Most common presentation was lump in the breast with tumor size >5cm (64%).62% of patients were in the stage III when they presented to the hospital. Majority of patients were diagnosed as infiltrating ductal carcinoma on FNAC and histology. All patients underwent modified radical mastectomy (MRM) and postoperatively patients received Chemotherapy (CT) and Hormonal therapy (HT).
