Hey all, I am a recent survivor of breast cancer. Yay!That's over. That was REALLY hard. Anyway, I have a thyroid nodule that has grown and developed a couple of extra small ones since the last scan. My oncologist is sending me to a specialist to have it checked. She says he'll do a fine needle aspiration. I looked that up. It says they insert a very small needle into the nodule, "rock" it back and forth to insure a good tissue sample then do it AGAIN four or five more times! And they don't use anesthesia!! What?! Has anyone had this? If so, how was it? Thanks much for sharing.
