    Is FNA biopsy painful?

    My doctor recommended a Fine Needle Biopsy of my Thyroid based on the Ultrasound scan report:

    There is a 1.4 x 1.7 x 2.3 cm solid essentially isoechoic mass in the medial aspect of the midportion of the left lobe. Tiny calcifications are present, minimal increased vascularity. This is in the T4 category.

    ISTHMUS
    THICKNESS: 0.3 cm


    Is this serious?
    Would FNA biopsy be painful?
