    Solid thyroid nodule

    Hi All,
    This is my first time on a msg board. Got a question for ANYONE out there. Had incidental findings of solid nodules with calcifications. Rec. FNA, was unable to do FNA, the needle wouldn't penetrate the nodule at all. It didn't hurt much, but ALOT of pressure trying to get needle in. ANYWAY, Dr. suggested surgery now, get it out for biopsy. Since nodules in both sides, total thyroidectomy is scheduled in a matter of 3 weeks. Has anyone had an experience like this with FNA and how did it turn out. I'd appreciate any input.
    Thanks, Jiggymo

    Jiggymo, I am so sorry that no one has responded to your post yet. Perhaps if you asked the same question on the thyroid board you would get a better response. There are a lot of knowledgeable people there would may have some answers.

    Jiggymo,
    I had my total thyroidectomy on 5/12/10 & really feeling great. I was in the hospital overnight. My thyroids functions were good, but I solid nodules on my left side & a large cyst on my right side. I had FNA & it came back benign, then I had the large cyst drained 2 times, but it kept filling back up. My dr. said that the cyst was so large with small pockets that there was no way to biospy each pocket & the only way to be 100% sure that it's benign would be to have surgery. So that's why i had the surgery and thank god they were all benign. I'm feeling great so far.
