Biospy of thyroid report "Macrofollicular thyroid parenchyma, suggestive of nodular hyperplasia" What does this means?
Lymphocyte expansion: Lymphocyte hyperplasia is an increased number of lymphocytes in a tissue. It is often a normal response to infection or chronic inflammation. Hyperplasia involves the expansion of numerous cells in response to a stimulus. This is unlike lymphoid malignancies, which involve autonomous growth starting from a single genetically abnormal cell. ...Read more
Abundant benign appearing follicular epithelial cells, hemosidering-laden macrophages &colloid present. & scattered micro follicles noted. Favor adenomatoid nodule. What is adenomatoid nodule?
Pathologic diagnosis....Resected thymus shows reactive b cell hyperplasia vs low grade b cell lympho proliferative disorder. Is this lymphoma?
Could be...: Certain lymphomas grow so slow that sometimes it is difficult for the pathologist to make the call between malignant or not. I suspect they may do additional work on the specimen and that your doctor will evaluate you further with labs, additional scans or another biopsy. If you have not seen a hematologist, maybe this is the time. Don't panic, just follow up his/her lead. Best to you. ...Read more

3cm hyperechoic thyroid nodule with increased vascularity, normal TSH fnac- follicular cell with hyperplastic area. What it indicates?
Uncertain: The fna can only help if it shows cancer. But in your case it is ambiguous, so your doctor should guide you what to do next?...What did he/she suggest as the next step? Most doctors would next recommend either surgical excision or monitor closely for some time and see if it is growing in size in which case it has to be taken out. ...Read more

Pathology report: You have to go over the details with your doc. The most important word was the last word that you typed which said that the lesion was BENIGN. Not malignant. That is the key but go over it with your doc. ...Read more
Thyroid: the ecoestrutura glandular parenchyma is heterogeneous, individualizing bilaterally presence of predominantly hypoechoic nodular areas.?
Norm. tsh, pth 103, tpo ab 839, calcium 383, abnormal thyroid/para-heterogeneous parenchymal echotexture-thyroid,no nodule,ill defined hypoecoic lesion posterior to rt thyroid lobe,ill def para nodule?
Clarify: Hi. Your PTH is high and MEN-1 in the family. That calcium makes no sense unless it's a 24-hour urine calcium, in which case it's high. What's your serum calcium? Your thyroid autoantibodies are high, and your thyroid function is normal. MEN-1 is not assoc. with autoimmune thyroid disease, so that looks like maybe an unrelated finding. Most MEN-1 patients get primary hyperparathyroidism before 57 ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Decipher fna biopsy: benign hyperplastic/adenomatoid nodule w/ cystic hemorrhagic change. Also, prep shows follicular cells w/ macrophage and colloid?
Thyroid fnac report-atypia of undetermined significance or follicular neoplasm. What it means? Treatment?
Thyroid FNA: Hi. A follicular neoplasm of undetermined significance means the cytology doesn't meet criteria for cancer or benign, thus the "undetermined significance". Historically, most of these turn out to be benign, but a significant subset are cancer. It appears they did not do gene testing. Next step would usually be surgical excision of the nodule, frozen section analysis, then total thyroidectomy if CA ...Read more
Benign lesion: lymphocytic infiltrates are the common form of pathology seen with inflammatory thryroiditis or Hashimotos disease of the thyroid. Unless there are complications from the enlarging mass, conservative management is usually in order. Meds in the form of levothyroxine are usually administered for the hypothyroidism that may exist. ...Read more

My thyroid nodule report says rare macrophages and colloid consistent with follicular lesion of undetermined significance. Foll...lesion can't exclude?
Follow advice of end: Your Endocrinologist can guide you best. Your biopsy appears to be inadequate to make a definite diagnosis. Future follow up with an endocrinologist is advised so that your thyroid can be monitored for any further growth of this nodule which is easy to do with an ultrasound. ...Read more
