Re: So confused. And scared FNA biopsy report

it's probably NOT cancer, but it will need to be removed, simply because of the presence of Hurthle Cells. That's what happened to me. When there are hurthle cells, they can't tell if it's malignant or benign until they take it out and slice it up and send it to pathology. I'd bet that yours is benign, especially because there is more than one. get the book Thyroid for dummies, it is a great book, and explains a lot.
don't worry, whatever you do. even if it WAS cancer, thyroid cancer is one of the most curable ones out there......please don't sweat this.....
