Ionized Calcium 4.65, PTH 133, Calcium 10.3, Vitamin D 7, Phosphorus 4.9, recurrent Kidney stones. Thyroid lobe, two parathyroids removed in 2004.

Ionized Calcium 4.65, PTH 133, Calcium 10.3, Vitamin D 7, Phosphorus 4.9, recurrent Kidney stones. Thyroid lobe,  two parathyroids removed in 2004.

Uncertain: These test results don't add up to a straight forward answer. However, I would be concerned about the possibility of recurrent primary hyperparathyroidism. You should take Vit D to eliminate Vit D deficiency as a cause for high PTH levels. Once this is done, if you still have high PTH with high calcium levels, you have recurrent primary HPTH and will need surgery again. ...Read more

I have calification on my right thyroid lobe. My CT scan showed this. There is also a mass on the right side beside it. I have a fna next week cancer?

I have calification on my right thyroid lobe. My CT scan showed this. There is also a mass on the right side beside it. I have a fna next week cancer?

Hard to know.: The calcification is likely benign but the reported mass next to it, who knows. You are doing the right thing with biopsy. You may end up getting that side of the thyroid out if it's big, causing symptoms, a small cancer or indeterminate on biopsy. You may end up with the whole gland removed if it is a larger cancer or has an aggressive cytology. ...Read more

My left thyroid lobe is slightly enlarged and I have a vascular hypoechoic nodule measuring 5x4x3mm ?

Just follow it: This sounds like something you just watch and see if anything changes. Most often there maybe a new one over the year. Goiters are like that. Small nodular findings are common. Would not worry about it but don't forget about it. It is at this time something to remember it's there. Talk to your doctor ...Read more

Sir i have an ultrasound findings saying i have A Diffuse Paranchymal Thyroid lobe disease,bilateral with subcentimeter cyst within the enlarged right?

The next step: is aspiration needle biopsy of the thyroid parenchyma and cyst. If you have high thyroid activity, then a nuclear medicine scan may be done before biopsy, to avoid further release of thyroid hormones into the blood stream. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Solitary subcentimeter nodule in the left thyroid lobe?

Watch/retest: Unless you have a thyroid cancer history, the nodule is suspicious on ultrasound or other factors are in play -- check serum thyroglobulin and thyroid function. Repeat doctor's exam an ultrasound in a year. Generally of very low significance and found in over 50% of the population. ...Read more
