Post Anyone had a Fine Needle Aspiration biopsy of a lymph node?

Hello again! Hoping to hear some experiences of people who have had a needle biopsy of a lymph node. I have had very hard swollen submandular (sp?) Nodes just under my jaw bone for about two and a half months. I was referred to an ent who, after looking with a camera down my throat and finding no infection there or in my ears, as well as learning of my other symptoms of nightsweats, fatigue, etc, decided to put me on keflex to see if the nodes will go down. I have already been through a treatment of arythromycin with the nodes just getting larger. If in ten days the swelling does not go down ill be scheduled for an ultrasound and fine needle biopsy of these nodes.

Notttt a buddy to needles. Ill do what's necessary, and I'm just preparing myself for probably having the biopsy. Has anyone had it? Any anesthesia? Pain? How long did it take to get results? Btw I'm a 23 y/o female.
Thank you in advance!
