Thyroid Fabric Tumor
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
I have hashimoto thyroidism, pituitary tumor, seizures, lesion on my brain and had multiple concussions. My calves are hurting bad what could this be?
Wow- a lot!: This can either be as simple as muscular if you have had any changes in excercise or even trauma (fall, seizure). Or it can be neurological, neuropathic pain due to your comorbidities or even the brain lesion. Or vascular such as a DVT or blood clot in your veins. I would recommend that you get evaluated at your earliest convenience. ...Read more
4 types of cancers: There are 4 types of thyroid cancer (ca) thyroid follicular cells that make thyroid hormone can form papillary ca (cells look abnormal, best outpook), follicular ca (look normal, pushing outside tumor or into blood/lymph vessels, good outlook), and anaplastic ca (very abnormal, poor outlook).

What does it mean when one thyroid is larger than the other? I heard it could be a tumor. Can this be true?

How long does it take to perform a subtotal thyroidectomy and removal of a tumor on the right side of the thyroid?

To answer the question: thyroid levels can be high with a tumor secreting thyroid stimulating hormone (tsh), normal with a smaller (~1-3cm) nontsh secreting tumor, or usually low with a larger (>2.5cm) nontsh secreting tumor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have no thyroid, TT and tumor removal in 2012, i have slow growing jugular lymph nodes (2 of concern @ 2.1cm and 2.6cm) ?
Possible mets: In contrast to most H&N malignancies, thyroid Ca does not undergo a concomitant radical neck dissection. Rather nodes are plucked from the adjacent jugular veins. If no abnormal nodes noted at surgery the procedure encompasses the thyroid gland only. At 3 yrs. p.o. if jugular nodes are now noted , bx should be performed and if positive, the jugular veins should be dissected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
