A study of a single cell or a cluster of cells for the diagnosis of any disease is known as cytology or cytopathology. Cytology Lab Test plays an important role in the analysis of any kind of cancer.
Reasons to consider cytology over tissue biopsy are:
Less discomforting to the patient
Costs way less than a biopsy
It is easier to get done
It hardly has any complications
