What is this test?

Conventional sputum cytology can be used for the detection of lung cancer. A sputum sample is considered representative if alveolar macrophages or bronchial epithelial cells are present because this shows that the samples originate from deep within the lung. Usually, a minor part of the sputum sample is analysed cytologically for the presence of cancerous cells, and only a small proportion of cells (< 1%) are tumour cells. Sputum cytology plays a limited role in prospective lung cancer screening studies. Malignant cells were present in the lung cancer cases detected in sputum examinations, 11 squamous cell carcinomas. However, compared with x ray screening, sputum cytology was associated with a higher chance of detecting tumours at early stages.
