Cytohistological Evaluation of Unusual Male Breast lesions: A Case Series from a Tertiary Care Centre
Keywords:Complex fibroadenoma, Fibromatosis, FNAC, Male breast lumps.
Introduction: Pathologic lesions of male breast are not as common as its female counterpart.
In this study we have reported six cases of unusual pathological lesions of male breast presenting clinically as
breast lump studied by Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) with histologic correlation.
Method: 6 male patients were studied who presented to us with breast lump and had FNAC done with subsequent
Result: Out of 6 cases, 3 were fibromatosis (desmoid-type), 2 cases of invasive carcinoma involving both breasts
with axillary lymph node metastasis and 1 case of complex fibroadenoma were reported. In all of the above cases
definitive diagnosis was given on FNAC with subsequent histopathological confirmation except for fibromatosis
in which the diagnosis was benign breast lesion on FNAC.
Conclusion: FNAC being a fast and cheap diagnostic tool proves to be a reliable diagnostic method for evaluation
of breast lumps at an earliest with excellent histologic reproducibility.
