Thyroid Biopsy


During a fine needle aspiration biopsy of the thyroid, a small sample of tissue is removed from the thyroid gland for further testing. The thyroid gland is located in front of the neck just above the neckline and is shaped like a butterfly, with two lobes on either side of the neck connected by a narrow band of tissue.
