Gene profiling..: For FLUS diagnoses, the current recommendation is to perform molecular analysis of cells removed at the time of FNA; there are two tests, Afirma by Veracyte, and the other test by Asuragen. These are expensive tests, make sure the insurance company covers it. Some endocrinologists do only one or the other test. Please check with your endo.
