Dominant, mildly heterogeneous nodule
I had a Uptake scan which showed a "cold" nodule. Then, I had an ultrasound. I have a biopsy scheduled. My ultrasound report said the following:

"Findings: There is a cold nodule in the lower pole of the right lobe on the nuclear medicine scan. This corresponds to a dominant, mildly heterogeneous nodule. This measures 2.9 x 1.6 x 1.8 cm. There is a small cyst and smaller nodule within the right lobe. The smaller nodule measures 12x8x9 mm. There is a 5x6 mm solid nodule withine the left lobe. Overall the right lobe measures 5.1 x 1.8 x 2 cm and the left lobe 5.0 x 1.1 x 1.8 cm.
Impression: Dominant, solid nodule within the lower pole of the right lobe of the thyroid glad. This was a cold nodule on recent thyroid scanning. Further evaluation is suggested with percutaneous biopsy of this nodule, if this has not been performed previously"

OK.... Is that a large nodule?? That sounds big to me. What do you think is going on?? I am so scared that it's cancer. I just had a baby boy 8 months ago.... I can't be sick! I'm just wondering if anyone else has anything similar to this going on. Thanks for any input.

I just read your post.  I, too, am having a biopsy on a large cold thyroid nodule.  I'm so freaked out b/c I have small children, also.  What happened to you?  I hope everything worked out.

2.5 cm equals 1 inch.  so, 2.9 cm equals about 1 1/4 inches.  My nodules are also cold.  My largest is 2.6 cm.  I'm assuming I will need a biopsy, but haven't seen the endo yet.  Keep us posted.
