Ask doctor: The report you read appears to be from a pathology report from a biopsyit is not clear the specimen source or what was the conclusion in this report a conversation with your doctor might get an answer.

Based on what I see I suspect this is a thyroid specimen. The concerning cytologic detail is the nuclear grooves. More information needed.

Path report: Obviously, your doctor should be explaining this to you, in the full context and knowledge of your recent history that prompted this tissue evaluation. There is no mention of malignant characteristics or anything significantly abnormal on this brief outtake from the full report. Best wishes.
