    Background: Thyroid nodules are very commonly encountered in clinical practice and there exists a need to effectively diagnose malignancy. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) plays an important role in the initial evaluation of these patients. However, reports of FNAC samples are limited by subjective error, reporter bias, inter-observer variability, and terminology confusion. The Bethesda System of Reporting of Thyroid Cytology (BSRTC) was developed in 2007 as consensus recommendations to overcome these limitations. Six diagnostic Categories were formed which provided the information regarding the risk of malignancy in each.
