Complex thyroid nodule... Negative for malignancy ... Adenomatoid nodule with resolving hemorrhage? What? And is it still possible for it to cancerous

Complex thyroid nodule... Negative for malignancy ... Adenomatoid nodule with resolving hemorrhage? What? And is it still possible for it to cancerous

Low risk: The risk of malignancy in a thyroid nodule is low, especially after one negative biopsy but it is not 0%. That's why u still need to follow this nodule in time with another ultrasound to make sure it is not growing or changing significantly. If it does, u will need another biopsy or consider taking it out. The nodule u have had blood inside it which had been absorbed, thus "resolving hemorrhage". ...Read more

Throid nodules. Upper right lobe hot, lower right lobe cold 3.4cm. Does that mean I have hyper and hypo thyriodism at the same time?

Throid nodules. Upper right lobe hot, lower right lobe cold 3.4cm. Does that mean I have hyper and hypo thyriodism at the same time?

No, the activity: of individual nodules on a thyroid scan may not, in and of themselves, imply hyper or hypothyroidism, which are diagnoses based on systemic symptoms and blood levels. Certainly, however, an autonomous hot nodule could result in hyperthyroidism. Cold nodules have a higher chance of malignancy(although still relatively low), and biopsy may be indicated. ...Read more

What does a nodule in your thyroid feel like?

What does a nodule in your thyroid feel like?

Depends on size: You might not feel anything if it's small. Otherwise, it could feel like a lump, a node and if it's big enough, it can feel like a growth/mass on your neck. If it's liquid, like a cyst, it could be soft. If it's a solid growth, it could be rubbery and if it's calcified, it could have a rock/hard feel to it. ...Read more

Is ill defined nodule in thyroid risky?

It depends: Thyroid nodules are common but most of them are benign. If you have shown it to your doctor, ask his/her advice for future monitoring. A sonogram(Ultrasound test) is one good way of following it and see if it grows in size. If it is clearly present and growing over 6 to 12 months, a needle biopsy should be considered. Your doctor can refer you to a Thyroid specialist(Endocrinologist) if you asked. ...Read more

Nodules in the right lobe of my thyroid, what to do?

See Endocrinologist: These nodules, presumably discovered on ultrasound, may be nothing, may be serious, may be "hot" or "cold", may be from Hashimotos, etc. You need to see someone who can sort this out, and that is an Endocrinologist, best one who does his/her own needle biopsies (if indeed that is needed). ...Read more

Can a solid nodule 1.1 CM on thyroid go away on its own?

Not likely: If it is solid and solitary, it is probably a neoplasm, most likely an adenoma. But it could also be cancer, so have it checked out. Even if it is, most thyroid cancers have excellent prognosis with surgical treatment alone. ...Read more
