The number of cancer deaths worldwide has been considered to be about 4 million each year. An estimated 12.66 million people were diagnosed with cancer across the world in 2008, and 7.56 million people died from the disease. During the past century, cancer has emerged as the most challenging problems for public health systems in medium- and low-resource countries. Aim of the study: To assess the pathological findings of the patients with malignant tumor. Material & Methods: This is a cross sectional study conducted at the Department of Pathology, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Dhaka, Bangladesh from October 2011 to September 2012. All tumor cases diagnosed by histopathology or cytopathology in the department of Pathology, BSMMU were enrolled in this study. The materials for diagnoses were biopsy specimens, surgical resection/excised specimens, and cytology specimens. All tumor reports were stored in computer data base and would be retrieved according to need. Information was collected from the patients or close relatives of the patients. Personal identification data and tumor related information including ICD-O3 and ICD 10 were collected and recorded systematically in a data abstraction sheet. Tumor identification part was filled up by a resident doctor. All precautions were maintained to avoid multiple counts of same patient. These data were entered in to software by using Microsoft access. Basic frequency distribution and proportion of data were presented in tables, figures and diagrams. Statistical analyses of the results will be obtained by using window based computer software devised with Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS-15). Results: Among 3657 cases, 2559 were malignant (69.98%), 1098 (30.02%0) were benign. Among malignant tumors, 11 (0.43%) cases were of low malignant potential, 17 (0.66%) were.......
