Anyone have experience with the affirma thyroid fna biopsy?

Thyroid. Used if thyroid biopsy shows a follicular lesion. The affirma assay is a molecular classifier test that shows if that nodule us benign early use show promising results. Expensive test that few insurance companies will pay for.
More info needed. We don't use it. It is heavily promoted by the company, but not well validated. Theoretically, different genes are expressed by the malignant nodules, but the company does not say what those are. There is a lot of decision-making around thyroid nodules. The test is not a substitute for a good endocrinologist and surgeon. If fna is equivocal, you can watch the nodule and not rush to surgery.
