Treatment. Options for thyroid nodules.. Should I have surgery

Dr. Daniel Weiss
Board Certified, Endocrinology

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. I suggest a visit with an endocrinologist before any surgery is done. Most (90%) of thyroid nodules are not cancerous. Good luck. ...Read more

It depends: An endocrinologist can help sort this out. Often they will do an ultrasound examination and a needle biopsy to find out if it is benign or cancerous. Once this is sorted out then the treatment is dependent on the cause...It may need to be removed surgically if they suspect the nodule to be cancerous. ...Read more

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

What is the treatment for a well defined heterogenous psychoechoic slightly solid thyroid nodule?

Monitor: Depends on the size of the nodule, you might need a biopsy to make sure it is benign.
