  • Wysewoman, thanks for posting the links. My FNA was inconclusive. Histology was positive for St.2 Hurthle cell carcinoma. If the FNA can't determine whether cells are benign or cancerous how can it be determined whether cancers are papillary, follicular, tall cell or Hurthle? I'd like to see FNA accuracy improved before small papillary cancers are redesignated.

    I hope you're feeling well and recovering.
