Is Heterogeneous Thyroid Nodule With Microcalcifications Indicative Of Cancer
I have a 4.4cmx3.5cmx1.1cm solid thyroid nodule. The report read "Microcalcifications" and "Hypervascular". What is the likelihood that it is cancer?
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 more
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
Thyroid nodules. 17x10x14mm Hoarse voice. Microcalcification w/ mild increased vascularity. Hoarse voice. Labs normal. FNA next week. Cancer? Thanks
3cm hypoechoic solid vascular thyroid nodule with a cluster of hurthle cells, fna benign, follow up ultrasound now shows microcalcifications. Cancer?
Not necessarily...: The fact that FNA was reported as benign, the nodule is unlikely to be malignant. Small droplets of benign colloid often mimic "microcalcificatins" of papillary tumor, hence caution is advised. I would suggest repeating the FNA, and consider also collecting samples for gene profiling studies, such as, those manufactured by Veracyte and Asuragen (Note:I have no financial/other interest.) ...Read more
Does a homogeneous or heterogeneous solid thyroid nodule have more cancer risk? I see lots of info on heterogeneous but not on homogeneous.
Depend solid or cyst: Thyroid nodule either solis or cystic and that could be done by ultrasound next it has to be classified as cold or hot or warm and that could be done by thyroid scan if it is solid and cold have higher tendency to be malignant oat of thyroid nodules are benign if it is of some concern the doctor will perform fine needle aspiration to exclude malignancy you should be under doctor carei ...Read more
It depends: Thyroid nodules are mostly (80-90%) benign. But it depends on their size and rate of change (growth in their size). A repeat Ultrasound study of your Thyroid should be done (I am sure your doctor must have advised you to do so)) in 6 to 12 months time to reassess for any growth in the nodules in your Thyroid. ...Read more
I have a tyroid nodule, 1.6 x. 9 x 3 cm. Heterogeneously attenuating predominantly cystic right thyroid nodule. What's it mean and could it be cancer?
Thyroid: Its highly unlikely to be cancer. The odds favor this being a thyroglossal duct cyst. Pts often present at you age. You don't say where exactly your mass is. TDC is usually near midline. Another possibility is a branchial cleft cyst which is also a congenital problem. Your docs may want to do a CT guided fine needle biopsy. Hang in there. I think you will be fine. ...Read more
I have a heterogeneous hypoechoic thyroid nodule with solid components, internal vascularity and calcifications. Is there a chance this is cancer?
Yeah some: Wife had biopsy for this this week. Chance is low but that warrants a biopsy. ...Read more

Thyroid nodule at 3.4 x 4.7 x 2.3cm. Blood tests confirm all is normal. Ultrasound shows heterogeneous iso/small area hypechoic. Chances of cancer?
Solid heterogeneous thyroid nodule 15mm to 3cm in 2 years and normal TSH levels. If it is cancer, could it have spread over the 2 years? Fna tomorrow.
I have large thyroid nodule with microcalcifications and an additional solid hypoechic nodule. Is this indicative of malignancy?
What are the chances a 4mm thyroid nodule with microcalcifications present is malignant? What are the cure and survival rates for a 29 y. O. Male?
Percentage of thyroid nodules with microcalcification who had radiation as child that is malignant?
How often are thyroid nodule microcalcifications cancerous? Can capsule be ruptured during biopsy?
Hmm: Microcalcifications in a thyroid nodule are from small calcium deposits in the cells. Thyroid cancer can be associated with this finding, however, benign nodules can also have them. A nodule with microcalcifications should have a fine needle aspiration to help diagnose which it is. ...Read more
I have stable, dominant 10 mm left thyroid nodule with possible internal microcalcifications. What does it mean? Do I need thyroid scan?
Thyroidologist: Usually, in women especially multiple thyroid nodules are all benign. However, that being said, if there's any doubt a needle biopsy is the diagnostic procedure of choice. I feel that an endocrinologist or preferably a thyroidologist is best qualified to evaluate, treat and follow you. Thyroid scans or ultrasounds alone don't usually settle the problem in my experience. ...Read more

Thyroid nodules -should patient know? Us features microcalcifications, shape, hypoechogenicity, type III color power doppler do doctors look carefully?
Thyroid nodules: Many people have thyroid nodules. Most are benign. There are many features that a radiologist will look for in thyroid nodules to help determine if further evaluation is needed. The most important features are calcification, taller than wide nodules and irregular microlobulations. If need be a fna or core biopsy can be preformed. ...Read more
Not 100%: If the nodule is still in your neck, there is no way to know that it is 100% benign. Even if you had a biopsy before and it came back benign, there is still a chance that the spot of cancer was missed during the first biopsy. This is why we don't "poo poo" it away after 1 biopsy but continue to follow the thyroid nodule to monitor for size changes. All said, the risk of cancer is very small. ...Read more
U/s confirmed thyroid nodules requires bx. More than a few&a couple over 1.5cm. Thyroid disease is that addison's? Highwbc, plate? On chance its cancer
Are tiny calcium deposits that can occur in various parts of the body, such as the breast and thyroid gland. There are a variety of causes, most benign, but certain cancers can also produce them. Generally, the shape and distribution determine the level of suspicion. Typically benign looking microcalcs can usually be ignored, and more suspicious microcalcs likely ...Read more
