  • My sister had this done, they go in with a needle and you will feel some discomfort. They will then take a piece of tissue and biopsy it. Then they will tell you what should be done. It would be a good idea if somebody goes with you. I will be thinking of you, have a good night."HUGS"

  • I think they use a fine needle and ultrasound. I have never had this done. have you called and asked the dr or nurse?

    Good Luck

  • I had half of my thyroid removed & the biopsy was done at that time while I was in surgery.
