Good diagnosis technique papillary cancer? 
Http://thyroid.About.Com/od/cancergoiternodules/a/veracyte-afirma-thyroid-analysis-nodules.Htm"

Start w/the basics: A better question is: how do you diagnose a thyroid mass? Since 99% of thyroid masses are benign, you wouldn't start out by looking for one type of tumor. Feel the neck and observe for multiple lumps. Go to an ultrasound to check out the fluicd content (suggesting cysts). If it appears to be a solid mass, go for either a nuclear scan or a needle biopsy. Open biopsy or surgery comes last. ...Read more

There may be other factors i'm not aware of that may move a doc to take a different approach so have a good talk with your doc about your options. ...Read more

FNA results 2.4cm thyroid nodule was FLUS.Please explain good vs bad for US.Mildly hypervascular solid circumscribed. Histo is microfollicles. ?

Referral: Most thyroid nodules are benign and this is a common problem. However, this can be serious. Usually a fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNA) will determine if the nodule is cancerous or benign. This test can get right to the bottom of the issue. Often an ultrasound is needed to determine the characteristics of a thyroid nodule. You need a pathologist and radiologist you can trust! ...Read more

Can you tell me the histology of hypertension?

Essential HTN: Essential HTN is the cause of most hypertension. We can treat it though we don't truly know the cause. A very small percentage of hypertension are known as secondary htn, have known causes such a renal artery stenosis, pheocromocytoma and other rare disorders. These are rare. I have personally had two cases in twelve years of active practice... More important that the cause is aggressive treatment. ...Read more

MRI biopsy was done and showed DCIS. Histopathology showed invasive ductal  with 2.5 mm microinvasion (grade 2). ER-PR negative, HER +ve (+3). My ques?

I'm not sure: of the question. It is not unusual for an image-guided needle biopsy DCIS to be 'upgraded' to an invasive cancer at surgery. The needle biopsy randomly samples small areas of the lesion, whereas following surgery the pathologist has the whole mass to work with. It is relatively common to have elements of DCIS and invasive components existing in different parts of the same tumor. ...Read more

Is chemotherapy required for stage 1A IDC breast cancer, tumor size 1.1 cm, ER & PR positive, HER2 negative, nuclear grade 1. Patient is 42 years old.

Borderline call!: Your breast tumor is quite small, so it has >90% odds that it can be safely treated with surgery, without any chemotherapy required.
