Lesion on thyroid

I have a couple of questions:  I have an "unidentified lesion" on my thyroid.  I have had an ultrasound FNA but they were unable to get any cells even after 7 attempts.  The shape of the mass is long and skinny - maybe about 1.5 cm long and thin.  I also have a lump on the side of my neck which my ENT says is an enlarged lymph node.  So I recognize that this has some possible characteristics of a malignant mass.  Today I had my thyroid scan with uptake and this afternoon I received the report that said "normal thyroid with no hot or cold nodules".  How can this be?  I'm not sure why this nodule or mass would not show up on this scan.  My ENT who is a surgeon will probably repeat the FNA on Monday but I wanted to figure out if this is a common occurrence.  Any ideas or similar experiences?

Did your dr test you for Hashimoto's Autoimmune Thyroid Disease? This can cause nodules, enlarged lymph nodes, inflammation, pain, etc....etc....etc.
Let's hope your ENT can get a good sample.  :)
