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

What is a degenerative colloid nodule near thyroid?

Benign: This is a fluid filled thyroid nodule that is degenerating or in other words deteriorating on its own. It's completely benign and not worrisome in most cases. However just remember that fnas (fine needle aspirations) are accurate in 90-95% of cases. ...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?

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

How long do thyroid goiters and nodules take to develop?

How long do thyroid goiters and nodules take to develop?

Goiter: Thyroid nodules and goiters are slow growing and take years to grow. However, there could be a more rapid increase in size due to tumors, inflammation, pregnancy, bleeding within the nodules, or thyrotoxicosis (hyper functioning gland). For this reason, once diagnosed, most physicians recommend thyroid nodules/goiters be monitored with annual examination and thyroid ultrasound. ...Read more

Nodules on my daughter's thyroid. How to get it removed?

Nodules on my daughter's thyroid. How to get it removed?

See endocrinologist: Thyroid nodules, especially in a young person, need to be evaluated carefully, with ultrasound and possible biopsy. Sometimes, autoimmune thyroid disease (eg hashimotos/graves) can give a nodular appearance, and if so you don't need surgery. Best to see your endocrinologist for evaluation. If surgery is needed, you need an experienced thyroid surgeon. ...Read more

What does it mean when hypoechoic nodules keep forming on thyroid?

Multinodular Thyroid: Usually this is seen in patients with multinodular glands. If the thyroid is enlarged we say multinodular goiter. Most of the time, the nodules are benign but enlargement, calcifications, irregular margins and other findings may suggest the need for biopsy. ...Read more

What is a colloid nodule? Does a benign c on a thyroid has to be removed?

Could you tell me what happens if my multiple thyroid solid nodules unremoved?

Multinodular goiter: If you have multiple thyroid nodules, you first need to determine if thyroid cancer. This can be done with a careful ultrasound and needle biopsies. If this is negative, and the gland is not obstructing anything, you may need no other treatment other than to have it reevaluated periodically. If you decide on surgery, chose a surgeon who does this a lot and has a good record. ...Read more

Which type of risk am I taking by not having a thyroid lobectomy to diagnose a nodule?

Which type of risk am I taking by not having a thyroid lobectomy to diagnose a nodule?

Talk to doctor: Most thyroid nodules are benign. There are some features on an ultrasound that are more, or less, consistent with cancer. A needle biopsy may detect cancer cells. Balancing these, one has to make a decision to remove the nodule or watch it. This is best done with your endocrinologist and a good thyroid surgeon. ...Read more

Several adenomatous nodules on my thyroid measuring up to 0.4cm should I be concerned?

No: Nodules in the thyroid are common and people tend to get more as they get older. 90-95% are not cancerous and if the largest is 0.4cm then it is too small to even biopsy. D/w your doctor but no need to worry, just have a repeat ultrasound in 6-12 mths to make sure the nodules are not growing. ...Read more

I have a hyper active thyroid with a nodule you can see in my neck it has been left untreated for at least 9 months?

Need thyroid lab: It sounds like you have a thyroid nodule that shows increased uptake on a thyroid scan ("hot" nodule). These nodules are almost always benign. However, if is causing your thyroid blood level to be high, it still needs treatment. If you have a high thyroid level and the nodule is not "hot", it would need biopsy. ...Read more

Nodule on my right thyroid over year grew from 1.2cm to 1.6cm. Left lobe nodule 1.1cm to 1.4cm. Should I be concerned?

Yes: Sorry to say it like that but you need to definitely have this checked out. It seems like you have had it looked at on MRI or something to know the size, an endocrinologist or thyroid surgeon needs to see you for this. What are your other syptoms? Those matter as well. ...Read more

A complex partially solid nodule is seen in the right thyroid love measuring 17 x 19 x 24 mm. The lesion appears hypovascular.?

Additional workup: I am presuming this was seen on an Ultrasound. The next step would usually be to an Ear Nose and Throat surgeon to do a biopsy as they are the specialty typically operating on the thyroid. There is another test called a thyroid uptake scan used to assess nodules but because there is only one and it is large enough to biopsy not likely needed. Findings on biopsy decide if the nodule needs removal. ...Read more

I have a single 12mm nodule (blends in with surrounding tissue) on my thyroid. I am seeing a specialist soon...should I have any tests done before?

Many: Thyroid nodule is either solid or cystic and that could be determined by ultrasound
then if solid it classified as hot, cold, or warm based on the up take on thyroid nuclear scan
we usually worry about cold single solid nodule in young person potential for cancer is higher than the others
cystic lesion 99%are benign unless it is mixed
specialist might perform fine needle aspiration

I have a nodule on my thyroid and it has a white circle around it showed on the us they did a us guided aspiration today but didn't get any cells out?

Eggshell: What you are describing is an "eggshell calcification." this was once thought to indicate a benign nodule but it is no longer so. Many malignant nodules can have this feature, especially if it's a broken eggshell with interruption of the rim calcification. If the first biopsy yielded no cells, you could do it again at a later date with a bigger gauge needle. Good luck. ...Read more
