Thyroid cancer: Did you have a biopsy? An fna (fine needle aspirate) could be performed where a thin needle is used to collect cells from the thyroid nodule. This sample is sent to a pathologist for examination. The presence of multiple nodes is concerning and deserves further workup. Hope this helps. Papillary carcinoma is common and treatable.
