Brocolli Is Good For Have A Thyroid Nodule
Probably not: Turmeric, a relative of ginger, is found in indian cooking. It has been touted as a treatment for just about everything (tho not thyroid), but aside from studies in the test tube and in rodents, nothing has been proven. I recommend eating well, including unprocessed foods, complex foods, and spicy foods if that is your pleasure, but don't shy away from "medicine" when the time comes. ...Read more
Why would a t.Surgeon say wait and see , if he thought a lung nodule was a low malignancy in a healthy adult? A
See below: Blondie, i did not realize you are in greece. Medicine in greece is practiced quite differently from the way we do it in the us. They are not that aggressive which may be good or bad in your case. Also unlike here, you won't be able to influence them to do what you want, or seek a second opinion. Is there any way you can come to the us to get treated? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a 4.5 x 3.5 thyroid nodule: solid, hypervascular. My tgab is at 70 and TSH is 3.15. I am symptomatic. Is this a cancer marker?
No: Tgab and TSH are not cancer markers. It's important to know if the nodule is 4.5 cm or mm? If cm, you should get an ultrasound guided biopsy. If mm, it is very small and just need surveillance. If you are young and already symptomatic with a 4.5 cm thyroid mass, surgery is an option for you. Please discuss all this with your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have hypothyroidism, goitered thyroid, and a nodule on my thyroid.Dr sending me for riut to see if nodule is hot or cold. Is this the right procedure?
Remnant is bad: Most common hyperthyroidism is grave's disease. You need to do total or subtotal removal because the remnant can still cause problems. Surgeons used to try to remove "just the right amount" to hopefully not cause hypothyroidism. There are risks of leaving to much and then not helping the problem and a high risk of hypothyroidism anyway. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Just a test: A thyroid uptake and scan is used to aid the differential diagnosis of newly diagnosed thyrotoxicosis and ideally should use i-123 as the radiopharmaceutical (low energy isotope for testing). If the test shows increased thyroid function such as in grave's disease or multi-nodular goiter i-131 can be use to ablate the thyroid gland if this is desire. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is brewers yeast good for a person having thyroids the thyroid that causes a person to gain weight, I think it's hypothyroidism?
Brewer's Yeast: Brewer's yeast comes from a 1-celled fungus (saccharomyces cerevisiae) used in making beer, but not bread. It's been used for years as a nutritional supplement, because it's rich in b-complex vitamins, chromium, and selenium. However, it contains no vitamin b12. Studies have shown it helpful in diabetes, high cholesterol, etc -- but no direct effect on thyroid. http://tinyurl.com/kfvkmn5. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it possible to suffer from hypothyroidism with a TSH within normal range. My TSH is 1.1, but I had a thyroid ultrasound and have a 0.5 cm mass?
Technically.......: but it would be highly unlikely. If the brain doesnt put out enough TSH, the level of that is low to normal and the other hormones are quite low (thyroid NOT stimulated by TSH). the mass is perhaps NOT related because they are pretty common anyway. ...Read more
