If My Thyroid Blood Test Results Were Negative Could I Have Thyroid Cancer
Maybe: There is a form of graves disease in which only the eyes are affected ("graves opthalmopathy") - the eyes are more prominent than normal or do not move normally because of the effects of antibodies on the tissues and muscles surrounding the eyes. This can occur either with graves thyroid disease or by itself. Sometimes the eye disease will precede the onset of the thyroid disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Autoimmune thyroid: Anti-tpo antibodies are usually elevated in people with hashimotos thyroiditis and often with graves disease. However, the test is not perfect, and is sometimes negative, even if you have hashi. Also, some labs don't perform the test well. See your endocrinologist. ...Read more
Possible: If the blood tests for thyroid function are normal, i.e., tsh, free T4 and T3 (liothyronine) are all normal, it is sill possible to have thyroid pathology that may reduce the reserves of the gland. If this is a concern, consulting an endocrinologist would be prudent. However, normal test results generally rule out functional deficits of thyroid hormones. ...Read more
What do you suggest if my thyroid tested. the results were high TSH but normal T3 (liothyronine) and t4. I also didn't test for antibodies. what could cause this?
High TSH: This suggests the thyroid is in the early stages of "failing". T4/T3 has not fallen, yet, but the pituitary TSH is working harder to stimulate the thyroid. First, repeat the TSH to make sure not lab error. Do you have hypothyroid symptoms? The cause is probably Hashimotos, even if abs negative. Talk to your doc about whether or not you need to start levothyroxine. ...Read more

Hi i tested for blood test in lab, n it came out positive i m on thyroid medication thyroxine................can it show a false positive pregnancy ?
Yes, you can: Celiac disease often presents in the small bowel as "patchy" so biopsies of only one area may not be representative. Also, if you have celiac disease but eliminated gluten long enough for classic villous blunting changes in the small bowel to have resolved, then biopsies will look normal & the disease may be missed. Talk to your doctor about definitive diagnostic criteria for your piece-of-mind. ...Read more
I recently had a thyroid blood test done. It was normal. If I have cancer in my body would it show up with the blood test?
No: A blood test for thyroid function will not reveal cancer, not even thyroid cancer. There are virtually no reliable blood tests for cancer, exceptions being cancers of blood. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Normal: Hopefully, it'll be normal. Check w/your doctor. It depends upon the lab and your age, but is generally about 0.5 to 4.5 (normal) but 0.5 to about 2.0 (appropriate for you). ...Read more
Im 23yr female. Ive hypothyroid symptoms, but my T3, (liothyronine)T4,TSH test results came out normal. What thyroid tests should i take to test thyroid antibodies?
Thyroid Ab's and...: Many people who are clinically hypothyroid have normal tests as what is normal is debatable. Many believe any TSH above 3 is too high, some even above 2. Check anti-thyroglobulin and TPO antibodies but also test Free T3 (liothyronine) and Reverse T3 (liothyronine).

I had a thyriod test and my thyroid peroxidase reading was 60.6 is there a chance that i could have hashimotos .?
Autoimmune thyroid: Hashimoto's disease is autoimmune condition where immune system attacks own thyroid gland with antibodies (abs) and white blood cells. This eventually leads to damage in thyroid gland and inadequate thyroid hormone production. The earliest blood test that diagnoses hashimoto disease is high levels of abs such as anti-thyroid peroxidase or anti-thyroglobulin abs, even before thyroid hormone is low. ...Read more
