Involvement of breast by lymphoma is rare. It occurs as a primary breast tumor or as an extranodal manifestation of a systemic disease. Bilateral primary breast lymphoma (bilateral PBL) is still rarer. The most common type is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). We are reporting two cases of primary breast lymphoma (PBL), one in a 62-year-old married female and another in a 26-year-old unmarried female. Both the cases were diagnosed by aspiration cytology and confirmed by immunohistochemistry. Early diagnosis of PBL by fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) can avoid unnecessary surgical treatments.
