Fine needle aspiration (or FNA) procedures are performed at our Smales Farm clinic, where a pathologist can read the specimens straight away. After determining the correct site to perform the biopsy, the doctor will give you a local anaesthetic that may cause a brief stinging discomfort. The biopsy itself takes a matter of seconds but you might need to be monitored on site for 2-3 hours. Appointment required: Yes Typical procedure time: 30 minutes
