I recently had a thyroid blood test done. It was normal. If I have cancer in my body would it show up with the blood test?

I recently had a thyroid blood test done. It was normal. If I have cancer in my body would it show up with the blood test?

No: A blood test for thyroid function will not reveal cancer, not even thyroid cancer. There are virtually no reliable blood tests for cancer, exceptions being cancers of blood. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I have hypothyroidism and recently had a CRP test done the results came back within a normal range of 0.7 could this be the disorder is in euthyroid?

CRP????: Thank you for requesting me to answer your question. The CRP test is not indicative of a thyroid condition being either over or under-active. A Thyroid panel with a TSH would be more indicative of Hypo/Hyper/ or a Euthyroid condition. Hopes this helps. ...Read more

Doctor ran blood work to check for thyroid problems. The first test she ran she said was a screening test. The report calls it " i've had a high pulse and feeling really cold all the time, which is why i believe the doctor wanted to check thyroid levels.

I have a small adrenal nodule. My basic metabolic blood test was fine. Yay. Does that mean my cortisol 24hr urine collection will be to?

I have a small adrenal nodule. My basic metabolic blood test was fine. Yay. Does that mean my cortisol 24hr urine collection will be to?

Here are some...: A small adrenal nodule seemed found incidentally and usually non-functioning benign adenoma, which deserves a wait, watch, & see by repeating another imaging study - US or CT - in 6-12 months with a timely clinical follow-up afterward, as long as metabolic tests are ok and BP is easily under control with adequate general well-being. Of course, if still in doubt, ask your doctor who ordered test ...Read more

My blood level for cortisol was low 7.6 in the morning I was referred to a endocrine Doctor. I feel completely normal. Why would it be low?

My blood level for cortisol was low 7.6 in the morning I was referred to a endocrine Doctor. I feel completely normal. Why would it be low?

Borderlinee3/Why Don: The thing I always ask is why was the test done? There are a variety of reasons for a morning cortisol to be low, the most common is it being to late in the am and a simple repeat solves this. Your history also shows arthritis, if you have been on steroids for as little as a week this can decrease cortisol production in some people. Then there are rarer causes involving the adrenals or pituitary. ...Read more

Would your thyroperoxades be up on a blood test for postpardum thyroiditis or would it be somthing else like graves ? I just had a baby and it is 406!

Would your thyroperoxades be up on a blood test for postpardum thyroiditis or would it be somthing else like graves ? I just had a baby and it is 406!

Thyroiditis: Thyroid peroxidase antibodies are evidence of an autoimmune process going on in your body, because they are an antibody against your own thyroid. They can be found in people with no symptoms and can be found in several disorders. Other tests together with that one and your history and exam will help make diagnosis. http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/clinical+and+interpretive/81765. ...Read more

Is my psychiatrist in the position to demand a blood panel 9? And would the drug appear in urine test or blood test she wrote CBC deff/tsh cmp uds 9

Is my psychiatrist in the position to demand a blood panel 9? And would the drug appear in urine test or blood test she wrote CBC deff/tsh cmp uds 9

Lab work: The doctor ordered CBC with differential (which is blood cells count with count of different cell classes) TSH (which is thyroid stimulating hormone) cmp (which is comprehensive metabolic panel) uds 9 (which is urine drug screen 9-drug panel). All those are routine orders and any psychiatrist would need to know the results to properly assess a patient. There is no reason to suspect of your doctor. ...Read more
