Dr Chada Pradeep Kumar, Dr Toshniwal Hanuman Prasad

Abstract :

 Thyroid gland enlargement is a common presentation in the general population and in the FNAC OPD, but all thyroid enlargements do not require surgery. the aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of FNAC in thyroid disease in picking up malignant and benign lesions. Among 65 patients, fifteen cases were male (23.07% ) and fifty cases were female (76.92%). The FNAC is very useful and readily available tool for evaluating thyroid nodules with high sensitivity and specificity in picking up benign lesion and excluding the malignant disease. This is very helpful in patient counselling and defining the extent of surgery.
