The biopsies specimens and the nodes had been histological analyzed and classified neoplasm according to World Health Organization (WHO). The core needle biopsy showed sensitivity of 100% and specificity of 71.4% in the diagnosis of adenocarcinomas and in the diagnosis of carcinosarcomas, the 71.4% of sensitivity and 100% of specificity. And according to Goodman and Kruskall (P<0.0001) test presented diagnostic effectiveness of 81.6%.
