What does benign follicular cells in mixed micro macrofollicular pattern, focal hurthle cell changes histiocytes mean? 3cm nodule on thyroid fast grow

Discuss: For a 3 CM fast growing thyroid mass, there is a higher chance of false negative with the biopsy.

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.
