Non-Cervical Cytology Header Image

Non-Gynaecological cytology is the diagnostic service that examines dispersed cells such as those, which may be found in body fluids or obtained by aspirating cells from lumps (non-gynaecological cytology).

The non-gynaecological cytology service receives approximately 3,500 cases per year and many different types of specimens are tested including bronchoalveolar lavage, bronchial washings, bronchial brushings, sputum, ascitic fluid, peritoneal fluid, cyst fluid, pericardial fluid, pleural fluid, urine, nipple discharge and fine needle aspirations (FNA) from sites such as breast, head and neck and thyroid.

For a comprehensive list of the tests we offer, or for more information, please refer to the relevant Laboratory Handbook.
