Background: More than two thirds of all cancer deaths occur in low and middle income countries. It is estimated that there are 1.5 -2 million cases at any given point in time.
Objective: Early and accurate diagnosis of cancer patients.
Material and methods: Eighteen cases after clinical diagnosis were subjected to FNAC and Imprint cytodiagnosis by perineal route and needle with stylus and Histology.
Findings: The accuracy rate of both FNAC and Imprint cytodiagnosis was 100 %. There were no false results.
Conclusion: A very important benefit of FNAC and Imprint cytology in prostatic diseases is reduction of time interval between needle biopsy of prostate and surgery i.e. surgery can be performed after one hour of biopsy.
