Rapid methods of diagnosis were employed in 104 cases of breast lumps and the results of each method were compared with those of paraffin sections. With Fine needle aspiration cytology, accuracy of diagnosis was achieved in 92.3% cases. Imprint cytodiagnosis established the correct diagnosis is 89.1% of the cases. No false positive diagnosis was made with either of these techniques. Frozen sections correctly distinguished between benign and malignant lesions in 100% cases. The use of both the cytological techniques in diagnosis of breast tumours has been compared and discussed.
