Mass in throat

This is the 2nd ultra sound & the mass is solid. What is an FNA? Is this a pretty successful surgery?


This discussion is related to solid mass cancer?.

FNA is not surgery - it is a biopsy of the mass to see whether you have cancer or not. It is only a test.

The full word for FNA is Fine Needle Aspiration

Where is the mass located .. in your thyroid or elsewhere?
