Abstract: Objective: This study aims to quantitatively compare results related to the accuracy of radiological modalities, FNACs, and histology findings during treatment among patients complaining of neck lumps. This is done to determine the accuracy and specificity of each investigation by classifying the results into two categories: benign and malignant lumps. Methods: Retrospective data were collected fr a random selection of records collected from 77 patients at King Hussein Medical Center (KHMC) and Queen Alia Military Hospital (QAMH) in Jordan who were placed under the care of Jordanian Royal Medical Services. These patients complained of neck lumps, and their FNA, radiological imaging, and histology results were compared. Results: The comparison showed that the FNA results were more accurate than radiological modalities. Conclusion: Because of the critical roles of radiology modalities and FNAC during the diagnosis and treatment of patients with neck lumps, expert physicians must be involved in this process to increase the accuracy of radiology investigations.
