My thyroid levels are normal but my thyroid gland fluctuates in swelling. Have a list of symptoms and cysts on my thyroid. What could be causing this?
Common: Small cysts and nodules of the thyroid are common in the population, especially in women. As long as they are small, they have no clinical significance and can be followed. It is unlikely that your thyroid fluctuates much in size from day to day or even week to week. Sometimes people have a feeling in their neck or a fat pad that appears to change, but it is not their thyroid.
Today I had thyroid gland biposy with fine needel. How common is a major bleed and how long am I at risk of that bleeding? What are the symptoms?
FNA thyroid: You would usually know that there was bleeding soon after the biopsy with swelling and pain. Rare complication.
Lab test essential: A child with hypoactive thyroid may have constipation, delayed growth, poor cognitive skills, large tongue etc. However, clinical signs and symptoms are not a good indicator of thyroid function. If there is any doubt, easily available and not too expensive tests, e.g., TSH and free T4 are essential for a proper work-up.See 2 more doctor answers
I have pain in throat. Mabye thyroid gland when touching. No other symptoms. I smoke 1 pack of cigaret.?
Throat pain: A sore throat is likely due to pharyngitis (viral is most likely; however, if fevers and persistent you would want to rule out bacterial). Smoking is also an irritant and can contribute to throat discomfort. Quitting smoking is best for your health in general. If you can feel your thyroid gland, have a doctor exam it - they will be able to determine if it needs further evaluation/tests.See 2 more doctor answers
I am being tested for a nodule "outside" the thyroid gland, not "in" it. I have several symptoms for the last 2 years. Throat or thyroid?
Nodule: Could be many different things including ectopic thyroid nodule, parathyroid gland or lymph node. An fna (fine needle aspirate) may be helpful and would allow a pathologist to evaluate cells from this nodule. Best of luck.
I have sore throat. Have pain when touching on throat. Mabye thyroid gland. No fever or other symptom. Can it be HIV symptom or other?
Tender thyroid?: Hi. If your thyroid gland is tender, that's called a thyroiditis. You should see your doctor to have that evaluated. Some HIV meds have been associated with thyroiditis. Talk with your HIV doc about other possibilities. Good luck!
Can dental problems be the cause of thyroid gland disorders - either hypo or hyperthyroidism? Is a symptom a click in the throat when you swallow?
No: Usually dental problems don't cause thyroid issues. In some cases, the thyroid gland can get large enough to have some mass effect on the esophagus but not a click per se. See a doctor soon for further evaluation.
Size: If it's small and centrally located, you might not feel it. Ultrasound is the best way to "pick up" or detect these small nodules.See 2 more doctor answers
Endocrine Gland: It is an endocrine gland which produces thyroxin hormone which controls the metabolism in every cell in the body. It produces 80 to 90% T4 and 10 to 20 %T3. These control rate of metabolism and affect the growth and rate of functions of many cells in the body it is located in the neck. It also controls body's temperature
Glands grow: If not all of the thyroid was removed, the remnant will likely grow back, especially if the TSH was slightly high or normal (tsh is a stimulus to growth). Surgery usually does not remove every last cell of the thyroid, even if it is called a "total thyroidectomy". See your endocrinologist.
