Abstract

Our data suggest that FNB results in statistically significant but clinically insignificant increases in Tg, anti-Tg and FT3 levels, implying a thyroid trauma of some level, more likely to happen in patients with larger nodules. The FNB technique used has no effect on the thyroid-related biochemical parameters.
