Assessment of Pain Score and Specimen Adequacy for Ultrasound-Guided Fine-Needle Aspiration Biopsy of Thyroid Nodules

from Journal of Pain Research

The aim of this study was to evaluate pain scores and specimen adequacy for ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy of thyroid nodules without and with local anesthesia. Ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy is a safe procedure, and most patients report no pain five minutes after the procedure. The use of local anesthesia was associated with lower immediate pain scales and higher specimen adequacy. more
