Cytopathology

This relates to pathological diagnosis that is based on cells. These cells may be obtained by exfoliation which may involve actively scraping cells or collecting spontaneously shed cells. In other cases, the cells are obtained during an intervention such as aspiration of a swelling located superficially or deep within the body with a needle and syringe. Superficial swellings that are commonly aspirated in our clinic include breast lumps and bumps, thyroid swellings, parotid and other salivary gland swellings. These interventional methods may be both diagnostic and therapeutic (for treatment) or just diagnostic. A unique type of cytology is the PAP smear which is for cervical cancer screening and is recommended for all reproductive age women and for post-menopausal women. We report large numbers during mass screening exercises during which we also offer attractive discounts.
