Thyroid and CT Scan
My daughter had a blood test done and her thyroid came back abnormal.
They then did a ct scan and we were told it was normal, but did have
an enlarged lymph node.  We have an appointment with a pediatric endo
on Wednesday, but i'm wondering if that would still be necessary?  If
a ct scan comes back normal are there still other things that could be
going on?

A CT scan is not a good test for thyroid. Good tests for thyroid start with an ultrasound of thyroid and neck, others are specific uptake scans for the thyroid.
Glad you are going to a ped endo.  What did her labs come back as?

Good luck with the doctors apptmts.  I just went to the nuclear medicine dept. today for my scan and have no idea what the numbers they are talking about are!!  60% absorbed of the iodine, is that good or bad? Who knows!  But good luck to you, your daughter and your family.
