    Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy (Thyroid)

    Hi everyone. I'm booked into the local city hospital tomorrow to have a fine needle biopsy of my thyroid gland, where a recent ultrasound scan showed that I have a small lump (nodule); my ENT consultant said it probably wasn't malignant but he wanted to make sure.

    I'm getting a bit nervous frankly. Has anyone had this done, and if so, how did it go?

    Thanks in advance,

    Graham .

    Hi graham
    I have had one done and I took a diazepam about 1 hour prior to the procedure, I have 3 nodules which I get checked every 6 months they are fine,also have had 2 parathyroids removed which were ok too.
    All I felt was a pulling feeling.You will be ok all the best.

    Hi graham i had this done about 20 years ago as i also had a nodule on my thyroid gland. As i recall they put a numbing cream on the area & then drew some fluid of, just felt a bit strange then & for a while after but other than that no effects. It did result in me having the nodule removed as it was attached to one half of the thyroid gland, but it hasn’t affected me at all since. Hope all goes well for & let us know how you get on. Take care.

    Thanks for your support Lola and Redsmum, and glad to see that things worked out well for you in the end. I got through it OK (thanks to a great nurse who engaged me in conversation and took my mind off it) and am recovering from it now.

    Best wishes and stay safe,

    Graham .

    Hi graham so pleased to hear you got through it all ok, sometimes all the stress we put ourselves through thinking about it is worse than the actual procedure. When will you get your results? Take care.

    Don't be alarmed by the neck bruising post-FNA, Graham. I hope you don't have to wait too long for the results.
