Hashi diagnosis and FNA?

I thought I had read somewhere on here that you can be diagnosed for Hashi through a FNA.

If that is true..do they automatically test for Hashi, is it something that just shows up? Do I have to ask them to test for Hashi?

I had a FNA today and was wondering. Doctors around here seem to look at me like I am from Mars when I mention that Hashi runs in my family...and when I have mentioned Antibody testing my GP says they don't mean anything so why test them.

Thanks again you all are so helpful

Re: Hashi diagnosis and FNA?

I've never had a biopsy myself; but I've read several reports here that the diagnostician will note on the report the appearance of the cells, which have distinct changes after having been damaged by the antibodies. Whether that diagnostician always understands what he/she is seeing and calls it "Hashimoto's" on the report ... who knows?
