Background: Breast cancer is the most commonly identified dangerous cancer in females. While breast cancer has been recorded to be a source of female mortality in many developing countries, studies have shown that bronchogenic carcinoma exceeds breast cancer as the most common reason of female mortality.

Objective: This study aims at evaluating the role of (clinical examination, radiological finding and histopathological finding) in detection of breast cancer in Baquba Teaching Hospital.

Patients and Methods: This cross-sectional study recruited ambulatory patients at outpatient breast clinic unit in a Baquba Teaching Hospital from 1st of January to 31th of May 2019.

Results: This study showed that while 39 (93%) of breast cancer patients had a positive finding on clinical examination, only 3 (7%) had a negative finding. On the other hand our data showed that 35 (83%) of breast cancer patients had positive radiological findings and only 7 (17 %) of breast cancer patients had negative radiological findings. 42 (100%) of breast cancer patients have shown positive histopathological findings.
