Material and methods: Nineteen patients attending Surgical O.P.D. of a tertiary hospital were included in the study. Statistical Analysis: Expressed in simple terms of proportion. Findings: 84.21 and 94.73 percent were the accuracy rate of FNAC and Imprint cytodiagnosis respectively. There were 10.52 and 5.26 percent false negative and 5.2 and zero percent false positive rates were recorded through FNAC and Imprint cytodiagnosis respectively.
