Assessment of cervical neck lesions with contribution of fine needle aspiration cytology: a retrospective study in western Uttar Pradesh region
Introduction: Cervical masses have probable spectrum of nonspecific inflammation to malignancy and tuberculosis. The object of the present study was to assess a number of cervical neck mass with the role of FNAC to diagnose these lesions.
Materials and Methods: The characteristics were noted on pre-outlined questionnaire as regarding local investigation findings, laboratory and history of cases and patients’ personal details. Analysis of every case was depending upon cyto-morphology and clinical evaluation as cytological findings.
Results: Out of 520 patients there were 254 (48.84% male and 266 were female cases. Thyroid lesions were found excessive in female (85.91%) compare to male (14%). Occurrence of lymph node was found 56.12% in male cases and 43.87% in female cases, which were slightly more in male patients. The prevalence of salivary gland lesion was found more in male (55%) compare to female (45%).
Conclusion: FNAC is useful investigation in diagnosis of cervical masses.
