Pneumonia Associated With Thyroid Nodules And Vocal Cord Lesions
Multiple thyroid nodules some are very large & others are attached to my vocal cords. Hard to swallow, swollen neck & painful, took raditn pill. 3 yrs ago. Help?
See endocrinologist: You did not mention if you had an overactive thyroid 3 years ago when given radioactive iodine. I assume your thyroid levels are normal now. If you still have large thyroid nodules, and symptoms related to it, you may need surgery to effectively deal with the problem. It is best to see an endocrinologist for a complete evaluation of your thyroid.See 2 more doctor answers
The vocal cord is a short (about 1cm long) band of tissue in the larynx (aka "voice box"). It is paired, so everyone has 2, and they are located just below the "adam's apple." when you breathe, they are separated from each other. When you speak, they come together while your lungs push air (like a bellows or bagpipe) past them, and they vibrate, like a reed on a ...Read more
Generally not: Look for other causes. One uncommon cause is vocal cord dysfunction, which can feel just like an asthma attack, but is not relieved with inhalers. Esophageal spasm is another cause. Getting stuck on a preconceived diagnosis prevents the proper one from being made. See your doc, and describe your symptoms in detail to him, in order for the proper diagnosis to be made.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
Post-inflammatory node on my neck. Growing thyroid nodule that was previously ruled benign. What to do?
Consider re-biopsy: Benign nodules can grow just like malignant ones. Just because it is larger does not necessarily mean it is bad, but one should consider re-biopsy to verify that it is benign. Studies show that about 3-5% of nodules with benign pathology reports, are malignant on further testing.
Small thyroid nodule on right side of neck only; hasn't noticeably grown in five years. Chance it will ever grow? What percent of nodules do grow?
Variable: If the nodule is "small" and hasn't grown in five years, it is probably benign and not a problem. Keep watching it, and check an ultrasound as you probably will form further nodules in the future.
Have 6 monitored thyroid nodules. Last 2 days felt uncomfortable, bit pain front left neck. When touched, feels bit lumpy. Gland or thyroid problem?
No one can tell: It's often hard to make that distinction when the patient is present before the doctor. It's impossible to do that by description alone.See 1 more doctor answer
I had twice surgical operations of thyroid. Latest was at 2001. now in 2016.found a lump at my neck. Considered to be a thyroid nodule. What should I do?
Ultrasound: A thyroid Ultrasound would be the next step to determine the size and characteristics of the possible nodule. Then take it from there.
No research: On this as far as I can tell. However, I would assume it would be safe to have posterior cervical treatment with thyroid nodules. Whatever energy is deposited in the back of the neck with this treatment would not extend to the region of the thyroid.
I have thyroid nodules that have grown in number and size and now I am having neck pain. The nodules are less than 1 cm. I am very irritable also.?
The neck pain may: Be a result of these nodules or even secondary to metabolic issues related to these nodules. The pain may also be independent of the thyroid issue as well but this should be evaluated by your physician.See 1 more doctor answer
Thyroid nodule: Lymph nodes in the neck frequently swell and then regress during minor viral illnesses. So this may have nothing to do with a thyroid nodule. However, that thyroid nodule should be worked up. Ideally with an ultrasound-directed biopsy and you should be seen by an endocrinologist. A thyroid cancer can spread to lymph nodes, although the more likely explanation is a virus.
Known thyroid nodule, colloid area recurrent cysts, now pressure/pulling on neck especially lifting arm?
Surgery: Now that your thyroid is causing you symptoms, I would advise you to consult with a surgeon about having your thyroid gland removed.See 1 more doctor answer
I woke a few days ago with pain and swelling on the lower front of neck. I can feel restriction wben swallowing. Could my thyroid nodules be reason?
It is unlikely: It is unlikely for a thyroid nodule to cause pain and swelling. Pain/swelling in the midline front of the neck may represent thyroiditis, inflamed thyroid gland, or superinfected thyroglossal cyst. However, if you feel any lumps that are getting larger, or have been in your neck for longer than 2 weeks, see your doctor right away, as this can represent infected or possibly cancerous lymph nodes!See 1 more doctor answer
Soft nodule on back of neck, if touched, I experience vertigo. Lump is directly behind thyroid nodule on front of neck. Are they connected issues?
Can a neck MRI show thyroid nodules/cancer? Enlarged thyroid, upcoming routine MRI for ms... Could the test look at both issues?
Hello I recently found a lump on my neck I went for ultra sound and it confermed a thyroid nodule size 2cm by 3 CM non cystic and hypervascular?
Biopsy: Hi. Assuming your thyroid function is normal (not hyperthyroid), the thyroid nodule you describe needs fine needle aspiration biopsy for cytology (and hopefully genetic testing) to see if it's cancer. If it's not cancer, you can leave it in and just follow it, and thus avoid surgery for a non-cancerous tumor. I have to assume that whoever ordered the ultrasound has told you that you need FNAB.
I had 2 tests done on my neck for my thyroid, the ultrasound say a thyroid nodule but CT scan says enlarge thyroid no nodule which test more accurate?
Ultrasound: Is much more acurrate.Get a more detailed answer ›
I have a 3.5cm thyroid nodule with lower neck swelling, but normal TSH, T3, T4 blood levels. What could be causing this?
Goiter or Cancer?: A Thyroud mass can be benign in which case it is called a Goiter. There is about 10% risk that it can be a cancer. You should see your physician for further trests such as an ultrasound and or a Needle biopsy. Blood tests only show if your thyoid functions are normal or not. Since these are normal, you now need to go to the next step of further evaluation to find the cause of your Thyroid nodule.See 1 more doctor answer
I had a neck CT scan an it showed that I now have numerous thyroid nodules and a cyst. Since I'm having compressive symtoms do I need to have surgery?
Probably: The tyroid gland sits right on top of the larynx, trachea. As it enlarges due to the formation of multiple nodues, if they are not large and no compressive symptoms occur, one treats conservatively, possibly using hormone replacement if needed. If too large some form of cytoreduction may be needed.
