My left thyroid lobe is slightly enlarged and I have a vascular hypoechoic nodule measuring 5x4x3mm?
Just follow it: This sounds like something you just watch and see if anything changes. Most often there maybe a new one over the year. Goiters are like that. Small nodular findings are common.

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

Sir I have an ultrasound findings saying I have A Diffuse Paranchymal Thyroid lobe disease, bilateral with subcentimeter cyst within the enlarged right?
Mild enlargement of the right thyroid lobe without discrete nodules. There is a homogeneous appearance to the echotexture of the thyroid gland.????
If I had a thyroid scan that read: left lobe of gland is mildly enlarged at 5.8cm x 1.7 x 2.2. There is a avascular 3 mm hypoechoic nodule in the lower pole of the left lobe. How would I know if it was " hot or cold"?
What you are describing are ultrasound results. A hypoechoic nodule of 3 mm of size is nearly 100% benign.
The only reason to assess if a nodule is overactive (hot) or underactive (cold) is in general hyperthyroidism. If the nodule is hot, then it can be the target of therapy. This is done through a i-131 uptake and scan. ...Read more

Thyroid cyst: It sounds like you have a simple thyroid cyst and possiblt a couple of reactive nodes that may be within normal. Why did you have an ultrasound? 4mm cysts is not palpable. I would recommend regular 6-12 month follow up. It is low risk for neoplastic pathology based on your description. ...Read more

Throid nodules. Upper right lobe hot, lower right lobe cold 3.4cm. Does that mean I have hyper and hypo thyriodism at the same time?
No, the activity: Of individual nodules on a thyroid scan may not, in and of themselves, imply hyper or hypothyroidism, which are diagnoses based on systemic symptoms and blood levels. Certainly, however, an autonomous hot nodule could result in hyperthyroidism. Cold nodules have a higher chance of malignancy (although still relatively low), and biopsy may be indicated. ...Read more

I've had my left lobe of thyroid removed d/t thyroid ca. What would the thyroglobulin teat be used to monitor?
Monitor recurrence: The thyroglobulin test is used as a tumor marker to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment for thyroid cancer and to monitor for recurrence. Not every thyroid cancer will produce thyroglobulin, but the most common types, the well-differentiated papillary and follicular thyroid cancers, frequently do, so increased levels of thyroglobulin can help guide management post treatment for thyroid cancer. ...Read more

Individualized: There are many different homeopathic remedies that could help a thyroid cyst, but only one of them is likely to help- the choice is based not just on the cyst but on everything else about you as well (homeopaths are more interested in what type of person has a disease than what disease a person has). I advise consulting a good homeopath to determine which remedy is the best fit. ...Read more
