Nodules In Muscles
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

Why is there a need for immunohistochemistry: smooth muscle actin after I got the diagnosis: cellular spindle cell lesion favor nodular fascitis?
To help diagnosis: Pathologists often use immunohistochemistry to help in arriving at a diagnosis. For softn tissue tumors immunohistochemistry can help better characterize the type of tumor...For example if is smooth muscle derived or a neural tumor etc. In terms of nodular fasciitis, it can morphologically appear similar to some smooth muscle tumors and some other fibroblastic tumors so ihc may be used. ...Read more

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. This should be further discussed with your physician since there are other details of your history that are missing. Risk factors such as smoking history and family history should be considered. ...Read more

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.

I had u/s on thyroid and it found 2 nodules. Both on left - 1 at interpolar region and 1 at lower left pole. Where are these locations? Close together?
Who did the diagnosis, you and confirmed by a DR.?
You require a Thyroid scan with 1131, and a fine needle aspiration biopsy.
About 1/10 % of nodules may became cancerous, therefore an endocrinologist should see you. Medicine is advancing by leaps and bounds but it can still be difficult to determine if a thyroid nodule is cancerous or not. Now, people with thyroid nodules can benefit from the latest diagnostic technology. Ask your doctor about Afirma® Thyroid FNA Analysis, a proven solution that may dramatically affect how your nodule is diagnosed and treated. ...Read more

This is caused by repetitive irritation of the skin area leading to excessive scarring -thus the bump or nodule.

Yes: Skeletal muscle develops based on need and demand. Obviously, all you have to do is open a newspaper or men's magazine to see that some people have too much muscle, and are limited in their ability to move their joints, etc. People who use artificial means to increase muscle mass may not realize that the heart also builds up thickness, and this may put the person at risk of cardiac problems. ...Read more
