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
What are the chances of a hypoechoic, solid, internally vascular thyroid nodule with calcification, of being cancerous? Biopsy is scheduled next week
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
With regards to cancer, peripheral vascularity versus intranodular vascularity in complex thyroid nodule. Explain difference.
It is tough to fully understand your question.
Do you have a thyroid nodule? Do you have thyroid cancer?
Peripheral vascularity versus intranodular vascularity in complex thyroid nodule - is that something your doctor (s) have told you or is this some research you are exploring?
Please keep in touch with me if you don't mind. ...Read more
Are heterogeneous complex thyroid nodules degenerating adenomas and have to be removed if peripherally vascular?
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
Hyperplastic nodule: This sounds like a hyper plastic nodule. These are usually benign. In the absence of prior studies, this usually is followed up to show it's stable nature. If it changes or grows it would need a biopsy. Nonetheless would suggest an in depth discussion with your doctor ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Presence of hypoechoic area in hyperechoic thyroid nodule. What it indicates? Nodule has increased vascularity
Uncertain: There are various characteristics of thyroid nodules on ultrasound, including hyperechoic, hypoechoic, isoechoic, cystic, complex, vascular, calcified, microcalcifications. Unfortunately, none of them can tell you for sure whether the nodule is benign or malignant. In your age group, we would be recommending biopsy of the nodule if it is 1 cm in size or larger. ...Read more
What may be a possible cause of increased peripheral vascularity around a 1cm slightly hypoechoic thyroid nodule?
Thyroid nodule 33.7x24x24 isoechoic and well defined, solid with significant nodule vascularity. Affirma test says benign. Should I remove to be sure?
I have a thyroid nodule. A scan revealed that it is solid with irregular borders, and I have increased vascularity, what does this mean?
Male with dominate homogenous solid thyroid nodule measuring 1.1x1:3x1.7. US says somewhat hyper-vascular. Are the cancer risk high? Need a FNB?
Could be cancer: Hi. A nodule with those characteristics could be a cancer, although the odds are in your favor that it's not based on years of data on thyroid nodules. You need an FNA, and I recommend doing it with gene testing (such as the Afirma thyroid FNA system; your endocrinologist will be aware of this, and probably uses it). The gene testing reduces surgery for non-diagnostic cytology. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
