Hypervascular Thyroid Nodule
I have a 4.5 CM hypervascular thyroid nodule (benign) that has grown .6 mm in the past 5 months. Is this considered rapidly growing?
Thyroid US results: It is hard to interpret a thyroid ultrasound, especially online. Your profile says "hypothyroid and raised antibodies". This could mean Hashimotos, and the US is consistent with that. A 12 mm nodules is small, and could be consistent with the scarring in a Hashimotos gland, but this requires review by an Endocrinologist. ...Read more
What's your opinion on doing a fna biopsy on a thyroid nodule that is "ill-defined" and "hypervascular" but only 6 mm?
I have a 4.4cmx3.5cmx1.1cm solid thyroid nodule. The report read "Microcalcifications" and "Hypervascular". What is the likelihood that it is cancer?
Needs Biopsy: Thyroid nodule with microcalcification&hypervascularity have a likelihood of being Cancerous in about approx 5.3 % of cases according to literature.Ask your endocrinologist for Biopsy We really need other teatures like irregular or regular border,Pattern of calcifications like few few or snowstorm parttern,minimal or high internal flow These are other features taken into account to prediction ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
FNA results 2.4cm thyroid nodule was FLUS.Please explain good vs bad for US.Mildly hypervascular solid circumscribed. Histo is microfollicles. ?
Referral: Most thyroid nodules are benign and this is a common problem. However, this can be serious. Usually a fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNA) will determine if the nodule is cancerous or benign. This test can get right to the bottom of the issue. Often an ultrasound is needed to determine the characteristics of a thyroid nodule. You need a pathologist and radiologist you can trust! ...Read more
I have a 4.5 x 3.5 thyroid nodule: solid, hypervascular. My tgab is at 70 and TSH is 3.15. I am symptomatic. Is this a cancer marker?
No: Tgab and TSH are not cancer markers. It's important to know if the nodule is 4.5 cm or mm? If cm, you should get an ultrasound guided biopsy. If mm, it is very small and just need surveillance. If you are young and already symptomatic with a 4.5 cm thyroid mass, surgery is an option for you. Please discuss all this with your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hello i recently found a lump on my neck i went for ultra sound and it confermed a thyroid nodule size 2cm by 3 CM non cystic and hypervascular ?
Biopsy: Hi. Assuming your thyroid function is normal (not hyperthyroid), the thyroid nodule you describe needs fine needle aspiration biopsy for cytology (and hopefully genetic testing) to see if it's cancer. If it's not cancer, you can leave it in and just follow it, and thus avoid surgery for a non-cancerous tumor. I have to assume that whoever ordered the ultrasound has told you that you need FNAB. ...Read more
Thyroid ultrasound shows heterogenous hypervascular echogenicity. No nodules. Thyroid labs were normal. Any ideas on what this is?
What thyoid labs?: There are many thyroid labs and most docs do not check enough of them? This ultrasound is consistent with grave's disease and thyroiditis. With grave's standard thyroid tests would usually be abnormal but might look ok with thyroiditis. Please make sure anti-thyroid antibodies (anti-tpo and anti-thyroglobulin) have been checked, as well as free t3 and reverse t3. ...Read more
