To study the FNAC and histopathological pattern of thyroid swelling, prevalence of thyroid malignancy, mode of treatment and associated surgical complications. A total of 100 patients of thyroid swelling were evaluated by FNAC preoperatively and histopathologically after surgery. Reports of FNAC and histopathology were similar in 73% patients while dissimilar in 27%. Among benign tumors diffuse colloid goiter was the most common presentation. Thyroid disease is endemic and colloid goiter is the most common presentation. FNAC is useful in preoperative planning but final diagnosis should be based upon histopathology.
