Successful cancer treatment relies on the combination of clinical findings , radiological imaging studies and pathologic evaluation. A timely and accurate diagnosis can be achieved by the use of appropriate tissue sampling techniques and competent interpretation of pathologic findings. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is the primary pre operative pathologic diagnostic tool to give
tissue diagnosis in cancer patients .

TECHNIQUE : A very small needle is inserted into the lesion to extract cells. The success of FNAC requires an excellent aspirator technique to obtain satisfactory sample.
