Breast cancer is really one from tumor with highest mortality in this country as well as in the word. For early detection of the loco-regional breast cancer and disease confirmation, many diagnostic procedures were recommended with aims to help in decision for surgery treatment. This comparative study reported data by clinical analyses, ultrasonography, mammography and histological findings obtained after ex tempore biopsy, in 59 women with breast cancer aged from 16 to 69. The highest incidence of cancer was obtained in women over 61 years of age, although high rate of breast cancer was found in aging between 21 to 50 years. The fibroadenoma were founded in 40.68%, while malignant carcinoma ductale in 13.55% of all cases. Correlation between applied analyses for fibroadenoma was found in 86.05% cases, while in malignant lesions this percentage was highest (93.33%). Apart of these methods applied for early diagnosis in general hospital and obtained statistical significance in diagnosis, new techniques based on molecular level (hormone receptor status) must be used.
