My thyroid u/s show mild cervical lymphadenopathy small nodule inferior posterior left lobe of thyroid Additional parathyroid adenoma/lymphadenopathy?

Specialists: These findings are best evaluated by a Thyroidologist/endocrinologist collaborating with a skilled head and neck surgeon. More than likely a needle biopsy of the thyroid nodule and possibly a ct scan of the neck will be recommended. The radiologist will thoroughly review these images with the specialists. ...Read more

Norm. tsh, pth 103, tpo ab 839, calcium 383, abnormal thyroid/para-heterogeneous parenchymal echotexture-thyroid,no nodule,ill defined hypoecoic lesion posterior to rt thyroid lobe,ill def para nodule?

Clarify: Hi. Your PTH is high and MEN-1 in the family. That calcium makes no sense unless it's a 24-hour urine calcium, in which case it's high. What's your serum calcium? Your thyroid autoantibodies are high, and your thyroid function is normal. MEN-1 is not assoc. with autoimmune thyroid disease, so that looks like maybe an unrelated finding. Most MEN-1 patients get primary hyperparathyroidism before 57 ...Read more

Thyroid nodule of the right lobe. Fna indicated follicular lesion-also hypothyroid, family history of malignant thyroid nodules. Options?

Thyroid nodule of the right lobe. Fna indicated follicular lesion-also hypothyroid, family history of malignant thyroid nodules. Options?

Surgery or...: A repeat biopsy combined with an afirma assay test may give you somewhat better guidance, but with your history and risk factors, surgery may be the best option. By the way, why are you taking generic T4 an Armour Thyroid together? There is no way to monitor the dosage properly as the lab tests will be unreliable. Brand name T4 is better, safer and more reliable. ...Read more

Thyroid ultrasound1.4x1.1x1.1cm rim calcified nodule left mid thyroid.Well circumscribe hypoechoic1.4x1.9x1cm nodule w/mild internal flow.Is it cancer?

Let's find out: This may be nothing but a colloid nodule in a developing nodular goiter. If the radiologist can't rule out cancer, you may be getting a fine-needle aspiration. With this pattern of calcification, it's unlikely to be an aggressive tumor even if it is cancer. ...Read more

Nodule in l thyroid vth faint focal calcification, multiple enlargd lymph nodes in l cervical regn(surgical level3).Papillary carcinoma vth metastasis?

Thyroid cancer: Did you have a biopsy? An fna (fine needle aspirate) could be performed where a thin needle is used to collect cells from the thyroid nodule. This sample is sent to a pathologist for examination. The presence of multiple nodes is concerning and deserves further workup. Hope this helps. Papillary carcinoma is common and treatable. ...Read more

Can follicular adenoma thyroid nodules be serious?

Can  follicular adenoma thyroid nodules be serious?

Yes.: A follicular adenoma may be a wolf in sheep's clothing, because cells from follicular adenomas and follicular carcinomas can look the same. Other follicular adenomas may have almost no chance of being cancers, but overproduce thyroid hormone, and need treatment to prevent harmful effects of hyperthyroidism on the bones, heart and other tissues. ...Read more

7mm hypoechoic thyroid nodule and pregnancy related hyperthyroidism. Nodule caused by this?

7mm hypoechoic thyroid nodule and pregnancy related hyperthyroidism. Nodule caused by this?

Thyroid nodule: The thyroid nodule is not likely to be caused by pregnancy. Transient mild hyperthyroidism can sometimes be seen in the first trimester but should resolve as long as it is not an underlying problem that has not been diagnosed. Would suggest repeating labs for thyroid function at 16-18 weeks. Should talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Is a heterogeneous thyroid nodule cancerous?

Possibly: Each thyroid nodule has an approx. 5% chance of malignancy, thus a heterogenous could be cancerous. Looking at it the other way, a heterogenous nodule has a 95% chance of not being cancerous. ...Read more

Can benign thyroid nodule become malignant?

Well...: A thyroid nodule is technically not "benign" unless it's surgically removed and the pathologist found no cancer in the specimen. A nodule that is still in your neck could still be cancerous despite a "benign" biopsy because not all of the nodule is cancerous. Sometime it's just a speck that is cancerous and was missed during the biopsy. That's why it's important to continue to follow the nodule. ...Read more

Can cystic thyroid nodule be cancerous?

Can cystic thyroid nodule be cancerous?

Unlikely but ask doc: Most of the the thyroid nodules are benign, cystic nodules are even more benign, but sometimes a small focus of cancer could be inside the cyst, to be sure most of the time after fine needle aspiration (fna) will be done by your doctor send for biopsy ( cytology ) to be sure it is benign.. ...Read more
