In India, according to year 2020 Statistics, Breast Cancer was the most prevalent cancer in women, followed by cancer of Cervix Uteri. During the past two decades, the incidence of Breast cancer has increased tremendously. The cause may be attributed to “Westernization” trends.
Materials and Methods: The present study is a retrospective study where all modified radical mastectomy specimens received in the department were grossed and processed and sections stained with Haematoxylin and Eosin. A total of 24 modified radical mastectomy specimens were evaluated.
