Abstract :

 

Background–

 A very rapid tentative diagnosis can be done by FNAC with a cost effective and fairly accurate with excellent patient acceptance without any morbidity and mortality. Hence a quick treatment plan can be achieved without even biopsy in most of the cases.

 

Aim of the Study– 

To evaluate the accuracy % of FNAC as a diagnostic tool in the east lumps after correlating it to the histopathological diagnosises.

.

Material & Methods–

The present study was conducted in the histopathology department of the central laboratory FHMC hospital between September 2017 to September 2018. During this period 191 cases of east lumps were evaluated by FNAC and 103 cases were subjected to histopathology correlation.

 

Result

 FNAC of 103 benign and 38 malignant cases were studied. Fioadenoma followed by fiocytic disease  were  most  common  in  benign  east  lesions  and  invasive  ductal carcinoma, NST  was  most  common among  malignant  east  lesions.  Cytohistological  correlation  was  done  in 103 cases 64  benign  and  39 malignant  of  which  one was found  to  be  false  negative.  Accuracy was 99.02%.  A detailed comparative analyses with other authors‘ study was also done.

 

Conclusion

FNAC plays a main role to provide rapid and accurate diagnosis in OPD itself so that definite management decisions can be made straightaway.  Diagnostic  errors  with  subsequent  inappropriate  clinical decisions  can  be  best  avoided  if  clinician  use  the  Triple  diagnostic  procedure  of  clinical  examination, mammography and FNAC which increase the accuracy for diagnosis of east carcinomas.
