Hi. I did the opposite, as I had the Thyroid Scan first. It came back absolutely normal. Then I had the ultrasound which also revealed a multinodular goiter. I asked about the fine needle biopsy, and the endo said no. My nodules were sub-cemtimeters (under 1 cm), so I am told they are too small to biopsy. Do you know what size your nodules are? The endo says I am HYPER, yet she said I have Hashi's thyroiditis. I am only on Inderal for the mild hyper symptoms I have. I guess size is key?
No, I don't know what size the nodules are. On the ultrasound, one looked much bigger than the others, but I don't know any of the dimensions. I really wish patients were given their own copies of lab/ultrasound results to refer back to! I will have to add that to my list of questions to ask the endocrinologist. I think they can tell other details about the nodule on the ultrasound that determine likelihood of cancer, like shape, borders, and how it bounces back the sound waves. I just don't know if my nodules were "suspicious" at all.
