Clinical cytology is an independent clinical discipline with important diagnostic capabilities, especially in cases where open biopsy is inadvisable or impossible due to the anatomical structure of the organ, the smallness of the pathological process, localization, risk of disease progression or other circumstances. Cytological examination involves the study of pathological processes in the body at the cellular level and the differentiation of benign and malignant processes using a microscope, which makes it possible to cure a disease at an early stage. The cytological method is a simple, painless procedure, requires little time, is less traumatic and does not cause complications.
