Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

Lump in my right throat. TSH, T4 normal, UTZ results: slightly enlarged right thyroid gland with complex cystic & small nodules. Should I be worried?

Lump in my right throat. TSH, T4 normal, UTZ results: slightly enlarged right thyroid gland with complex cystic & small nodules. Should I be worried?

More No than Yes: The thyroid is a cystic gland controlled by hypothalamus (TSH) via anterior pituitary (TRF) to manufacture & secrete T3+T4. If thyroid cysts coalesce or locally enlarge, then cysts large enough to see via current US technology can be seen. This still indicates something not optimal but it is solid nodules which are far more worrisome &, though less frequent, far more likely to be thyroid cancer. ...Read more

My thyroid levels are normal but my thyroid gland fluctuates in swelling. Have a list of symptoms and cysts on my thyroid. What could be causing this?

Thyroid. 6mm nodule cyst that is HYPOECHOIC Is that cancer risk? Thyroid gland self homogeneous normal size

Likely benign: Cystic hypoechoic nodule is usually benign particularly without solid components. However some malignant tumors have cystic components. Most nodules less than 1 cm are not biopsied. Most small nodules are usually benign. Why did you get thyroid scan in the first place? Most nodules of this size are not appreciated on physical exam unless very superficial. ...Read more

A 0.3 x 0.5 x 0.3 CM hypoechoic cystic nodule with punctate internal echo is noted in the lower pole of the right lobe of the thyroid gland.?

Small nodule: Often cystic thyroid nodules can have denser regions called "punctate foci". If the nodule is not cystic those can also be microcalcifications, a finding that increases the risk of thyroid cancer. The key though is that the nodule is very small and therefore requires monitoring only, no matter what its nature may be. ...Read more

I have trouble swallowing but not all the time. Sometimes I really have a hard time swallowling and other x no problem. I had CT scan show small calcific densities in right lobe of thyroid gland. Could this be the cause even though I don't kno what the ct

Need evaluation: There are many possible causes for your current symptoms. Although the ct showed "small calcified densities in the thyroid", it still might not be the cause for your difficulty swallowing. The next step would be a thyroid u/s to see if these "densities" are in a nodule and to see how many nodules & how big they are. Get the ct result, sit down with your doc and discuss the next step of evaluation. ...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?

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
