The fine needle aspiration biopsy of my thyroid comes back abnormal. I know I have a goiter and nodules. The nodules are what came back that way.

This is the second time I have had a fine needle aspiration biopsy. The first time I was scared to death as I had heard that it was unbearable, by someone who had it done. But they had it done in a lab, my doctor did it in his office and it was not bad at all. I went yesterday and was not scared at all. I think if you have a good specialist they know how to do it right. Just make sure you are seeing a thyroid doctor. It was a piece of cake. They stuck eight needles this time. And twelve the first time.
