If My Thyroid Blood Test Results Were Negative Could I Have Thyroid Cancer
Could you tell me if someone has thyroid cancer wouldn't the CBC blood test show that something was abnormal?
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
I have a couple of 6mm lymp nodes and my mchc came back low on my blood test. Does one have to do with the other? I also had thyroid cancer last year.
Cannot say: cannot say in your particular case, but generally, 6mm lymph nodes are not necessarily significant. MCHC low implies low iron, but can be wtih a chronic disease (active or recovering from cancer, among many many others). BUt could also theoretically be the beginning of a return of the cancer. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Tsh stands for thyroid stimulating hormone. It does exactly that-- tells your thyroid to make thyroid hormone. If your thyroid isn't making enough hormone, your TSH will increase. And if your thyroid is making too much hormone, your TSH will go down. But cancer is usually not the cause for a high or low tsh. And you can have a completely normal TSH and still have thyroid cancer. Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My blood test showed an elevated level of tg antibodies. Does that mean I have cancerous cells running around? Had papillary thyroid cancer a year ago

(no conversion formula exists.) if your tg antibodies are only 20 or so, with an undetectable tg level, it is hard to know what that means. If your tg antibodies are much higher, then concern for the presence of thyroid cancer would increase. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Must take thyroid: I don't know what your question is, but it appears that you were not taking Synthroid (thyroxine) for many months. This is very dangerous. Your body requires thyroid hormone to function correctly. Since you had your thyroid removed, there is no alternative to taking thyroid hormone. Having had thyroid cancer, it is essential that the TSH be normal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
