I've had loads of FNA and they really dont hurt one good thing is they can usually give you some idea of results immediately.Good luck Val
I had a FNAC twice on lymph nodes when I had to have core biopsies done twice. I didn't find it painful at all and I don't think it was because they had given me a local for the core biopsy because they were a distance from my lymph nodes. They just put a thin needle in and take off some fluid.
Hope this helps.
FNAC what is it? hi.
hello to everyone, im a newbie to the forum. have been on for a few weeks viewing posts which have been very encouraging for me. reason being that at the slightest sign of a lumpy thing, we all fear the worst(myself included) this may not be the case.
i am asking for anyone that can tell me what happens and if/how painfull a FNAC (Fine needle aspiration cytology) is?
sorry if this is in the wrong section.
