I had a fine needle biopsy on Friday of last week and going

This answer was rated:

I had a fine needle biopsy on Friday of last week and going into Tuesday I am still having brusing like pain in the area it was done, without the bruise. It hurts to yawn and sneeze and im not sure if that's normal. I have swelling at the site as well, but no streaking red areas, no visual bruise, or no heat coming from the site.
What is the location where such procedure has undergone?
Is swelling increasing in size over the time?
Associated fever,discharge from site?
Are you taking any medicines?

Thanks dear.

I was a biopsy of a mass on my thyroid. No it has not gotten bigger, but its about the same as the day of the biopsy. I take Tylenol, and no fever or discharge. Its just painful.

Thanks for providing additional information.
I understand your concern and it's my pleasure to help you in every aspect.
Pain,swelling sometimes bleeding at the site of fine needle biopsy are common adverse effects and usually these symptoms last for few days to week.
However as you are still having discomfort so you should take OTC Motrin which is more effective than Tylenol.
Also apply warm compresses on affected area.
In case your symptoms'll not improve in next few days then it's good to see your doctor again to rule out underlying infection and further antibiotics can be prescribed.

Hope this helps.
