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

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?

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.

What is a not active nodule on my thyroid?

What is a not active nodule on my thyroid?

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.

What does a nodule in your thyroid feel like?

What does a nodule in your thyroid feel like?

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.

What does the thyroid with nodules look like?

What does the thyroid with nodules look like?

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.

What are the symptoms of nodules on a thyroid..

Thyroid nodules: Thyroid nodules may have no symptoms, may have symptoms of an overactive thyroid, or an under active thyroid. Please see your doctor, explain any symptoms, and then the doctor will examine you and decide what the next moves are if needed.

What is a low non- attenuated nodule on thyroid?

What is a low non- attenuated nodule on thyroid?

Thyroid nodule: Thyroid nodules in women are common. Most thyroid nodules are benign. Dependent on size and other characteristics a needle aspiration biopsy is often performed to stratify whether surgery is required.

Can a benign nodule in a thyroid turn into bad ones?

Can a benign nodule in a thyroid turn into bad ones?

No: Thyroid cancers start as thyroid cancers and form cancerous nodules. Benign nodules start benign and do not become malignant.

What are indeterminate complex nodules in my thyroid?

What are indeterminate complex nodules in my thyroid?

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. Please read thyroid nodule at http://doctorrajput. Com thanks.

Just found out I have a nodule of. 4cm on my thyroid right side is this bad?

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.

Do I have to have my entire thyroid removed if I only have nodules in one side?

Do I have to have my entire thyroid removed if I only have nodules in one side?

Depends: It depends on the nature of the nodule. If it is malignant, then the whole gland needs to come out. If it is benign, then even the nodules need not be removed.

Thyroid has several nodules but told they are fine as they are small. Should I be concerned?

Thyroid has several nodules but told they are fine as they are small. Should I be concerned?

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.

I have nodules on my thyroid that is not working do I have to remove it or no please advise?

I have nodules on my thyroid that is not working do I have to remove it or no please advise?

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.

What does 2 left thyroid love nodules measuring 1.3 by 1.1cm and 0.7 by 0.6cm mean for my thyroid?

Hard to say: You need to find out more about the nodules. A thyroid scan may help to further classify the nodules. Also a biopsy may be needed. A thyroid nodule may be as simple as a cyst or something more concerning. The additional testing will be able to differentiate it for you.

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 (.

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.

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?

Thyroid nodules: 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.

In 2008 partial right side thyroid removed due to a single nodule that turned out to be benign. Now have fast growing nodules bilaterally, concerning?

If you have: Been on an appropriate dose of brand name T4 replacement and still formed new nodules, they need evaluation and possibly surgery. If you haven't been on replacement since 2008, then somebody goofed because it would probably have prevented the new nodule formation.

Had thyroid us 3months ago, showed small nodule on left. Had 2nd scan last wk, showed thyroid enlarged & now a second nodule on right. Should I be scared?

Continue to observe: Small nodules occur in over 50% of people, as long as the're tiny, there's usually no problem, but continued medical monitoring is certainly recommended. The second nodule may have been there all along, but missed on the first exam.
