Follicular Cells Of The Thyroid Gland
Incomplete informat: The presence of histiocytes (a type of inflammatory cell) & expected follicular cells in thyroid is not necessarily worrisome. But it depends on your symptoms, & what prompted the biopsy / FNA to begin with. Also, did you have a radioactive iodine exam? (Called "thyroid uptake & scan")? That tells you if the follicle is "functional" or not (making hormone). A hyperfunctional nodule is more worriso ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It is an endocrine gland which produces thyroxin hormone which controls the metabolism in every cell in the body.It produces 80 to 90%t4 and 10 to 20 %t3. These control rate of metabolism and affect the growth and rate of functions of many cells in the body it is ...Read more

What parts of the adrenal gland are controled by the pituitary gland? I read that there are three parts of the adrenal gland.
The adrenal: cortex, or outer portion, is mostly controlled by the pituitary, and predominately produces cortisone, aldosterone and some sex hormones. The inner portion, or medulla, is regulated by blood pressure, nervous stimulation, emotions, etc. and produces epinephrine, norepinephrine and some other lesser hormones. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Review with your MD: Usually, when one aspirates a thyroid cyst one may see "rare epithelioid giant cells". Most simple cysts of the thyroid are benign. However, fine needle aspirate of cystic papillary thyroid carcinoma may also show this feature and may lack diagnostic cells. So, additional information is needed to interpret the cytology report. ...Read more

Left thyroid papillary carcinoma. Some follicular cells show hurthle cell/oncocytic changes. Is the treatment generally thyroidectomy & rad. Iodine?
Mild enlargement of the right thyroid lobe without discrete nodules. There is a homogeneous appearance to the echotexture of the thyroid gland. ????
1 CM solid node l thyroid lobe a mixed micro and macro- follicular lesion fna consists of follicular cells in small follicles microfollicles & small sheets displaying extensive hurthle cell changes ?
Now benign: From your information it isa benign adenoma , hurthle cell are little larger pinkish cell , but have higher incidence of malignant transformation than follicular , to hurthle cell carcinoma , unlike follicular , it will spread to lung , bone etc, follow your doctor's advice. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fna on thyroid nodule shows predominately hurthle cells with follicular and colloid....34yrs old....nodule 2.7cm...hurthle cells cancer??
MEN II or Graves dis: In multiple endocrine neoplasia type ii patients can have medullary thyroid cancer and adrenaline secreting tumors. This is a rare familial syndrome. Thyroid hormone excess (graves or hyperthyroidism) makes patients more responsive to their own adrenaline. This why hyperthyroid patients are started on inderal, (propranolol) a beta blocker. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In follicular adenoma of thyroid gland , after lobectomy , is ther resk for other remaining lobe to develop follicular carcenoma ?
VERY LOW: In treating thyroid tumors the lesion present should be solitary and essentially cold on thyroid scan. At that time if surgery indicated should the lesion be relatively small and confined to one lobe it is possible to save the other lobe. Ca Dx is made when the adenoma shows evidence of follicular cells breaking the capsule. A second primary occurs in the other lobe in about 5% of patients ...Read more
Fnac report of thyroid nodule-colloid, individual follicular cell n folliculr cell in cluster in haemorrhagic bckground. What it indicate?
Yes: All cells of thyroid origin secrete thyroglobulin. Measuring it to follow a cancer ONLY makes since if the whole thyroid has been removed. If you have anti thyroglobulin antibodies, that makes thyroglobulin measurements unreliable. However, rising or decreasing anti thyroglobulin antibodies can be a proxy for thyroglobulin measurements. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
