I've got a nodule in my right thyroid lobe, tsh 0,25 T4 23, lot's of ear pain, no leucocytosis, next monday FNA (again, first fna was inconclusive). My doc was thinking of Thyreoditis, Toxic adenoma, a benign nodule or maybe cancer. Personally i don't think its a toxic adenoma.
What do you think?
If the TSH is stable and low -- ie not fluctuating like one would see in thyroiditis, then a I-123 scan (usually preferred over Tc99 scans) would be the next step before FNA to determine if the 3.3cm nodule is a "hot" nodule - in which case FNA is usually not indicated. Even cystic nodules can be cancer...or hot...or benign/non-functioning.
Did you look at the photo I took off the tc99 scan? I'am very curious to know what you think about it. In may I had a miscarrige (11wks), end of july I felt the lump in my neck. Can thyroiditis occure after miscarrige and if so can the nodule be a sign of it and will it disappear spontaneously after the thyroid is cured?
I really want to get rid of it, (troubling swallowing, ear pain) is surgery an option?
