I had biopsies of thyroid nodules today my neck muscles are hurting more and feel tight what should I look for if something did go wrong my throat is sore my ears hurt real bad here and there when I move to get up

You: You should have no serious problems from fine needle aspiration biopsy but if you have continued pain or swelling call the doctor who performed the biopsies. You might be achy for about a day. You can feel pain in the ear because of how your nerves work even though it was your thyroid and your ear was not biopsied. This is called referred pain. Sometimes people will tense their neck muscles because of pain elsewhere in the neck. I hope you feel better today and the biopsies are all negative (no cancer). ...Read more

On 12/18, I am having a 2.2cm enhancing lipomatous nodule superior to the a/c joint removed. It is subcu-above muscle. What is recovery time? Can I play hockey 3 days later? Can I scuba in 7 days?

Could 4mm lung nodule cause fatigue&muscle loss for 1year? Tested positive on early cdtlung blood test. Sodium slight low cortisol slight high. Advice?

See an oncologist: Now is the time to find out if that nodule is, indeed, cancer, and a specialist's recommendations are the way to go. If so, that could be causing your fatigue. The muscle loss may be due to de-conditioning (not using the muscles enough), due to your fatigue. If it IS cancer, you are catching it at a very small size and there is a much better chance for a cure! ...Read more

Early cdt lung blood tests positive for P53 autoantibody 4mm nodule on CT, muscle loss&fatigue. Worried about sclc but doc says no concerns. Thoughts?

Mgt: The antibody may be associated with lung cancer. I would suggest having samples obtained from sputum and/or lung lavage. Three samples may be sent for Cytologic analysis.

Risk factors such as smoking history and family history should be considered. ...Read more

Can you tell me which exercise (s) work the same muscles as a chin-up?

Many: The chin up involves your forearms (wrist flexors/grip), biceps and lattisimus dorsi (back). So pulls up are close but more difficult related to the wrist pronation. "Lat pull downs" are a mimic for pull ups (but seated). Rowing motions, like seated cable rows, bent over dumbbell rows or inverted rows, will also work similar muscles but at different angles. ...Read more

Thyroid nodules: Who did the diagnosis, you and confirmed by a DR.?
You require a Thyroid scan with 1131, and a fine needle aspiration biopsy.
