I have been having trouble with my thyroid (swelling, pain, hard to swallow) so I was sent for blood work and an ultrasound. I have two nodules on my thyroid, one not so big the other is, so I am scheduled to have a ultrasound biopsy on the 20th. Has anyone else had these and had a biopsy done? Just how painful is it going to be (I'm a big baby), she told me they would give me shots to numb the area before they did the biopsy and that it "wasn't THAT bad". What should I expect?

Hi BettyC, I am so sorry your having to go through this. I have Hypo Thyroidism but do not have nodules. I hope some of the others here can help you out. I'm sure they will try to make this procedure as comfortable as possible for you. Good Luck.
