ABSTRACT
Introduction: Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is one of the main procedure used in the primary diagnosis of Thyroid Swelling. FNAC result affects the treatment and reduces the unnecessary surgical procedures. The purpose of this study is to establish a Cyto-Histological correlation and to evaluate sensitivity and specificity of FNAC of Thyroid lesions.
Material and Methods: It is a three year Prospective Study in which 250 FNA were taken and out of which 75 underwent surgery, Cyto-Histological correlation was done.
Results: Majority of cases were non neoplastic and there was female predominance. Cyto-Histological correlation was done and overall Sensitivity was 94.7%.
Conclusion: FNAC helps in avoiding unnecessary thyroid surgeries for benign lesions.
