Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament. A Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) or a biopsy of the thyroid gland or a biopsy of the node may help to make a diagnosis. A biopsy facilitates a histologic study of cells, which gives you a definite diagnosis. So once you have the diagnosis therapy can be planned appropriately.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The report shows a multinodular goitre. This means the thyroid gland has developed many lumps or nodules. This can be a Non-Toxic Multinodular Goiter or a Toxic Multinodular Goiter (when it produces excess thyroxine) or sometimes it could be due to thyroid cancer. Only further investigations like thyroid function tests and if needed a biopsy may help to diagnose the cause. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
