Treatment Of Hurthle Cell Metaplasia Thyroid
Left thyroid papillary carcinoma. Some follicular cells show hurthle cell/oncocytic changes. Is the treatment generally thyroidectomy & rad. Iodine?
"metaplasia" refers to one tissue type undergoing a change to another, such as bronchial lining (which is usually a single layer of cells, "respiratory epithelium" becoming multi-layered and heavily keratinized, so-called squamous metaplasia. This is common in smokers. Other such changes can produce tissue such as ...Read more

Thyroid fnac report-atypia of undetermined significance or follicular neoplasm. What it means? Treatment?
Thyroid FNA: Hi. A follicular neoplasm of undetermined significance means the cytology doesn't meet criteria for cancer or benign, thus the "undetermined significance". Historically, most of these turn out to be benign, but a significant subset are cancer. It appears they did not do gene testing. Next step would usually be surgical excision of the nodule, frozen section analysis, then total thyroidectomy if CA ...Read more
Pathologic diagnosis....Resected thymus shows reactive b cell hyperplasia vs low grade b cell lympho proliferative disorder. Is this lymphoma?
Could be...: Certain lymphomas grow so slow that sometimes it is difficult for the pathologist to make the call between malignant or not. I suspect they may do additional work on the specimen and that your doctor will evaluate you further with labs, additional scans or another biopsy. If you have not seen a hematologist, maybe this is the time. Don't panic, just follow up his/her lead. Best to you. ...Read more
Review with your MD: Usually, when one aspirates a thyroid cyst one may see "rare epithelioid giant cells". Most simple cysts of the thyroid are benign. However, fine needle aspirate of cystic papillary thyroid carcinoma may also show this feature and may lack diagnostic cells. So, additional information is needed to interpret the cytology report. ...Read more
More aggressive: This is a form of thyroid cancer that has a worse prognosis than the typical papillary cancer. It is not the worst form of thyroid cancer. This is also associated with a mutation in the cancer cells call b-raf. There are some new drugs that attack this kind of tumor in later stage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Biospy of thyroid report "Macrofollicular thyroid parenchyma, suggestive of nodular hyperplasia" What does this means?
Yes: It may be curable but you will need and extensive work up and close follow up with your otolaryngology surgeon (ent). Depending on the extent of cancer treatment may consist of any combination of surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Maintaining your nutrition and mental health during this time would be very important as well. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Hi Doctor, what it means small fragment of squamous cells with dysplasia, benign endocervical cells present. Thanks?
Incomplete informat: The presence of histiocytes (a type of inflammatory cell) & expected follicular cells in thyroid is not necessarily worrisome. But it depends on your symptoms, & what prompted the biopsy / FNA to begin with. Also, did you have a radioactive iodine exam? (Called "thyroid uptake & scan")? That tells you if the follicle is "functional" or not (making hormone). A hyperfunctional nodule is more worriso ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does benign follicular cells in mixed micro macrofollicular pattern, focal hurthle cell changes histiocytes mean? 3cm nodule on thyroid fast grow
Discuss: For a 3 CM fast growing thyroid mass, there is a higher chance of false negative with the biopsy. Not all the mass could be cancerous and the cancer spot could have been missed during fna because the mass is big at 3 cm. Most prudent step now is to follow for size changes and rebiopsy if it changes in 1 year. Depending on your age and current compressive symptoms, surgery is an option. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What do these biopsy results of thyroid nodule mean ATYPIA OF UNDETERMINED SIGNIFICANCE OR FOLLICULAR LESION OF UNDETERMINED SIGNIFICANCE?
Re-FNA in 3-6 Months: Hi Jami, AUS/FLUS is a term that cytopathologists use for thyroid nodules that they basically are "unsure" about. Classic management for this diagnosis is to have a second repeat FNA in 3-6months. Nowadays though high tech molecular pathology tests can sometimes divide AUS/FLUS definitively into benign and malignant categories. Please setup a virtual consult with me for more information. ...Read more

Esophageal biopsy:fragments of hyperplastic squamous epithelium with basal zone hyperplasia. What is this? Bad?
Often unexplained: Most young adults have at least one palpable lymph node in the neck, and if it's sampled, it usually shows follicular hyperplasia. We usually don't find the cause and assume it was just a though node fighting germs. If a cause is found, it's often hiv, rheumatoid arthritis, syphilis, toxoplasmosis, or common variable immunodeficiency. ...Read more
