FNA results...your opinions????please

The results sound good to me, I haven't talked to the doctor yet though. I just am reading the results from the pathology report I picked up from medical records.

First sample- no intact cellular material-non-diagnostic.

Second sample- scant acute inflammmatory cells and proteinaceous debris. No definite thyroid epithelial elements identified. Cell block preparation virtually acellular.

3rd and 4th- abundant peripheral blood. Scattered aggregates of thyroid follicular epithelium. No cytolic features of papillary thyroid carcinoma identified. Many of the slides domonstrate background of colloid. Consistent with a benign colloid nodule.

Gosh what a relief! One question I have though, when they say no evidence of papillary carcinoma- does that mean they only tested for papillary- or is that just their way of saying NO carcinoma of any kind. These ARE good results-right? It says consistent with benign.....that means they are 100% sure right?

Sorry if I still sound doubtful- I just don't want my hopes to get up too high thinking everythings okay, I did that with my liver disease. The nurse told me doctor lingo, and I was extatic thinking I was fine- then was hit hard when the doctor told me what it all meant. So, if you can let me know your opinions, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks ahead,
ladyshy
