The breast lump is clinical presentation of numerous breast disorders ranging from innocent benign cysts to malignant neoplastic lesions. Distinction of benign from malignant is of paramount importance for patient care and proper management. One fourth of the women suffer from breast diseases in their lifetime. Carcinoma of the breast is the second most common cancer in the world. Lump in the breast is the commonest presentation of breast carcinoma. An early and accurate diagnosis is of paramount importance because the treatment can be initiated much earlier and may be life saving in most cases. The conventional open biopsy is considered as gold standard for confirming the diagnosis but it can be time consuming and economically unviable in most cases. A definite preoperative diagnosis of breast lump provides ample opportunity for patients to be counseled and single stage surgical treatment be made possible. Thus the combination of physical examination, mammography and FNAC came in the picture which is known as Triple Assessment. (Triple Test). A triple test has been formed which is quick, least invasive and cost effective in terms of money and time. Source
