In brief: Follicular lesions

FNA cannot differentiate between benign and malignant follicular lesions.
Evidence of capsular or lymph/vascular invasion are necessary to diagnose follicular carcinoma. FNA can help determine if surgery is needed to further classify a lesion, or if a "wait and watch" approach is warranted. For definitive diagnosis, the nodule has to be removed and examined by a pathologist. Hope this helps!
