Could you tell me what happens if my multiple thyroid solid nodules unremoved?

Multinodular goiter: If you have multiple thyroid nodules, you first need to determine if thyroid cancer. This can be done with a careful ultrasound and needle biopsies.

If you decide on surgery, chose a surgeon who does this a lot and has a good record. ...Read more

Additional workup: I am presuming this was seen on an Ultrasound. The next step would usually be to an Ear Nose and Throat surgeon to do a biopsy as they are the specialty typically operating on the thyroid. There is another test called a thyroid uptake scan used to assess nodules but because there is only one and it is large enough to biopsy not likely needed. Findings on biopsy decide if the nodule needs removal. ...Read more

Ultrasound shows enlarged gland with at least 3 nodules the biggest being 3.6 CM * 3.2cm. The nodule is solid with increased vascularity. Diagnosis?

Probable Goiter: I assume this is the thyroid gland. Often the the gland enlarges and contains numerous nodules representing various entities. This is referred to as a "Multinodular Goiter" and is usually benign. There may be functional or hormonal abnormalites which can be measured with blood tests. However, each nodule must be inspected individually to ensure it is not cancer. Biopsy may be the only way to tell. ...Read more

March 5, 2014 Comparison is made to previous studies The mammary tissue is heterogeneously dense which lowers the sensitivity of mammography. Apparently new compared to previous studies is a smoothly marginated 7mm low density ovoid nodule a

I don't have the: Full report, but it sounds like there might be a new finding on screening mammography. The next step is usually a more complete imaging evaluation with diagnostic mammography and probably ultrasound. A final diagnostic code (BIRADS) for the nodule will be determined based on the imaging findings: benign (no followup), probably benign (6 month f/u), suspicious, highly suspicious (needle biopsy) ...Read more
