Thyroid nodule of the right lobe. Fna indicated follicular lesion-also hypothyroid, family history of malignant thyroid nodules. Options?
Surgery or...: A repeat biopsy combined with an afirma assay test may give you somewhat better guidance, but with your history and risk factors, surgery may be the best option. By the way, why are you taking generic T4 an Armour Thyroid together? There is no way to monitor the dosage properly as the lab tests will be unreliable. Brand name T4 is better, safer and more reliable. ...Read more
Only occassionally: While almost all thyroid cancers are cold, so are most benign nodules. If the nodule is hot, it is extremely rare for it to be cancer. If it is cold and looks suspicious on an ultrasound performed or at least interpreted by a very experienced clinician, it should be biopsied to see if surgery is necessary. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

3 thyroid nodules, hypoechoic solid nodule with few tiny calcified 1st FNA is benign follicular lesion and 2nd is benign follicular nodule,possible?
Thyroid follicles: Most likely, the ultrasound is picking up benign follicular cysts, or areas of "colloid" (where thyroid hormone is made) arranged in a circular pattern or nodule. From the description (& the 2 FNA biopsies) it's unlikely to be cancer. In certain parts of the world (40% of it), iodine deficiency is common & thyroid nodules are prominent. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/thyroid-nodules ...Read more

1st FNA is benign follicular lesion, u/s ;hypoechoic thyroid nodule with few small calcifications, 2nd FNA ; hard consistency solid nodule,%ofcancer?
Talk to YOUR MD: You clearly have a thyroid problem, and this needs to be discussed in context of the bigger clinical picture. If you have had FNA done, you have a doc following you. See them and ask what this means in your case and what should be done next. Lab results never occur in isolation. They occur in people, and the whole person has to be considered when making a diagnosis and treatment plan. Best wishes! ...Read more
Unlikely but ask doc: Most of the the thyroid nodules are benign, cystic nodules are even more benign, but sometimes a small focus of cancer could be inside the cyst, to be sure most of the time after fine needle aspiration (fna) will be done by your doctor send for biopsy ( cytology ) to be sure it is benign.. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Subcentimeter hypodense nodule on left thyroid lobe with coarse focus of calcification---subcentimeter left thyroid nodule.Non-specific in nature.
Thyroid nodules: Most nodules less than 1 cm are not concerning and can be monitored with periodic ultrasounds. Some features such as calcification may heighten concern. Much more information is necessary in your situation. Is there family history of thyroid cancer, personal history of hyper or hypothyroidism, and radiation exposure? You need to discuss this with an endocrinologist and arrange a treatment plan. ...Read more

Thyroid ultrasound1.4x1.1x1.1cm rim calcified nodule left mid thyroid.Well circumscribe hypoechoic1.4x1.9x1cm nodule w/mild internal flow.Is it cancer?
Let's find out: This may be nothing but a colloid nodule in a developing nodular goiter. If the radiologist can't rule out cancer, you may be getting a fine-needle aspiration. With this pattern of calcification, it's unlikely to be an aggressive tumor even if it is cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have multinodular goiter with two nodules measuring 10 mm and 11 mm on each lobe, then there are scattered ones throughout my thyroid. Biopsy?
Depends: The decision to biopsy is made between you and your treating physician. It depends on your level of comfort, what it looks like on ultrasound and whether or not it had changed from previous ultrasounds. Your choice right now is to undergo biopsy or do another ultrasound in 1 year and biopsy only if changes are seen. Both choices are reasonable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do solid benign thyroid nodules grow quickly? And could you have normal TSH levels with a solid benign nodule on the thyroid?
Nodules: Growth of thyroid nodules may represent malignancy. The only way to really know is to perform fna biopsy. Many patients with solid thyroid nodules will have normal tsh. Thyroid scans are generally no longer thought to be useful in distinguishing between benign and malignant nodules. Rai thyroid scans should be ordered in patients with suspected hyperthyroidism, not routinely for all patients. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can hashimoto cause swallowing problems? Anti-tpo over 1300, 2 nodules , plus one calcified nodule, each less that 1 sm. On Armour Thyroid meds
Swallowing difficult: Yes -- if the goiter is large. Have a gastroenterologist perform a "swallowing study". Armour is crap -- don't use it. Use only synthetic thyroid hormone replacement. Calcified nodules often need biopsy or excision to determine cancer likelihood. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
