3 Cm Thyroid Nodule
I entered wrong size on original question. Can a 3 CM thyroid nodule cause carotid artery occlusion?
Maybe: Most "inconclusive" thyroid biopsies are fine needle biopsies (fnas). "inconclusive" ones are usually benign but occasionally are not, and this can only be established with a proper surgical excision and full pathology examination. This is the reason to remove a nodule...Not its size. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
3 thyroid nodules sizing from .9-1.5 cm. mild diffuse hyperechoic & hetergenorous. 6 weeks post childbirth.
after childbirth. I'm scared.
FNAB: Hi. Hyperechoic is no guarantee. Your nodule(s) >10 mm need fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). Don't be scared...most are benign. But by the same token, don't ASSUME benignity! Satisfy yourself with cold, hard facts...cytology (and, hopefully, genetic testing, such as Afirma). Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If one-4 cm and two tiny benign thyroid nodules were removed 11 years ago, what are chances new nodules are malignant?
I have 3 thyroid nodules ranging from .7 - 1.5 CM but my lab was normal? What could this be the us showed 3 mild hyperechoic nodules & was diffused
Nodules, normal labs: Hi. The only nodules that definitely are NOT cancer are hyperthyroid nodules (TSH would be suppressed to some degree, so labs not normal). Most nodules are associated with normal thyroid labs; most of these are benign, but the thyroid cancers are also among this group. The standard is to needle biopsy nodules 10 mm or greater in diameter; so normal labs only mean the nodule SHOULD be biopsied. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a complex thyroid nodule that was much smaller but has grown to 2.9 CM (it was less than a CM 7 years ago) and I can feel it, do I need surgery?
FineNeedle aspiratio: 4-7 % thyroid nodules can be cancerous. What was your TSH levels. Was a fine needle aspiration (FNA) ever performed on this nodule? If TSH IS NORMAL get FNA! If TSH lower than normal get Nuclear Thyroid Scan. If scan shows non functioning nodule...then get FNA. If FUNCTIONING NODULE check FT4 and T3 (liothyronine) levels. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Had US Thyroid nodule 3.2 CM in Nov '13 and End. said not need for FNA but I insisted and had it in June '14. Results-indeterminate what does this mean?

It may help to have a conversation, along with your doctor, with the pathologist who examined the FNA material. S/he may be able to voice any concerns the FNA material generated to submit the "indeterminate" report. ...Read more
