Needle Biopsy

446 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  ROSJAC
HI, Among everything else i am dealing with, now I must have a needle biopsy done on my thyroid. An ultra-sound showed a nodule. I will have this done on March17. I have had several invasive procedures done over the years, but this one is causing me great anxiety. There is just something about having a needle placed into my neck that is bothering me. I know I am probably being silly over this one and putting more stress on myself. Has anyone else been in this situation and if so, what can I expect. Thank you for sharing, Rose

hi rose

it is a bit scarey have someone stick a needle into your throat. i've had it done a couple of times and each time i whig. but actually its not too bad. i think the anticiapation is the worsed of it. i had multiple nodules, you could actually see them on my neck...eewww :eek:.

i just held the nurses hand and layed there VERY still, i think i even held my breath so i wouldn't move..:wink2:

don't stress out too much, its sounds worse than it is.

feel better
hugs and kisses
