Thyroid Nodule 8 Year Old
My 8 yr old girl went into the ER for a fall. They did a Cscan & found a 3mm thyroid nodule. I am worried, especially after googling. Odds of cancer?
8 yr old grl had CT which shows 3mm thyroid nodule. It doesn't show up in radiology report; but, does show up in the doctor's notes. Why not in report?
Ask the Radiologist.: You should pose this question to the Radiologist who issued the report in question. Perhaps the nodule did not correlate with the girl's symptoms. Perhaps the nodule was of such size that it was considered insignificant. Perhaps it was missed by the Radiologist & the doctor was thorough enough to look through the images & find it (double-checking other's work). In any case, it's unknown at this pt ...Read more

My boy is 2 year and 8 month old. He was found having a 4~6 mm thyroid nodule under ultrosound exam. I’m so worried. Is there any chance it go away?
Please go back to the pediatrician and discuss whether or not treatment is needed.
Hope all goes well - keep me informed please. ...Read more
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 more
12 year old had throbbing, pain, and discomfort on the left side of neck for 2 weeks. Doctor than found 2 thyroid nodules. What caused the pain??
Mass effect: Pain is usually a clue that something in your anatomy isn't working quite as it should. The nodules can cause pain due to the mass effect of the increased size of the nodules. It needs to be evaluated ...Read more
I'm 28 years old, had a thyroid nodule for 2 years. Finally got a biopsy. How likely is it to be cancer?
How is it a 20 yr old (so called benign) thyroid nodule have new calcification and may now be cancerous? Why not take it out years ago? Very upsettin
Need bx: Thyroid nodules are not uncommon. The rule is that multiple nodules are considered related to goiters and are benign. A solitary nodule has the potential of being or becoming cancerous. If I find a solitary nodule that is cold I suggest removing it. It can be a benign adenoma, but if left can convert to a carcinoma over time. ...Read more
I am having pain and trouble swallowing from a possible thyroid nodule. What can I do? What is a nodule and is it cancerous? I have hypothyroidism and am on medicine and am 26 years old
How often by ultrasound should a 60 old m ale be checking a 8 year old stable likely benign subcentimeter (< 1cm) thyroid nodules? Is it once a year?
Hypochondria: You have a very small nodule unchanged for 8 years, perfectly normal blood pressure and otherwise no medical issues, but you've had MRI and MRA of brain. WHY? There is no reason to have any scheduled follow-up scan of your thyroid. If concerned, biopsy but no reason to keep having procedures. Do you suffer from anxiety, OCD or hypochondria? ...Read more
My ultrasound showed thyroid nodules that are "interdeterminant" the report says with a follow up ultrasound needed in 1 year. What is that?
"Indeterminate": Is not a very specific conclusion, and without any further description or review of the images, it is difficult to speculate what is the basis for the follow up recommendation. Best bet is to talk to your doc about the results. ...Read more
What to do if I have 5 solid thyroid nodules more than a year ago, what happens if I left them untreated?
Dr said follow up u/s in one year for 7 mm hypoechoic thyroid nodule. Is this too long to wait? Or normal?
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
How often do I need to schedule an Ultrasound for my Thyroid nodule? Each year? So far I've had two over two years, and it was small and benign
Yearly is sufficient: Yearly is sufficient. If the lesion remains stable in size, three years in a row, you may reduce the frequency in consultation with your doctor. ...Read more
7mm thyroid nodule seen on u/s, then endo did own u/s and didn't see anything. Said I could get f/u u/s in 1 year? Too long to wait? Been 10 months.
4mm hypoechoic thyroid nodule disappeared by 1 year follow up ultrasound. They didn't see any nodule on the ultrasound. Is this normal?
New 7mm hypoechoic thyroid nodule found on ultrasound. I had a 4 mm hypoechoic nodule that disappeared a year ago. Why do I keep getting these?
Thyroid nodule measured 3.1 CM and both lobes around 6 CM last year. FNA was normal. Now nodule is 3.6 CM and both lobes are now around 4 cm. Causes?
You need: A biopsy with gene expression profileGet a more detailed answer ›
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
Thyroid nodule from 4x4x3 mm's to 6×5×3mm's in 1 year follow up. Is that something to worried about size change? Normal tsh's. do I need biopsy?
Less than 1 cm: Thyroid nodules are benign > 90% of the time. A small change of 2 mm may simply be variation in measurement. Additionally all tumors benign and malignant increase in size. In general growths less than 1 cm are usually monitored with ultrasound and a needle biopsy is performed if growing > 1 cm or sooner with concerning findings/calcifications on ultrasound. ...Read more
solid thyroid nodule was 3.3 last year now 3.5 cm. Fna biopsy normal in 2011. should I be concern. Endo said see me one yr with ultrasound. Worried?
Hashimito's plus thyroid nodule. FNA benign 1 year ago. Repeat ultrasound shows thickened isthmus from what was 4 MM to 6MM. Is this same as goiter?
Hashimoto's thyroiditis is chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis based on autoimmunity. On gross examination, there is often a hard goitre, not painful.
Goiter is an abnormal swelling of thyroid resulting in a lump in the neck. It arises from many causes, including under- or overactive thyroid, iodine deficiency and, rarely, thyroid cancer If nodule enlarges and is cold may need bx again ...Read more
You answered a question a while back about 2 thyroid nodules that were found last year. As 1 is lying too deep and near a Artery they were unsuccessful getting a clear sample using FNA. They are going monitor me 6 monthly intervals and do ultra sound scan
Probably benign: We are concerned when there is a solitary cold nodule of the thyroid. This usually represents an adenoma with a potential for malignant transformation. When there is more than one nodule this most likely is multinodular goiter. Aspiration is not always correct in terms of interpretation. If the scan does not show enlargement then on can probably wait with follow up scan ...Read more
Not likely: Benign thyroid nodules almost always remain that way. The more likely instance is that a malignant nodule grew within the benign nodule (more likely when the benign nodule is large). These are usually examined on ultrasound and biopsies via fine needle aspiration or core biopsy. Read more about it here: http://www. Conciergeradiologist. Com/ultrasound-guided-biopsy.

I have a complex thyroid nodule that was much smaller but has grown to 2.9 CM (it was less than a CM 7 years ago) and I can feel it, do I need surgery?
FineNeedle aspiratio: 4-7 % thyroid nodules can be cancerous. What was your TSH levels. Was a fine needle aspiration (FNA) ever performed on this nodule? If TSH IS NORMAL get FNA! If TSH lower than normal get Nuclear Thyroid Scan. If scan shows non functioning nodule...then get FNA. If FUNCTIONING NODULE check FT4 and T3 (liothyronine) levels. Good luck. ...Read more
