Methodology: This present cross-sectional study included the patients presented with palpable head & neck swelling from January 2018 to September 2019 in outpatient (mostly ENT & HNS OPD) department of Monno Medical College & Hospital, Monno City, Gilondo, Manikgonj. Aspirates were done using mostly 5ml syringe and 23-gauge needle. Smears were stained with Papanicolaou stain.

Results: Out of 210 patients of head & neck lesions studied, Lymph node (50.47%) was the predominant site aspirated with chronic nonspecific lymphadenitis & lymphoid hyperplasia being the commonest lesion. Thyroid lesions constituted 31.90% cases followed by soft tissue (11.9%) and salivary gland (5.71%).
