Back ground: Cancer accounted for 5 lakh death in India alone in 2005 .More than two thirds of all cancer deaths occur in low and middle income countries. Objective: To assess the techniques of fine needle aspiration cytology and Imprint cytodiagnosis in thyroid cancers. Study designs: four patients of thyroid lumps, attending O.P.D. of Hamidia, hospital, Bhopal were selected for the study. Convenient sampling was done .Patient’s detailed history, routine and special investigations as per need were carried out. Statistical analysis: The analysis of data was done with the help of manual tabulation and for calculation of percentages. Results: FNAC-The accuracy rate was 75 percent while in imprint cytodiagnosis an 100 percent accuracy rate was noticed. Conclusion: The authors reached to the conclusion that F.N.A.C. save time, resources and patient anxiety. Admission for operation can be properly timed and the chances of missing thyroid cancers are much reduced. As there is paucity of data of imprint cytodiagnosis and in the present study too the sample was small so more study is to be done for getting comprehensive picture of the disease.
