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 more

You should have your renal function and serum phosphorus levels checked...then get back to us! This condition, hyperparathyroidism, depending on the cause, is very treatable but can cause some serious problems if not. Good luck! ...Read more
