BIOPSY OF THE THYROID (FNA)

Despite little size, the thyroid gland plays vital role in functionality all of human body’s systems, being responsible for metabolic processes occuring in it. If any changes occur in thyroid, it will affect the work of many other organs, which may efficiently decrease the quality of life due to many disturbances that will follow. One of the most frequent disease is the formation of thyroid nodes. Usually they are benign, but malignant transformations bring to cancer in some occasions.

Due to capabilities of modern medicine, the most optimal method of biopsy is thin needle aspiration biopsy. The decision concerning the biopsy is made by endocrinologist, family doctor or surgeon-endocrinologist. The aim is to answer the question: Is the node, revealed in ultrasound, malignant or benign.

Patient, trusting his doctor and the means prescribed by him, following his requirements, can restore health even in case of serious illness. People immersed in the abyss of ignorance, disregarding the advice of a doctor, stand defenceless even when facing mild illnesses.
