I just had my the result of FNA..It's benign degenrating colloid with cyst formation.
Can you explain to me the microscopic description: Smears are paucicellu;ar and show a few small follicular cells arrange in small cohesive groups. There is no significant cellular crowding. The nuclie are small and uniform. A few siderophages are seen. There is moderate to abundant degenerating colloid, and a few siderophaages.
Smear (examination slides prepared from sample material) has low number of cells (pauci-cellular) and show hormone producing cells (follicular cells) in groups. The nuclei are small and uniform (suggesting a normal appearance). A few immune related cells (siderophages/ macrophages) are seen with abundant colloid (secretion of the follicular cells).
Hope this is helpful.
