Introduction: Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer in females in the world and is the second most common cancer in India after cervical cancer. The breast cancer is second most common reason of loss of existence in each developed and additionally most of the growing countries. For the appraisal of prognosis of breast cancer commonly followed is the NOTTINGHAM PROGNOSTIC INDEX (NPI) which includes- tumor size, histological tumor grade, lymph node metastasis and hormone receptor status. These prognostic component help in administration and therapeutic requirement of breast cancer patient.
Aim & Objectives: 1. To study the MRM specimens for size, grade of the tumor, LVI and LN metastases and the ER/PR receptors of the tumor. 2.To study the association of ER/PR status with the above mentioned prognostic parameters.
Materials and Methods: This three-year study includes 50 histopathologically confirmed cases of carcinoma breast. The tumor type, grade, LNM, LVE were reported on H & E. The ER-PR study was done of all 50 cases. The tumor size, grade, NM, LVE were correlated with receptor status.
Observation: Out of 50 cases majority (7.5%) of cases were in 41-50 years of age group, and tumor size was between 2-4 cm in (17.5%) cases; majority were of grade II carcinoma (17.5%) of which 13% were ER-PR positive. Out of 35 cases with negative LNM and LVE, 26 cases (13%) were ER-PR positive.
Conclusion: In our observation there is no association between higher histological grade and ER-PR status. No obvious correlation with tumor size was noted. But increase in tumor size could also be a poor predictor of ER-PR status. LNM, LVE is poor predictor of ER-PR status.
Keywords: Breast carcinoma, Estrogen and progesterone receptor.
