Abstract

Objective:  of this study to study the effect of age and specific age groups in the distribution of breast mass in Thi-Qar, to determine the effect of most determinant factors included in obstetric history on that distribution, and to assess the validity of radiological investigations and  FNA about histopathological diagnosis of breast masses for patients counseling  breast disease clinic in Thi-Qar 2018. Design: A cross sectional analytical design was used.                                                    Patients: All women presented with breast mass at defined age, were included. Results:  The rate of malignancy increased with age; at ages  >45 years about half of cases were malignant (47%), and constitute(57.4%) of the total malignancies,  while the other ages categories of < 45 years, the proportion of malignancy among cases of the same categories about (16%), and constitute (25%), (17%) for ages interval (30-45), (<30) respectively On other hand FNA  are 82% specific and 96% sensitive compared to definitive histopathologic results in the diagnosis of breast masses. Conclusion The findings of the current work suggested that age was a strongly correlated factor and about 57.5% of the malignancies were above 45. FNA  are 82% specific and 96% sensitive in relation to definitive histopathologic results.
