Introduction: FNAC is a widely practiced and widely accepted technique for the early evaluation of breast lumps. It is a minimally invasive, simple and cost effective procedure [1, 5]. Aim: The main aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of FNAC in benign breast lesions in correlation with histopathological diagnosis. Materials and Methods: This study is a prospective study conducted over a period of 1 year from June 2018 to June 2019.A total of 100 cases of benign breast lumps for which FNAC was done with histopathological follow up wherever possible. Results: Benign breast lesions were commonly found in the age group of 21-30 years and the commonest lesion encountered in our study was fibroadenoma. The diagnostic accuracy of FNAC in benign breast disease is found to be 84%.
