Background: Cancer is the second most common disease after cardiovascular disorders for maximum
deaths in the world. The present research was undertaken to study the histopathological spectrum of
neoplastic lesions in Rural Tertiary Care Hospital in Maharashtra.
Materials and Methods: This retrospective study was carried out in the Department of Pathology at
Shri Vasantrao Naik Government Medical College (VNGMC) Yavatmal, Maharashtra during October
2016 to November 2018. A detail history, diagnosis, primary site, morphology of neoplastic lesions and
histopathological examination of all the specimens were done.
Results: Out of 3608 specimens examined, 724 cases had neoplastic lesions of which 499 cases were
benign and 225 cases were malignant. The most commonly reported malignant tumors were those of oral
cavity (47), breast (44), and gastrointestinal tract (22). Most commonly reported benign tumors in females
were female genital tract lesions which constituted 170 cases followed by benign breast lesion (126) while
in males, out of 123 cases, lipoma was diagnosed in 30 cases, followed by prostate hyperplasia (28) and
other soft tissue tumor (28).
Conclusions: In both the gender oral malignancies were commonest, while in males’ gastrointestinal
tract malignancies and in females’ carcinoma of breast were the most frequent malignancies after oral
malignancies. Commonest benign lesions in males were lipoma and while in female lesions of genital tract
and breast were common.
