Hi, What does 'partial positive' mean? in regards to FNA biopsy?


I was told my last ultrascan and FNA biopsy results were ok by ENT a while back but needed another ultrascan.

but i went for the 2nd US where they told me i had to have another 2 FNA's because my last biopsy came back as a partial positive!

So what does partial positive mean? need honest answers please.

BTW my thyroid function is normal.

Anyone know the answer please???


Hi, just push to get these done. I had a FNA and they thought it was fine, but when I had to have lobectomy done biopsy showed early cell changes. I hope you are ok.
