September 10, 2021 Medicine and Medical Research 0

Background and Objectives: The purpose of this study was to investigate the spectrum of disease using aspiration cytology and to assess its diagnostic value in the Garhwal people of Uttarakhand with palpable head and neck lesions.

Materials and Procedures: 796 patients with palpable head and neck masses were studied retrospectively. A 23-24 G needle was used for the FNAC procedure. Giemsa, Pap smear, and specific stains were used to stain the smears.

The most prevalent clinical manifestation was cervical lymphadenopathy (67.8%), and the most common lesion was reactive lymphoid hyperplasia (33.3%). In the majority of patients with cancer, metastatic carcinoma in the cervical lymph node was found in 58.57 percent of cases. For rapid diagnosis, FNAC has proven to be a quick, cost-effective, and reliable method.
