Abstract:

Thyroid swellings are prevalent in the Indian population and are seen in about 4-7% of them. They are common in women and their incidence increases with age, exposure to radiation and intake of goitrogens. These swellings cause cosmetic deformity and also produce pressure symptoms due to their location and size. They are viewed with suspicion as the incidence of cancer is high. FNAC of thyroid is a sensitive, easy, cost effective, and a reliable screening test for evaluating these lesions. FNAC helps in differentiating benign from malignant lesions and is very helpful in deciding surgery and follow up of these cases. In this retrospective study FNAC results of 120 thyroid lesions were analysed and correlated with histopathology findings of the excised specimens. The objective of this study is to correlate the results of FNAC and histopathology of thyroid lesions, and assess the role of FNAC in diagnosing thyroid swellings. FNAC is a safe, accurate method with high sensitivity specificity.
