Aspiration biopsy Cytology was performed in 95 patients with prostatic nodules detected on rectal examination. A simplified technique was used, dispensing with the need for any specialised instruments. The cytological diagnosis was compared with the histological diagnosis of tissue obtained either by core biopsy or at operation. The sensitivity and specificity of aspiration cytology was found to be 92.7 percent and 95.5 percent respectively. The predictive value of a positive cytological result was 95.0 percent. It was found to be a simple and safe procedure. Yielding a quick diagnosis and was without significant complications.
