Fine Needle Aspiration
A technique where a lesion is entered by a small needle and a cellular sample is retrieved by suction (aspiration). The sample can then be reviewed by cytology or other means. FNA is a simple and reliable cytologic test which may be used in evaluation of palpable masses. An aspirate sample is smeared on a slide, stained, and reviewed by the pathologist. In many instances, an immediate diagnosis can be rendered, saving the patient a costly and time-consuming surgical biopsy.
