BIRADS grading system recommended by American college of radiology has been used to classify the lesions. Materials and Method: Electronic medical records of 132 womenaged between 22-75 years presenting with breast lesions during the year 2019 were reveiwed retrospectively.

Result: Mean age of women with breast cancer in our study was 46.7years.Majorityof patients diagnosed with BIRADS grade 4 and 5 fell in the age group of 41-50 years. Breast lump followed by mastalgiawere the leading indications for performing mammograms. Left breast and upper outer quadrant was found to harbor maximum number of breast lesions.
