Thyroid Nodule 25 Years Old Cancer Dying
I'm 28 years old, had a thyroid nodule for 2 years. Finally got a biopsy. How likely is it to be cancer?
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
My 54 year old sister has 2 thyroid nodules that are heterogeous and calcified. Is this cancer? How serious is this?
It depends: There are many factors which affect a given nodule's risk of being a thyroid cancer. These include size, and other features visible on us (ultrasound) and patient age. Because women have many more being benign thyroid nodules than men, the risk for any one nodule is higher in a man. For a typical 1-2 centimeter (1/2-3/4 inch), that risk might be about 4% in a woman, or about 8% in a man. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If you have 20% cancer in your thyroid nodule but it remove already it's possible all of your body have a cancer now feb nxt year ?
What are you asking?: Where did you hear about "20% cancer"? I'm a pathologist and that means nothing to me. The nodule's gone. Most of these never come back. If they do, they're usually pokey and manageable. You're not going to become a cancer cripple any time soon. Truth is, you need to have a talk with your physicians -- they may assume you know things about which you still have questions. Ask away. ...Read more
1 year thyroid nodule follow-up revealed a new thyroid nodule and the other one is no longer there. They were both hypoechoic. Chance this is cancer?
It is usually benign: The risk for a thyroid nodule to be cancerous actually is only 5-6%- and majority of thyroid nodule is benign. Having said that, the risk of developing thyroid cancer will be higher if you have significant risk like previous exposure to radiation to the neck area at early age ( childhood), family history of thyroid cancer etc. You need to continue to f/u with your doctor and sono as indicated. ...Read more
U/s confirmed thyroid nodules requires bx. More than a few&a couple over 1.5cm. Thyroid disease is that addison's?Highwbc, plate?On chance its cancer
Not 100%: If the nodule is still in your neck, there is no way to know that it is 100% benign. Even if you had a biopsy before and it came back benign, there is still a chance that the spot of cancer was missed during the first biopsy. This is why we don't "poo poo" it away after 1 biopsy but continue to follow the thyroid nodule to monitor for size changes. All said, the risk of cancer is very small. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
