Aim: The breast tissue in women shows continuous change from birth with the hormonal effect, and various symptoms occur accordingly. Breast diseas-es are among the most common diseases seen in women and their incidence is continuously increasing. Material and Method: The records of patients aged 18 to 75 who were consulted to Ahi Evran University Training and Re-search Hospital General Surgery Clinic between October 2014-January 2016 and who were pathologically diagnosed with primary breast disease were retrospectively examined. Clinical information was analyzed with SPSS 19. Results: The most common patient complaint was breast pain (43 patients). The most commonly encountered benign pathology was fibroadenoma (24 patients). Inflammatory diseases were encountered in 12 patients. 26 pa-tients were diagnosed with malignant breast lesions.

Malign breast diseases formed the second most commonly diagnosed group, with a rate of 27.6%. Inflamma-tory breast diseases formed the third most commonly diagnosed group, with a rate of 12.7%.
