Clarify: Hi. Your PTH is high and MEN-1 in the family. That calcium makes no sense unless it's a 24-hour urine calcium, in which case it's high. What's your serum calcium? Your thyroid autoantibodies are high, and your thyroid function is normal. MEN-1 is not assoc. with autoimmune thyroid disease, so that looks like maybe an unrelated finding. Most MEN-1 patients get primary hyperparathyroidism before 57 ...Read more

Thyroid is not: the problem. It is not clear what problems you have, however, it is unlikely that the problem is due to your thyroid. You did not state if you have any symptoms. If you do not, it would be a good idea to not chase lab results. ...Read more

Should a vague 3mm nodule in the inferior left lobe (heterogeneously in echotexture) of the thyroid be biopsied? Should I worry about this?

Should a vague 3mm nodule in the inferior left lobe (heterogeneously in echotexture) of the thyroid be biopsied? Should I worry about this?

No and no: Hi. No, a 3 mm nodule is not biopsied. It's tiny, and would be a technically difficult FNA. And, no, you shouldn't be worried. ...Read more

Bilateral thyroid lobes are enlarged and show diffuse heterogeneous echotexture with increased vascularity.  What does that mean?
