Doctor insights on:
Vascular Thyroid Nodule
It depends: Thyroid nodules are mostly ( 80-90%) benign . But it depends on their size and rate of change(growth in their size). A repeat Ultrasound study of your Thyroid should be done(I am sure your doctor must have advised you to do so)) in 6 to 12 months time to reassess for any growth in the nodules in your Thyroid. ...Read more
I have a cold solid vascular thyroid nodule that has doubled (now 4cm) in 6 months. Had fna, was benign so they are not worried. Should it come out?
Yes: The bigger the thyroid mass, the higher the likelihood of false negative (benign result although cancer still possibly exists) because you could possibly have a fleck of cancer within this 4 cm mass that was not sampled in the biopsy. Since you are very young (32 yo), a 4 cm mass should probably be removed. Otherwise, you should follow this closely and repeat the biopsy if more changes are seen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
1 CM hypoechoic solid and vascular thyroid nodule found and confirmed on us. Biopsy scheduled for january. How concerned should I be?
Up to you.: Sounds like it could be a cancer. But there is little benefit to worrying about things that might happen as there is also a chance that they might not happen. The biopsy will give you an answer. There is no reason to do a biopsy more quickly than what is scheduled. Until then live your life as you would normally. ...Read more

Thyroid: The, presence of calcification and your age makes it very unlikely it is cancerous ...Read more
3cm hypoechoic solid vascular thyroid nodule with a cluster of hurthle cells, fna benign, follow up ultrasound now shows microcalcifications. Cancer?
Not necessarily...: The fact that FNA was reported as benign, the nodule is unlikely to be malignant. Small droplets of benign colloid often mimic "microcalcificatins" of papillary tumor, hence caution is advised. I would suggest repeating the FNA, and consider also collecting samples for gene profiling studies, such as, those manufactured by Veracyte and Asuragen (Note:I have no financial/other interest.) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have 1cm hypoechoic, solid, vascular thyroid nodule. Am now having minor difficulty swallowing & feels like something stuck in throat. Next appt is jan 8th, should I wait till then to see dr?
8mm normal vascularity hypoechoic thyroid nodule incidentally found on ultrasound. Does this need to be biopsies? Had one before and it disappeared.
Mri & ultrasound found retrosternal, mixed density, inhomogeneous, moderately vascular complex thyroid nodule from mid to lower pole. What's it mean?
A word of caution.: Many physicians perform fine-needle aspiration biopsy; the use of ultrasound will increase the likelihood of biopsying the correct location within the thyroid. There is a significant false negative rate of biopsy even with ultrasound, and the intrepretation of the biopsy varies a great deal based on the experience of the pathologist. Do not base any medical decision solely on the biopsy results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
34 Yr old M. Dominant Homogeneous Solid thyroid nodule measuring 1.1x1.3x1.7 cm. somewhat hyper-vascular. Appt. 8 weeks away. Recommended steps? Risk?
If fast growing: or if you have symptoms, I would find another specialist to see sooner. If you call the one that is 8 weeks away several times this coming week, you will likely get in earlier due to a cancellation or just based on persistence alone. ...Read more
