Thyroid sono showed heterogeneous gland with multinodular goiter(positive hashimoto's diagnosis;on synthroid)-follow up sono when?
Nodules hypothyroid: The most common cause of low thyroid is autoimmune Hashimoto's thyroiditis. The lumps in the thyroid can and do exist with the Hashimoto's but don't cause the underlying problem. It is possible that a thyroid gland can become so full of thyroid nodules that it becomes unfunctional, but this is unusual. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Multinodular goiter: Hi. Your hyper-functioning nodule is producing thyroid hormone without pituitary regulation. Since you have multiple nodules, chances are they're all overproducing thyroid hormone (aka "hot" nodules). Your radio-iodine scan will tell. Any "cold" nodule of certain size will need to be evaluated to make sure it's not cancer (you may not have any cold nodules). Treatment with 131-Iodine is easy. ...Read more
Yes.: A follicular adenoma may be a wolf in sheep's clothing, because cells from follicular adenomas and follicular carcinomas can look the same. Other follicular adenomas may have almost no chance of being cancers, but overproduce thyroid hormone, and need treatment to prevent harmful effects of hyperthyroidism on the bones, heart and other tissues. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Well...: A thyroid nodule is technically not "benign" unless it's surgically removed and the pathologist found no cancer in the specimen. A nodule that is still in your neck could still be cancerous despite a "benign" biopsy because not all of the nodule is cancerous. Sometime it's just a speck that is cancerous and was missed during the biopsy. That's why it's important to continue to follow the nodule. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Thyroid nodule: The thyroid nodule is not likely to be caused by pregnancy. Transient mild hyperthyroidism can sometimes be seen in the first trimester but should resolve as long as it is not an underlying problem that has not been diagnosed. Would suggest repeating labs for thyroid function at 16-18 weeks. Should talk to your doctor. ...Read more
