Should a histology thyroid FNA report say "carcinoma" if it's cancer?

Asked by Aster (15576 points ) January 25th, 2014

If a patient’s thyroid fine needle aspiration histology report does not mention the words “metastases” OR “carcinoma” but just “suspicious Hurthle cells” do you think the patient should have the thyroid removed because the endo says to?
