Hi Everyone ... I just had my FNA. They took eight biopsies so hopefully I'll know something soon. I'm a tiny bit sore and have a headache but all in all okay. I'll keep you posted.

Hi Everyone. I'm new to the boards here. Not sure if this is where I should post or not.

I had an ultrasound and FNA six months ago. Everything was okay. Just had my six month follow up ultrasound and now have to go for another FNA next week.

I'm trying to understand my ultrasound results. I'll type the part that concerns me. Any insight to these would be appreciated. I'm a bit concerned with the new one as my gp seems to be as well. Thanks :)

Impression: New 2cm right isthmus nodule. Slight increase in the longest demension of the left isthmus nodule.

Right thyroid:

-Right isthmus 20 x 6 x 10 mm (NEW) well-defined margins, macrocalcifications, hypoechoic texture, oval in shape with increased vascularity.

Left thyroid:

-Left isthmus 19 x 6 x 12 mm (previously 14 x 6 x 12 mm) well-defined margines, hypoechoic texture, oval in shape with increased vascularity.

Hang in there, waiting is always the hardest part. And don't be afraid to take something like advil for the neck discomfort.
