Hard to know what this is without seeing it - would talk to your general doctor. Usually if it is getting smaller (and 0.5mm is quite small), it is not serious.
I have 2 protruding nodules that are quite visible to the eye. at bottom of neck. General practitioner examined by hand and concluded that that the right hand side lump, covers pretty much all of the thyroid gland, to the right, and the left hand side one , is smaller, but also visible to eye.
What does the size of the nodule indicate? Because of it's external protrusion, is the size of such a nodule, a cause for concern?
Is the external visibility of such a nodule, highly unsual, as my doctor seemed to imply?
Ultrasound is scheduled already. What other procedures can I expect with a nodule this size? What is the cancer rate , in relationship to the size of a nodule?
Gee, thanks. Hope to hear from you soon..................M.
P.S. I did attempt measure them.
Don't laugh now!!
I cupped them using measuring spoons: Ha!
Right hand side exactly the size of a tablespoon...left hand side, measures a bit more than a teaspoon, in my estimation uh hum...
