Abstract:Background: Atypical hyperplasia of breast is benign lesion seen in females and requires early intervention to prevent complications. The present study was conducted to assess the risk factors associated with atypical hyperplasia of breast. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 156 cases of diagnosed atypical hyperplasia of breast. Type, family history and foci was evaluated in all cases. All histologic slides from biopsy specimens of women containing breast parenchyma were examined. Results: Age group <40 years had 20 cases, 40-60 years had 60 and >60 years had 76 cases. The difference was significant (P-0.01). Types of hyperplasia were ductal hyperplasia (50), lobular hyperplasia (86) and ductal & lobular hyperplasia (20). The difference was significant (P-0.01). There was strong family history seen in 54 cases, weak in 30 cases and none in 72 cases. Foci of atypical hyperplasia was 1 (112), 2 (34) and 3 (10). The difference was significant (P-0.01). Conclusion: Advanced age and family history are risk factors. Atypical hyperplasia of breast may be determined by biopsy of the lesion. This is useful in reaching the diagnosis.
