Hi I am sorry I don't have knowledge of this exact test,,,, I did have to have a needle biopsy of a nodule in my thyroid gland, and I can tell you what that was like,,,,, it too is in the neck only rather deep inside.
They gave me a couple of shots to numb the area, these shots were like bee stings,,, just uncomfortable. They then stuck needles in one at a time (9 all together) and drew out samples. The samples they took were painless. All I felt was pressure. It did take place at a teaching hospital and when the tech allowed a student to do one it was a little ridiculous,,,,,she couldn't get the needle to the right spot and the tech kept saying things like " stay away from that its a vein" etc.... but it really wasn't very painfull at all. The stress made me feel very tired for a few days and I did have some bruising. Hope this hleps, good luck
