Fine-needle aspiration biopsy is a technique that is gaining great popularity in both surgical and nonsurgical specialties. Its accuracy, safety, and usefulness have been demonstrated repeatedly; however, its usefulness seems to have been overlooked by oral and maxillofacial surgeons. This technique has many advantages in the diagnosis of mass lesions, including ease of use, cost effectiveness, convenience, and accuracy. It lends itself well to oral and maxillofacial surgery.
