Thyroid Biopsy

So after my doctor ordered a ultrasound of the thyroid, it came back that I had 3 nodules and 1 suspicious goiter.  He ordered a fine needle aspiration biopsy.   I was a little nervous but it really wasn't that bad and it only took a few minutes.  They numbed me up and I just could not cough or swallow while the doctor was administering the procedure.  Easy Pezzy!  Just a little sting and they cleaned me up and put a tiny band aid on it and I was out the door!  Finally got the results a few days ago and it was negative!! Thank you Jesus!
