I have a thyroid nodule but the ultra sound said it was small and no need for further treatment. Why do I still feel like I am chocking?

I have a thyroid nodule but the ultra sound said it was small and no need for further treatment. Why do I still feel like I am chocking?

Must b another cause: Choking sensation in the throat can be due to something other than an abnormality in the thyroid. Because the anatomy in that area includes the vocal cords, the trachea, esophagus, epiglottis; abnormalities in any of these other areas may cause a choking sensation. See doc. Common cause is swelling of the larynx or vocal cord from acid reflux which is treated with a trial of an acid reducer med. ...Read more

Treatment. Options for thyroid nodules. Should I have surgery

Treatment. Options for thyroid nodules. Should I have surgery

Many: Many factors effect whether surgery is appropriate. The size of the nodule, thyroid blood tests, biopsy findings from the nodule, and findings on thyroid ultrasound. These all need to be considered to make a sensible decision on how best to proceed. And your anxiety about cancer and family history of cancer also must be factored in during your discussion with your endocrinologist.

Good luck. ...Read more

I'm confused aftr readng! .Have thyroid nodules. Ws on synthroid (thyroxine).10 yrs later, diff. Dr took off syn. Ok for no treatment w/nodules dr. Rarely ultrasnds?

Evolving knowledge: In the past it is not uncommon for people with thyroid nodules to be started on levothyroxine supplementation. The logic was high dose thyroxine would keep the nodule from growing. Studies have failed to prove this and most endocrinologists gave up the practice of prescribing levothyroxine suppression for thyroid nodules. Most thyroid nodules are benign (>95%), long history is reassuring in ur cas. ...Read more

Less than 1cm hypoechoic thyroid nodule disappeared one month later. Dr said 1st ultrasound wasn't overread. How'd it disappear?

Thyroid nodule: Thyroid cysts can certainly come/go. The quality of ultrasounds, the interpretation, and the definition of a "nodule" can vary. Hashimoto's can cause a patchy pattern that can look like a nodule. Certainly a small nodule that is so transient is not something to worry about. An endocrinologist should be able to interpret things. ...Read more
