The aim of this study was to assess the usefulness of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) as a diagnostic method in lung tumour as well as to determine the incidence of lung cancer in various age and sex group and in relation with smoking. Hundred cases of lung tumours were investigated. Out of 100 patients, 88 were male and 12 were female. The age of patients varies from 23-78 years most of the patient were in the age group of 50-70 years. The most common tumour was squamous cell carcinoma (45%) followed by adenocarcinoma (22%), small cell carcinoma (16%) and large cell carcinoma (8%). Eighty out of 100 patient had history of smoking. Diagnostic accuracy of cytology with final histopathological report was established with accuracy rate of 95%.
