    Introduction: The breast cancer diagnosis and treatment is based on a less invasive, more accurate and effective strategybut the key factor in respect of these new standards is to confirm cancer before going to the operating room. Closedbiopsies by means of Tru-cut biopsy needle have replaced the more traditional incisional or excisional biopsies for the diagnosis of palpable breast lumps and have a definite role in the histological diagnosis of majority of palpable breastlumps. These biopsies can be performed under local anesthesia in the office or in outpatient setup. The technique is reliable,simple, and reproducible, and inexpensive; it can be adapted even for low-income developing countries. Objective:This study is designed mainly to compare the diagnostic accuracy of Tru-cut needle biopsy with that of excision biopsy.Materials and Methods: The original study is carried from July to December 2014 in Surgical Unit-1, Baqai Medical University Hospital Karachi, Pakistan. Among women with palpable breast lumps came to the outpatient, 140 patientsselected and Tru-cut needle biopsy along with excision biopsy was performed and the result of both the modalities recorded
    and compared with each other. Results: The diagnosis given by Tru-cut needle biopsy is confirmed by means of excision biopsies. Therefore, it may be said that out of 49 malignant lumps 45 (91.83%) and out of 91 benign lumps 87 (95.60%)are correctly diagnosed with a total of 132 (94.28%) correct diagnosis. Conclusion: As the diagnostic accuracy of closed biopsies is considerable and very close to that of excision biopsies, the closed biopsies can be performed routinely on anoutpatient basis on women with palpable breast lumps.
