Fine needle biopsy (FNB) plays a crucial role in the diagnosis of pediatric tumors due to its minimally invasive nature and high diagnostic accuracy. FNB involves using a thin needle to extract tissue samples from suspicious lesions for pathological examination. In pediatric oncology, FNB offers several advantages including the ability to obtain samples from difficult-to-access areas and to guide treatment decisions with minimal risk to the child. Additionally, FNB can provide rapid results, aiding in timely diagnosis and treatment planning. Despite its benefits, careful consideration of patient age, lesion characteristics, and expertise in interpretation is essential to ensure optimal outcomes when employing FNB in the diagnosis of pediatric tumors
