Abstract: Fibroadenomas are benign breast tumours characterized by an admixture of stromal and epithelial tissue. Breasts are made of lobules (milk producing glands) and ducts (tubes that carry the milk to the nipple). These are surrounded by glandular, fibrous and fatty tissues. Fibroadenomas develop from the lobules. The glandular tissue and ducts grow over the lobule to form a solid lump. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate a approach to the management of breast fibroadenomas using ultra sound sonography. The 100 patients having age below 30 years and females were enrolled in the study. The Ultrasound was performed in the range of 7 to 18 MHz Corresponding Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) cytology. All cytology was classified C1 to C5 where C1, inadequate sample for testing; C2, benign epithelial cells; C3, atypiamore likely to be benign; C4, highly suspicious of malignancy; C4, malignant present. The total 100 patients undergone the ultrasound sonography diagnosis of the breast fibroadenomaas in females were evaluated for the current study. Fibroadenoma is common in females. This type of Ultrasound assessment provides a quick diagnosis and it alleviated unnecessary anxiety for the patients about breast cancer. The clinical diagnosis of the breast lump as confirmed by radiology and pathology was accurate. Hence the Ultrasound technique can effectively used for diagnosis of the Fibroadenoma.
