Thyroid biopsy



Today I had a consultation with an Endocrinologist. She did an ultrasound in her office and said that my nodule was just over 1cm and that makes it a candidate for biopsy. She asked if I wanted the biopsy right now since I was here and I said, well, why not, might as well. She wasn't able to numb me and the nodule is located in the isthmus. The biopsy was pretty painful but not as painful as the aftermath. I am having a hard time moving my head around. And trying to look up feels like a knife is being stuck in my throat. But I should have the results in about a week. The waiting period is the worst.
