I'd use 10021 for the NFA breast mass because if you look under 19100 in the CPT book, there's a note that says, "for fine needle aspiration, use 10021."
I'd use 10021 or 10022 for the fine needle aspiration of the thyroid because if you look under 60100 in the CPT book, there's a note that says, "for fine needle aspiration, use 10021 or 10022."
If your co-worker continues to gives you any guff.... I'd remind your co-worker that fine needle aspiration (FNA) represents the withdrawal of fluid for testing as compared to percutaneous core needle (19100 and 60100) which is used to obtain a solid tissue sample for testing.
