In brief: If doctor recommends

Thyroid nodules are very common and don't necessarily have to be biopsied, especially if small and dont have concerning ultrasound features.
The issue of which nodules to biopsy is a controversial one, best left up to your doctor. The fna of a nodule is a common procedure and done with only a tiny needle, so do not worry if you have to have this done.
