Images: "hot" or "cold" is a term related to the appearance on nuclear medicine imaging. A "hot" nodule is one that is too active, and secretes hormone, but benign. A cold nodule takes up less tracer. About 20% of these are malignant, and so they are biopsied. Cysts will also show up cold as they are fluid rather than tissue, so this study should be interpreted along side an ultrasound. ...Read more
Not usually: We do not recommend removing just the nodule. The recurrence risk is high and the secondary operation is more dangerous due to scarring. Typically we remove one half of the thyroid (lobectomy) or the whole thing (total thyroidectomy) depending on the specific pathology. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Generally not: Look for other causes. One uncommon cause is vocal cord dysfunction, which can feel just like an asthma attack, but is not relieved with inhalers. Esophageal spasm is another cause. Getting stuck on a preconceived diagnosis prevents the proper one from being made. See your doc, and describe your symptoms in detail to him, in order for the proper diagnosis to be made. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on type: If cancer, surgical removal and then treatment, possibly with radioactive iodine. If benign, but causing hyperthyroidism, then treat with radioactive iodine, antithyroid medicines, or possibly surgery. If benign and not causing symptoms, can watch closely (after benign biopsy) or use thyroid medicine to suppress growth of the nodule. If it causes symptoms (trouble swallowing), surgery. ...Read more
Variables: Radioactive Iodine treatment for hyperthyroidism tends to have a much higher success rate than medications. Depending on the dose of radioactive iodine chosen, and the disease under treatment (Grave's vs toxic goitre, vs hot nodule etc), success rate in achieving definitive resolution of the hyperthyroidism may vary from 75-100%. A major expected side effect of radioactive iodine in hypothyroidism ...Read more
Depends: Hypoechoic, hypervascular, or calcifications on ultrasound need to be addressed particularly if the nodule is > 10mm. The solid component of a complex nodule can be benign or cancer. Typically a nodule greater than 10mm should be biopsied by ultrasound or smaller if there are calcifications or prior history of radiation or family hist. There is no ultrasound pattern that is diagnostic for cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
