Hi guys, new here but seems to be the best place from which i can find an honest advice. Have a suspicious nodule on ly left side of the thy (suspicious for follicular neoplasm). Had 4 fnab and core biopsy, but they all came back as inconclusive due to poor amount of cells,making impossible to give a secure diagnosis. Now they want to perform a hemythyroidectomy as the last choice to rule out cancer (hopefully). To me this seems to be very drastic but i do not want to carry on going back and forth to the hospital for fnab and obtain nothing afterwards. Also, if it is indeed a follicular neoplasm,apparently a fnab is pretty useless! So why did i have to have it done 4 times???? Not sure what to do and feel afraid of possible long term problems following the op.... Any advice? Thank you
