8mm Nodule On Thyroid
Is it possible to show signs of hyper thyroidism with a TSH level of 0.75? palipitations, constant hunger, .is this physcosamatic? Multi nodular thyroid
Throid nodules. Upper right lobe hot, lower right lobe cold 3.4cm. Does that mean I have hyper and hypo thyriodism at the same time?
No, the activity: Of individual nodules on a thyroid scan may not, in and of themselves, imply hyper or hypothyroidism, which are diagnoses based on systemic symptoms and blood levels. Certainly, however, an autonomous hot nodule could result in hyperthyroidism. Cold nodules have a higher chance of malignancy (although still relatively low), and biopsy may be indicated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends: A, "not active" nodule of the thyroid, also referred to as a, "cold nodule" was classically one which did not trap various radioactive tags on nuclear thyroid scanning. Classically, a solitary cold nodule was felt to be at a 50% risk for harboring a malignancy. As a result, such nodules are often subjected to needle biopsy, frequently under ultrasound guidance, for further evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on size: You might not feel anything if it's small. Otherwise, it could feel like a lump, a node and if it's big enough, it can feel like a growth/mass on your neck. If it's liquid, like a cyst, it could be soft. If it's a solid growth, it could be rubbery and if it's calcified, it could have a rock/hard feel to it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Varies: Nodules may be visible lumps beneath the surface or invisible ones in the body of the organ, that may be palpable by trained fingers. Ultrasound & radionuclide scans are used to visualize & help characterize them. See doc for thyroid blood tests & follow-up imaging studies if needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Thyroid cancers start as thyroid cancers and form cancerous nodules. Benign nodules start benign and do not become malignant. ...Read more
Indeterminant: You did not mention about findings of ultrasound and thyroid scan. Please have fresh look with experienced endocrinologist, expert pathologist and thyroid surgeon. You can have slide read by other thyroid pathologist or have second fna by experience endocrinologist. 25-50% cancer rate. Complex nodules must be watched closely.

Thyroid nodules: Thyroid nodules are common, especially when ultrasound is used. Because of the the size limits are commonly used to determine who needs a biopsy, along with other factors such as personal and family history, and other characteristics. Most nodules less than 1 cm do not need to be biopsied. Follow-up at that size might also not be required very frequently. ...Read more
Probably not: 95% of solitary nodules benign. High-resolution ultrasonography reveals nodules as small as 2 mm in 35% to 67% of the general population. Common benign nodules include adenomas, thyroid cysts, and hashimoto's thyroiditis. Us characteristics of nodules suggest cancer: marked hypoechogenicity, irregular margins, vascularity, shape, solid components. Most biopsied nodules greater than one cm. In diameter. ...Read more
Depends: Depends on how big the nodules are and whether or not they are causing any compressive symptoms now. If they are small and not causing swallowing or breathing problems, you could just follow them in time with ultrasound. If the subsequent ultrasounds show growing modules, you might consider biopsy then. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi I've got under active thyroid & I've now found out that I have nodules on my right side what could be wrong?
Thyroid nodules: When a thyroid gland becomes underactive, often it can get fibrotic (scar tissue), and that can appear as nodules. Also, the elevated TSH from when you were hypo will stimulate thyroid growth. Thyroid nodules raise the issue of thyroid cancer, but the likelihood is low, especially if the nodules are small (. ...Read more
I had most of my Thyroid removed in 2012 precancerous. Now they said I have a 5mm nodule on my left side. My dr. Said to follow up in In a year?
You're worried.: I can understand why. If your doctor did an ultrasound and saw the nodule, it's probably OK to wait. An ultrasound is pretty good at telling if a nodule is benign. You didn't have thyoid cancer when you had your thyroid removed, which is great, and the reason I'm not worried. But if you didn't have an ultrasound, it might be worth a 2nd opinion about getting one. ...Read more
I had u/s on thyroid and it found 2 nodules. Both on left - 1 at interpolar region and 1 at lower left pole. Where are these locations? Close together?
Who did the diagnosis, you and confirmed by a DR.?
You require a Thyroid scan with 1131, and a fine needle aspiration biopsy.
About 1/10 % of nodules may became cancerous, therefore an endocrinologist should see you. Medicine is advancing by leaps and bounds but it can still be difficult to determine if a thyroid nodule is cancerous or not. Now, people with thyroid nodules can benefit from the latest diagnostic technology. Ask your doctor about Afirma® Thyroid FNA Analysis, a proven solution that may dramatically affect how your nodule is diagnosed and treated. ...Read more
