This is benign - you have hashimotos -- assuming you have positive thyroid antibodies, the FNA is typical of HASHI.

I had my thyroid removed due to Follicular Cancer.  I know it had something to do with Follicular Cells.  I would check into this a little deeper.

I had a biopsy come back atypical. I decided to have a thyroidectomy due to family history of thyroid cancer and patholgy came back as hurtle cells. It was worth having it out, so now I do not have to worry about cancer...I had Hashimotos aswell
