Typically thyroid nodules are biopsied and various imaging helps categorize the type. Follow up w/ MD ...Read more

Is it still okay to run/jog/long walk/exercise if I have hyperthyroidism and thyroid nodules? I will medicate my disease soon.

Depends: If your hyperthyroidism is causing your heart rate to be too fast, then vigorous exercise isn t a good idea. It would be more ideal to defer vigorous exercise until your hyperthyroidism is under control. I would favor long walks as exercise until then. ...Read more
