Single hot 1 CM nodule on thyroid scan with normal thyroid blood panels & uptake. Chances of malignancy?

Single hot 1 CM nodule on thyroid scan with normal thyroid blood panels & uptake. Chances of malignancy?

Not likely: "hot" nodules are rarely cancer and most often represent benign follicular adenomas. These are also known as "autonomous" nodules because they make thyroid hormone but don't respond to the body's normal signals telling them when to stop making the hormone. The vast majority of thyroid cancer nodules are "cold" on a thyroid scan. ...Read more

Nodule (Definition)

Any growth or deposit in the body or on its surface may be casually termed a nodule until its character is determined by the familiarity of the physician with it or by the results of a biopsy if it is not so obvious. The term is casual ...Read more

Scan shows 2.1 CM nodule on thyroid Hypervascular on color Doppler slight heterogenous echotexture / incomplete pseudocapsule RLLProb cancer or no?

Need cells: Hi. You need an FNA. There are some ultrasound (U/S) characteristics that can suggest cancer (irregular borders, micro-calcifications, hypo-echoic, vascularity), but all you need at this point is an FNA for cells (and hopefully gene testing). Good luck! ...Read more

Sonogram showed 1.1 CM nodule on my thyroid, blood work is fine. Should I be worried? What are the possibilities of it being malignant?

Sonogram showed 1.1 CM nodule on my thyroid, blood work is fine. Should I be worried? What are the possibilities of it being malignant?

Common problem: Small nodules of the thyroid are very common in women in your age group. Most of these nodules are benign. There are other characteristics that can be seen on thyroid ultrasound that would make one more or less suspicious. We will typically biopsy nodules larger than 1.5 cm, and observe nodules under 1 cm. Your nodule is borderline for biopsy. A thyroid scan is usually of no assistance. ...Read more

Does a solid 1.1 CM thyroid nodule need to be biopsy?

Does a solid 1.1 CM thyroid nodule need to be biopsy?

Yes: Solid nodules carry the risk of being thyroid cancer (although certainly most solid thyroid nodules are not cancer). Because of the risk, you should have a biopsy done (most can be done using a very thin needle while an ultrasound is being done). ...Read more

For over 2 yrs. I have had pain in the front of my neck as well as bi-lateral enlarged lymph nodes. Two 1.5 cm thyroid nodules just found. Thoughts?

For over 2 yrs. I have had pain in the front of my neck as well as bi-lateral enlarged lymph nodes. Two 1.5 cm thyroid nodules just found. Thoughts?

Thyroid issues: Thyroid conditions such as thyroiditis and nodules can exist and cause symptoms for years. The thyroid nodules need to be biopsied and if the lymph nodes are enlarged enough, they may also need to be biopsied for a more specific diagnosis. Certainly, thyroid lab tests also need to be done if not done already. Good luck ...Read more

Cause one-sided swelling from cheek to finger tips? (same side as swollen cervical lymph nodes (normal WBC count) and small (1 cm) thyroid nodule?)

Need for examination: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you, taking more history and may be performing some tests. You obviously have seen a doctor as you have had lab tests. It would be prudent to see him/her if you have not done so recently. ...Read more

Thoughts on 1.4 cm isoechoic thyroid nodule with peripheral calcification and moderate blood flow. Also round lymph node on other side of neck?

Consult Endocrinedoc: An Endocrinologist is the best doctor to guide you in this matter. This thyroid nodule needs close follow up and will likely require a FNAC (needle biopsy) to confirm the diagnosis. But you have sometime to find the right doctor. Such nodules are slow to change, so a follow up evaluation in 6 mo may be another alternative which I am sure your present doctor would have offered as one of your choices ...Read more

2 thyroid cystic nodules 1.6 cm and 1 cm in size on one side causing problems while eating. Recommend hemithyroidectomy? What are the risks?

Very few: And they will be explained in detail by your thyroid surgeon. You can easily live on thyroid replacement (which may be the choice of your physician (to "avoid" development of further nodules in the other half of the gland)
Hope this helps!

solid thyroid nodule was 3.3 last year now 3.5 cm. Fna biopsy normal in 2011. should I be concern. Endo said see me one yr with ultrasound. Worried?

Thyroid nodule: You already know that the nodule was benign in 2011. 3.3 vs 3.5 cm is basically the same. Since you had the ultrasound, you should see your endo, and probably get new set of thyroid tests, but it does not need to be urgent if you are feeling well. ...Read more

Can a solid nodule 1.1 CM on thyroid go away on its own?

Can a solid nodule 1.1 CM on thyroid go away on its own?

Not likely: If it is solid and solitary, it is probably a neoplasm, most likely an adenoma. But it could also be cancer, so have it checked out. Even if it is, most thyroid cancers have excellent prognosis with surgical treatment alone. ...Read more
