Recently posted on here about my sister. She was told she had a mass 2.5cm on thyroid and that they were doing FNA to rule out the obvious, although there was no evidence of any vascular activity but it had some 'unusal properties'.
Ok, to begin with, she had a FNA and then told it had to be repeated due to not enough cells collected. She went back 2nd time.
Today she received a letter saying that the results were inconclusive and therefore has to return on 28th December for a THIRD FNA! Wow. Is this common procedure??
Also, she has been told that actually the mass is 28x40mm... Is this big? Or normal.
Now that they have told her the size she has freaked out a bit (understandably)... She won't even touch her neck
I know no one can say what it is, I know 95% are benign... But is size indicative? Also it seems to be non round? Significance?
