of Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy, Trucut Biopsy And To Evaluate And Compare Agnor Score In Breast Neoplasms.
