Background Estrogen receptors (ER), Progesterone receptors (PR) expression is seen in non cancer breast lesions like juvenile fibroadenomas and phyllodes tumor.

Materials and Methods This is a prospective study on a study population that comprised fibroadenomas and phyllodes tumor.

Results While a few studies indicate that ER/PR expression correlates with a more benign outcome ,we did not see the same in our population. Ki 67 proliferation was greater in the stromal component of phyllodes tumours,compared to fibroadenomas.

Keywords: Fibroadenoma; Phyllodes tumour; Estrogen; Progesterone receptors; Ki67
