Might need more. Tsh is made by your body to stimulate your thyroid to produce hormones. Tsh stimulates thyroid cancer, too, so the medicine you take is to keep your TSH level as low as possible. The fact that your TSH has risen might be a sign that you need to take a higher dose of your medication. This is something you should ask your doctor about! Read more...

Is TSH and tg level indicate to recurrence thyroid cancer or tgab level? After 6 month after tt TSH is. 04 and tg. 2 but there is tgab should worry?

You're doing. Fine. In this situation, disregard the tgab, it's only done to allow you to interpret an abnormal tg, which you don't have. Read more...
TgAb. It depends upon what the tgab level is. If the tgab levels are less than 22 iu/ml or 4 iu/ml depending upon which assay your laboratory uses, then there is no concern. If the tgab levels are elevated, the tg (thyroglobulin) test results are unreliable and your doctor may order other tests such as neck ultrasound or nuclear total body iodine scans. The TSH level is where it should be. Read more...

Is TSH and tg level indicate to recurrence thyroid cancer or tgab level? After 6 month after tt TSH is. 04 and tg. 2 but there is tgab should worry?

TgAb is of no. Importance unless total tg is very high, the important number is the tg, which is low. Unfortunately that only helps you if it was elevated prior to surgery. Keep your TSH at it's current level and follow-up with doctor exams and ultrasounds. Read more...
No Worry. The tg level follows the thyroid cancer but is unreliable if the tgab is elevated. The tgab is only relevant if it is elevated. The TSH is used to follow your thyroid hormone levels and 0.04 is an appropriate level. Read more...

Are thyroid nodules always thyroid cancer? I have a thyroid nodule and my levels of some thyroid hormone are low. My doctor wants to do more tests, but I don’t really understand what he said. Do I have cancer, or could it be something else?

Over . Over 95% of thyroid nodules are benign. Therefore the risk of cancer is low, but can be increased in younger or older people, people with a family history of thyroid cancer, or people who have been exposed to radiation (x-rays do not count). Sometimes benign thyroid nodules can secrete extra thyroid hormone, more than your body needs. If your doctor is suspicious of this, they will order a nuclear study called a thyroid uptake and scan. If a nodule is over a centimeter, that is when we usually will perform a fine needle aspiration to get a sample of cells in the nodule. If nodules are under a centimeter and there is no evidence of over activity, we can simply monitor with serial ultrasounds. Read more...
No. There are many things that can cause this most of which are benign. Bloodworm and an ultrasound and rarely a small biopsy can answer specifically what your cause is. Most are benign in nature. Read more...
