Pleomorphic Adenoma Hard Palate
1st FNA is benign follicular lesion, u/s ;hypoechoic thyroid nodule with few small calcifications, 2nd FNA ; hard consistency solid nodule,%ofcancer?
Talk to YOUR MD: You clearly have a thyroid problem, and this needs to be discussed in context of the bigger clinical picture. If you have had FNA done, you have a doc following you. See them and ask what this means in your case and what should be done next. Lab results never occur in isolation. They occur in people, and the whole person has to be considered when making a diagnosis and treatment plan. Best wishes! ...Read more
We use the term pleomorphic often in pathology; it literally means "many shapes". Pleomorphic cells in a tumor may tell of the genetic instability that's central to cancer, but the benign pleomorphic adenoma of the salivary glands merely has many different tissue types. The ...Read more

3 thyroid nodules, hypoechoic solid nodule with few tiny calcified 1st FNA is benign follicular lesion and 2nd is benign follicular nodule,possible?
Thyroid follicles: Most likely, the ultrasound is picking up benign follicular cysts, or areas of "colloid" (where thyroid hormone is made) arranged in a circular pattern or nodule. From the description (& the 2 FNA biopsies) it's unlikely to be cancer. In certain parts of the world (40% of it), iodine deficiency is common & thyroid nodules are prominent. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/thyroid-nodules ...Read more

3cm hypoechoic solid vascular thyroid nodule with a cluster of hurthle cells, fna benign, follow up ultrasound now shows microcalcifications. Cancer?
Not necessarily...: The fact that FNA was reported as benign, the nodule is unlikely to be malignant. Small droplets of benign colloid often mimic "microcalcificatins" of papillary tumor, hence caution is advised. I would suggest repeating the FNA, and consider also collecting samples for gene profiling studies, such as, those manufactured by Veracyte and Asuragen (Note:I have no financial/other interest.) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My mom has needle aspiration biopsy and the results were: follicular neoplasm adenoma vs carcinoma; adenomatous colloid goiter with hyperplastic chang?
It could be cancer/T: Thyroid cancer can show up like this. On the other hand benign Thyroid nodules are common but FNA may not be adequate to make a correct diagnosis. You should seek an expert opinion from a Thyroid Cancer doctor. Such specialists are found in bigger Medical centers or in a Cancer hospital where you could first go to an Endocrinologist or head and Neck surgeon for advice. ...Read more
Thyroid nodules: Are almost always benign (not cancerous) but should be followed over months to years for increase in size or change in consistency. labs can be followed as well. Your doctor with the help of an Endocrinologist specialist can help you decide if a FNA -fine needle aspiration is necessary. If they get very big and/or obstruct nearby tissues a Surgeon ENT can help determine if removal is necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
3.5cm thyroid nodule, ultrasound found solid mass and fluid filled cysts w/ calcifications. Lymph node near carotid. Could it be cancer? still waiting
1.3cm thyroid nodule with multiple punctate calcification, ear pain, lump feeling in throat, cancer chance?
Solitary, solid nodule with intranodular flow and follicular neoplasm cells. Afirma came back suspicious. What's likelyhood of malignancy?
Thyroid nodule with rare cluster ofoverlapping enlarged cells, grooves and pale chromatin. Rebiopsy or surgery? 2.9x1.1x2.2 cm
You have a choice: The results you are sharing are benign. The cells were likely from a fna biopsy. The size of your thyroid nodule meets criteria for removal, greater than 2.5 cm. Okay to talk to your doc and your surgeon about risk/benefits of waiting a few months with repeat ultrasound versus surgery now to remove one side of your thyroid. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Thyroid u/s finding suspicious for malignancy with small flecks of calcification in irregular hypoechoic solid nodule but 3 biopsies are benign
"Suspicious": doesn't mean there is cancer, it only means there is some probability of cancer, which could be as low as 10%. Biopsy is the gold standard. If the biopsy is negative and shows a specific benign process that accounts for the nodule(concordant), then it is likely not cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Left breast cancer in 2004 stage 2 hormone+ . Feb 2013 mammo triang shaped nodule in right breast typical of benign lesion as lymph node. Take it out?
Intramammary : lymph nodes are normal incidental findings on mammography. If it is definitively a lymph node by mammo criteria, and if there are no suspicious features, then no further workup or follow up is necessary. It is considered a benign finding. If there is some uncertainty about whether it is a lymph node, or if there are atypical or suspicious features, additional imaging and/or biopsy may be needed ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hard,painful mass(enl.supracl lymph node,soft tissue,musle), 2" x 3"right fossa supraclav.behind sternocloid muscle.TB,lymphoma ruled out.Suggestion?
Probable tumor node: In the supraclavicular fossa few lesions arise spontaneously. Most have spread. Thyroid Ca can spread to that site as well as tumors of breast having reached level III of axilla. Other nodes can enlarge on the left side as metastasis from abdomen pelvis travelling up the lymphatic pathway to neck ...Read more
