An analysis of FNAC in recent 6 years was made to evaluate its clinical significance. The results of 594 specimens, from which pathologic abnormalities can be established, are statistically analysed using international standard for accuracy. In 594 specimens, 383 malignant breast tumors were diagnosed, with a false negative result of 9. 5 %, The diagnostic accuracy is 90. 5 %. In other specimens, benign breast diseases were diagnosed in 211, with a faies positive of 0.48%, the diagnostic accuracy is 99. 5 %. We conclude that examination used in breast tumors is a technique of highly accurate and has considerable clinical practicality.
