What is a thyroid biopsy?
A biopsy is a procedure performed by taking a small tissue sample from
the thyroid gland and examining it under a microscope for any signs of
infection, cancer, or indication of other thyroid problems. A biopsy is
often performed to find the cause of goiter or nodules and masses in the
Biopsies can be performed with a fine-needle, which is placed into the
thyroid gland through the skin or can be done as open biopsies, which
is when a doctor makes an incision to examine the thyroid gland.
