Having a thyroid biopsy on complex nodule with very little internal flow, complex cyst nodule, and right isthmus appears thickened ireg borders, ?

That is usually an Endocrinologist, whether or not (s)he does the biopsy. Thyroid nodules are common. Most are not cancer.

not if benign: Thyroid cysts are common and are often part of a multinodular goiter. The nodules and cysts need to be evaluated by ultrasound. Some ultrasound features suggest more (or less) suspicion of cancer, and your doctor will want to biopsy those.

They are usually benign but rarely contain malignant components. To be safe, check TSH and get ultrasound. ...Read more

There is a benign cyst on my thyroid. Is it required that i remove it?

There is a benign cyst on my thyroid. Is it required that i remove it?

Probably not: Thyroid cysts are common. If ultrasound shows no features worrisome for thyroid cancer, this can simply be followed by periodic ultrasounds. Your doctor may biopsy the cyst and remove fluid, but sometimes that is not even needed. If the fluid is drained, it will usually come back. If the thyroid and cyst are very large and bother you, it can be removed surgically, but usually not necessary. ...Read more

I was told I have cysts on my thyroids, first could this be the reason I have gained weight? What do I do next?

Check thyroid level: Having small cysts in the thyroid are usually of no significance. A solid or mostly solid nodule over 1 cm in size may need biopsy. It is important to make sure your thyroid function is normal by getting a TSH and free T4 level. If these are normal, your weight gain is due to other reasons. ...Read more

Was told I have a cyst on my thyroid. What is it? Endo says it doesn't do anything.Whatever that means

Listen to endo: Hi. The endo specializes in this kinda thing; listen to her/him. Cysts are very unlikely to be cancer. If you drain them, they tend to re-accumulate (unless alcohol is infused after drainage). They don't affect thyroid function. Get a second opinion if it would make you more comfortable. Good luck! ...Read more
