Is it possible to have enlarged lymph nodes with hoshimotos hyper thyroidism? And why they need a biopsy?
Common. Seeing mildly enlarged lymph nodes in the neck is very common with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. We usually do not biopsy these lymph nodes unless there is something suspicious about them (large size, abnormal blood flow within the lymph node). Are they looking to biopsy a lymph node or a thyroid nodule?
They want to make . Sure you don't have a malignancy- cancer whether related to hashimoto's disease or not.
I have 6 enlarged lymph nodes on the left side of my neck. Just had one removed for biopsy yesterday. What could this be caused by?
Enlarged lymph nodes 4 years. Left check neck and arm. Dr's say 8mm and won't so a biopsy. What should I do? Could it be? Seen GP, ENT, AND CANCER DR.
Likely benign. Given that the lymph node is less than 1 cm in size and has been stable for many years it is very likely benign. It does not meet the criteria for biopsy. At this point, the risks of the biopsy are felt to be greater than the possible benefit of the biopsy. If the lymph node gets larger, then it may be appropriate to perform a biopsy. Read more...
