Possible: May be if nodule has fluid ( Cyst ) may not get cells ( how many times was done ? more than twice is unusual ) . If strongly suspicious for malignancy an image guided core needle biopsy , or even removal ( surgery ) Discuss with your doctor , plan of treatment Do not ignore if necessary take second opinion .
