Goiters

Should a thyroid be taken out only because someone could not get any useful material on a thyroid biopsy?
I have had three needle biopsies and they only missed because the goiter or nodule was too close to the cartoid artery.

My friend had the same situation where they could get enough cells to biopsy.  Her doctor recommended removal, (she only had half a thyroid) and she had done, biopsy result all normal, she is on medication and doing very well....wish you luck!
