Does An Elevated Tsh Level Indicate Cancer Of Thyroid
Elevation.: Thyroglobulin autoantibodies can be present in benign/malignant thyroid disease. If you have a diagnosis of papillary or follicular cancer, their presence can interfere with thyroglobulin as a tumor marker. If autoantibodies rise, that can be a surrogate marker for cancer recurrence. As for calcitonin, it's elevation is clinically significant in cases of primary or recurrent medullary cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Happens regularly: This picture is encountered relatively often. Think of it as if the thyroid is inflamed but still has enough reserve to produce adequate hormone. It can be seen in conditions like subclinical thyroiditis or in hashimoto's disease, after the thyroid is "burnt out" and doesn't produce elevated hormone, but before the hormone levels become low. See an endocrinologist for more information. ...Read more
Does a very low level TSH hormone mean hypo - or hyperthyroidism? T3 (liothyronine) is normal range, T4 is at the low level borderline.
Low TSH: Generally indicates an excess in thyroid hormone. That may be chronic w/hyperthyroidism -- or temporary w/thyroid inflammation. See you doctor. If you're already on thyroid replacement, the dose is too high. If you're on t3, (liothyronine) get off of it as it can be dangerous and doesn't work well as chronic replacement.
