Nodule Tendon Back Neck
What exercises can I do to stop or minimize my neck from cracking all the time due to severely hyper extended tendons (lower back of my head)?
None: Don't worry about noise or cracking. Instead, worry about numbness, tingling, weakness & pain. But don't worry about noise. There are no exercises to decrease noise or cracking. But anyone should go see his/her doctor if movement is painful or if any above noted symptoms. Also a good idea if any recent trauma or injury prior to new onset of cracking. ...Read more
I have a pea sized hard painless immovable nodule at bottom of neck along right side of top of spine. It's been there for years? Any thoughts or sugg
Probably b9 nodule: If you've had this for years and it has never caused you pain or discomfort, most likely it is a benign nodule. Unless it changes in size, color, firmness, or starts to cause pain or symptoms, it should not worry you. You have more important things in life to keep on your mind. If it truly worries you, see a general surgeon about getting a biopsy - they'll remove it & tell you what it is (fibrosis ...Read more
I have subcutanous nodules that have come up in thigh, back, and now neck. They do not originate in skin;deeper. Benign or cancerous?
Get a biopsy: Subcutaneous nodules can be caused by cysts, abscesses, lymph nodes, lipomas (fatty tumors) and many other causes. However, cancer can also show up as nodules under the skin and further evaluation is needed by your doctor. A biopsy of the nodule should let you know if there is a reason for concern.

What can I do if my thyroid nodule in my neck biospy came back bengin is there anything to worry about?
Needle or Surgical?: Was the biopsy a needle biopsy or an excisional surgical biopsy? If surgical, then the nodule was removed and it is benign and you probably have little to worry about. If a needle biospy then you need to know if there was adequate tissue for diagnosis. If not, then you can't be sure there is nothing there. Sometimes a repeat biopsy is suggested or a followup sonogram of the nodule. ...Read more

Went in for followup u/s for left thyroid nodule. Came back as nothing on left but new nodule on right. Worried they got the sides mixed up. Possible?
Not likely: Ultrasound exams are performed by trained technicians and supervised by physicians on site, so a mix up is unlikely. It is, however, common for many people to have multinodular goiter, meaning many cysts on both sides of the gland. These are usually benign & require no further evaluation. If concerned, a needle biopsy can be performed. ...Read more
I had blood work done after imaging showed 2 nodules (thyroid). Tests came back in normal range. But TPO (ab) was 647.8, is this norm? What's it mean?
TPO antibodies: Different labs have different ranges of "normal" for TPO antibodies, so check the normal range. I think this is high, however, which suggests Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Hashi causes scarring and fibrosis of the thyroid, which often causes the appearance of "nodules" on ultrasound. Eventually, the thyroid will probably fail and you will become hypothyroid. Best to see an Endocrinologist. ...Read more
Thyroid nodule came back negative but cells are suspicious for hurthle cell neoplasm. What does that mean?
Surgical biopsy: Hi. Going just on what you've told us, you probably need a surgical biopsy. A Hurthle cell neoplasm can be either benign or cancer, and the cytopathology often cannot make the distinction. Therefore, to exclude or confirm cancer will require a surgical biopsy. But I don't have the data. Your doc will tell you what's needed. Good luck! ...Read more

I have bilateral partially cystic thyroid nodules. Biopsy done of the larger one, came back "follicular lesion of unknown origin" what does that mean?
Variable meaning: Follicular‐patterned lesions of the thyroid are common; these include hyperplastic/adenomatoid nodules, follicular adenoma, follicular carcinoma and follicular variants of papillary carcinoma. Repeat biopsy with a sample sent for a genetic afirma assay may give additional useful information. In addition, discuss with your endocrinologist. ...Read more
Diagnosed with multiple thyroid nodules and going back to talk about options or biopsy. What options are there other than biopsy?
Several options: Belfry: the fact that there are multiple nodules means that it is likely a benign multinodular goiter. Sometimes these are just watched with serial ultrasound exams as well as following your bloodwork. A biopsy is a fine needle aspiration and is minimally invasive. It is well-tolerated and you should do it if there is an atypical or dominant nodule that stands out from the rest. ...Read more

1.7 CM thyroid "isoechoic solid nodule" mid-lobe. 2 fnas both came back non-diagnostic. Told next step is my choice. Should I have the lobe removed?
Probably not...: The fact that 2 FNA's came back as non-diagnostic, and that it is isoechoic suggest that the nodule is most likely benign. I would suggest going to a different facility (with good reputation) and repeating the FNA. Alternatively, you can wait another 6 months or so and repeat the US. ...Read more

Probably not: This most likely represents benign findings but one of the nodules should be biopsied. ...Read more

I had a FNA on Thyroid, 1 Nodule came back normal but the other 1 is lying too deeply & next to an Artery, so could not get biopsy. What will happen?
Watch both: Do not remove or try to biopsy second nodule but repeat CAT scans to assure 2nd lesion not growing. Most of the cases of 2 nodules result in appearance of a 3rd or 4th nodule as part of multi nodular goiter. If dramatic increase in size such a 2x in the next 4-6 months would consider open bx or excision and then treat accordingly. ...Read more
