Neoplasms (Definition)

"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more

High wbc, chronic fever(low), fatigue, adrenal innsufficiency, thyroid disease, nodules on thyroid.Had biopsy, hard to eat, swallow, breathe, 20yrs chronicwbc?

You have a lot of Sx: Have you discussed all these symptoms with your doctor and are you on treatment. Trouble swallowing after biopsy of thyroid could indicate some significant swelling or bleeding in the nodule especially if symptoms not there before. F/u with your endocrinologist. Also are you on treatment for adrenal insufficiency, if not d/w your doctor why not. ...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

Thyroidsectomy 5 days back.Case Papillary carcinoma & pitoury tumour. Pituory tumour yet to be operated. Tsh 39.9 T3 (liothyronine) 2.2 T4 1.2. is tsh level ok ?

Thyroidsectomy 5 days back.Case Papillary carcinoma & pitoury tumour.  Pituory tumour yet to be operated.  Tsh 39.9 T3 (liothyronine) 2.2 T4 1.2.  is tsh level ok ?

Thyroid & pituitary?: Are you saying you have papillary ca of thyroid, and also a pituitary tumor? What kind of pituitary tumor? Does it really need surgery? The TSH is not ok, unless it is being left high intentionally in preparation for radioactive iodine therapy. This is complex. You need to see a competent endocrinologist right away; probably to concentrate on treatment of the thyroid cancer. ...Read more

Do papillary and follicular thyroid cancers secrete thyroglobulin?

Do papillary and follicular thyroid cancers secrete thyroglobulin?

Yes: All cells of thyroid origin secrete thyroglobulin. Measuring it to follow a cancer ONLY makes since if the whole thyroid has been removed. If you have anti thyroglobulin antibodies, that makes thyroglobulin measurements unreliable. However, rising or decreasing anti thyroglobulin antibodies can be a proxy for thyroglobulin measurements. ...Read more

Thyroid swelling. Ultrasound heterogenous thyroid parynchema with hypervascularity. Blood test-normal tsh t4 t3 (liothyronine) etc but >1300 TPo antibodies?

Hard to say: Ive yet to have anyone NOT have elevated TPo but I havent sent many. The standard answer would be that it likley is GRAVES disease starting but if there arent a lot of symptoms and the labs are normal you wouldnt give treatment. Retesting if symptoms and at about every 3 months. ...Read more

131 radiation for thyroid cancer caused problems in my parotid gland. Fna reveals cyst AND tumor of partoid gland. What should I do. Remove or watch?

131 radiation for thyroid cancer caused problems in my parotid gland. Fna reveals  cyst AND tumor of partoid gland.  What should I do. Remove or watch?

Benign tumor?: Hi. I'm sorry about the parotid gland; usually the lemon drops during the therapy period prevent that. I am assuming it's not a malignant tumor, or your doc would have already told you it needs to come out (I've never seen sialadenitis from 131-I cause cancer). Confer with the ENT surgeon you're seeing about risks vs. benefits of removal. Good luck! ...Read more

Will a surgeon remove thyroid nodules 3.0cm heterogeneous solid ifwith diffussly enlarged thyroid if fna comes back ok. I have hashimoto thyroiditis?

If the FNA: Is definitively "negative" not just inconclusive, many endocrinologists would just observe and follow-up at a later date w/repeat lab, exam and ultrasound. There are other factors as well, and best discussed with your endocrinologist. ...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 gland hyper functioning nodule right lobe multi nodular goiter. What does this all mean?

Thyroid gland hyper functioning nodule right lobe multi nodular goiter. What does this all mean?

Multinodular goiter: Hi. Your hyper-functioning nodule is producing thyroid hormone without pituitary regulation. Since you have multiple nodules, chances are they're all overproducing thyroid hormone (aka "hot" nodules). Your radio-iodine scan will tell. Any "cold" nodule of certain size will need to be evaluated to make sure it's not cancer (you may not have any cold nodules). Treatment with 131-Iodine is easy. ...Read more

Should normal pancreas on CT scans, ultrasound, blood work,and tumor markers be enough to alleviate my anxiety about pancreatic cancer?

Bilateral lung nodules,Atelectasis prior papilloma thyroid CA.Pituitary Adenoma,Chiari Malformation,FMD,enlarged common bile duct no stones. Genetic?

Maybe genetic: Probably should have genetic consult. Forinstance Chiari malformation, fibromuscular dysplasia, and thyroid cancer can be associated with neurofibromatosis. Lung nodules are non specific and can be from some infections but also metastatic disease sometimes from papillary thyroid cancer. You may want to consult a geneticist physician. ...Read more
