Enlarged thyroid with lesion

Common Questions and Answers about Enlarged thyroid with lesion

The scan showed that my thyroid was a large, asymetric thyroid, predominantly involving the left lobe with a low density lesion at the inferior pole of the left lobe of the thyroid. It is a lower density lesion measuring 1.6 x 1.3 x 1.3 cm containing a punctate calcification at the lower pole of the left thyroid lobe. Is this cancer or a goiter. Should I see a surgeon first or an endocrinologist?
I have a couple of questions: I have an "unidentified lesion" on my thyroid. I have had an ultrasound FNA but they were unable to get any cells even after 7 attempts. The shape of the mass is long and skinny - maybe about 1.5 cm long and thin. I also have a lump on the side of my neck which my ENT says is an enlarged lymph node. So I recognize that this has some possible characteristics of a malignant mass.
The right lobe of the thyroid measures 5.0 x 2.0 cm. There is a 1.3 cm mixed echogenicity lesion. The left lobe of the thyroid measures 3.0 x 1.9 cm. There is a 1.3 hyperechoic lesion. Impression: Bilateral 1.3 cm nodules as above. Consider biopsy. My problem is that I am older and went back to college. I am almost finished (last semester) but, of course, I do not have insurance. I want to be very careful with the decisions I make at this point . . .
They did a biopsy on the left thyroid adenoma that they found and it has came back as an aypia of undetermined signfiance - rare group of follicular cells with enlarged nucei, some with muclear grooves, present in a background of abundant volloid; favor reactive changes.... any thoughts or ideas on what this might be? it is common to find both? I have history of an acoustic nueroma on the right side. 4.4 cm - surgery in Dec 05. Any suggest treatment plans? monitor it? Thyroidectomy?
I have a large cyst on my right thyroid that the doctor has aspirated fullt and has tested ok, I have had an ultrasound which identified large cyst with septations, the radiographer advised that I would be back for a biopsy under ultrasound. I have since went back to see the endo with an enlarged thyroid, it grew back immediately after being drained and the endo advise to aspirate and re test , he completely drained off and has now referring me for a biopsy under scan.
Sounds like a benign multinodular goiter with an element of autoimmue thyroid disease (like hashimotos thyroiditis). In general, I recommend surgery for suspicious biopsy results (which you do not appear to have, but if desired the slides could be sent for expert second opinion to a university). The other time surgery is recommended is when the thyroid is enlarged to the point of compressive symptoms of trouble swallowing, consistent hoarseness, and choking sensation (esp when lying down).
The radiology report showed that the lymph nodes were enlarged but not concerning. That's when they found a 1 cm lesion in my Thyroid. I have constant itching, weightloss, night sweats, and constant chest pain. Sometimes my heart feels like it is flip flopping and sometimes I get very dizzy. These symptoms are making much more sense to me now but I don't know how concerned I am supposed to be.
So my scan came back with my thyroid being on the borderline or being enlarged. All the nodules are functioning or hyper, especially the right lobe as well as being described as patchy. I assume this is what is called toxic multinodular goiter but that's a self diagnosis. Still waiting on the Dr. appt and hoping surgery or RAI is not needed.
i saw endocrinologist yesterday for results and learnt that my liver is enlarged with discreet lesion, my kidneys are slightly enlarged too. more bloods taken this a.m. and doc says he will change and add meds for diabetes blood pressure and thyroid when in receipt of bloods results and is referring me to gastroenterologist and liver specialist for further investigations. he tells me that they may want to do mri or ct scan, possibly an endoscopy and probably a biopsy.

fast forward had another ultrasound nov 2013 which revealed no nodules no cysts or growths but enlarged left and right thyroid lobes.. This year I have gained and lost the same twenty pounds due to a gastric condition but other than that it has always been impossible for me to loose weight. THYORID ULTRASOUND NOV, 2011 RIGHT LOBE: 5.5 X 1.4 X 1.7 CM. LEFT LOBE: 4.6 X 1.4 X 1.9 CM. THYROID ISTHMUS: 2mm FINDINGS: There are multiple subcentimeter nodules upto 5mm in size, right more than left.
Now the results came back with that nodule bigger at 8X5X5 MM and also a very questionable indistinct hypo/isoechoic lesion measuring 5mm in the right lobe. The thyroid is enlarged and inhomogeneous echotexture. Since my first test I was put on synthroid 25. Any thoughts on thoughts on this new lesion and why the first nodule grew? My labs tests have been perfect throughout this except my SED rate (which ranges from 40-60). They have tested me for all of the common thyroid problems.
Hi guys, I am new to this forum and have been seeing a urologist for other issues, in the course of testing I had a Trans vaginal ultra sound done that revealed that I have an enlarged uterus and a "lesion on my right ovary", now the report calls it a lesion but my urologist called it a cyst and told me that I need to have it monitored although he thought it was prob nothing to worry about I should have my Transvaginal ultrasound repeated. I am peri menopausal and I am 44.

I am 26 yrs old with no family history of any thyroid disorder. I felt of a neck swellness( just a little) and so went to the Dr for a check up of which he directed me to go for an ulrasoung(US of the thyroid gland). The Ultrasound report results is the following: thyroid gland is mildly enlarged. the right love measures5 cm longitudinaly and 2.1 cm in the AP direction. The isthmus is 3 mm in the AP direction. eft Loe is 4.2 cm longitudinally and 1.8cm n the AP direction.
- you have the option to actually discover the type of lesion, which you should, and to get the lesion treated properly. Did you get a dynamic pituitary MRI? Prolactin only? That covers ONE type of pituitary tumor... and there are many others so that one test is not enough. Find a pituitary center at a university center or larger hospital. Get a competent doctor. Someone who know. Get copies - even some neuro-endos are duds.
i have been sick for almost a year and a bit, huge weight loss approx 100lbs in less thanl 3 months appetite loss, nausea, Went for an ultrasound of my thyroid and discovered an enlarged thyroid and 2 nodules one which is a well defined hyperechoic in nature appears to be a small adenoma 6mm in the left pole, the second being heterogenous in nature in the right pole measuring 1 cm my tsh is normal, my free t3 and t4 are normal anti microsomal antibodies are normal, and antithyroid antibodies we
hi dr, i discovered my thyroid nodules in october 07 and it has grown about 2cm since then, scan showed i had a multinodular thyroid with a dominant nodule which was aspirated and found to be follicular cells so having the whole thing removed (report said very little thyroid tissue and no convincingly benign features) i also have enlarged lymph glands, grew quite rapidly, constant feeling of a lump in the throat. all blood tests nornmal except possitive for TPO antibodies.
I have struggled with my Thyroide for the last six years, I have now been diagnosed with Thyroid Antibodies and to be honest do not really know what all this is about. I have had my thyroxine upped from 225 to 250 due to my TSH level shooting up to 18. I have also been told that I have very little hope of getting pregnant, I have been trying for over two years now.
1 cm right sided lesion is most consistent with a simple cyst, typically we do not biopsy these. The other is 0.9 cm and most cases we watch these, this sounds like a nodule potentially but also may be a cyst. The TSH is in the low normal range, the chance of Hashimoto's (usually hypothyroidism/high TSH) is low in this setting. Most likely the recommendation will be followup ultrasound in 6-12 months.

Thyroid gland, fna, cytology, follicular lesion with evidence of recent hemorrhage. so my question is it cancer or just a tumor, and do i need an operation or i can have medications to treat it, and is it a dangerous case or not, and if i won't have an operation could it be cancer after a while?
Just had my thyroid removed and was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer. I am currently waiting for a RAI scan. Any advice.
My Ob-gyn found my thyroid to be enlarged; My PCP confirmed, did a blood test (came back normal); an ultrasound (found a 2-cm "undefined lesion" on lower left lobe of thyroid). Now wants to do a nuclear thyroid scan. When I asked why the nuclear scan and what might be going on, I was told if I had questions to seek a 2nd opinion. I don't have health insurance. If the blood test shows the thyroid is producing okay, should I be concerned about the "undefined lesion"?
prominent vascularity is noted. normal left thyroid and isthmus as regarding size and parenchymal echopattern with no nodules seen. no retrosternal extension normal neck vasculature no enlarged cervical lymph nodes and the pathology result is:- clinical diagnosis :- right thyroid glandular lobe nodule nature of the specimen : ct guided biopsy gross:- three grayish white fragmented tissue cores measured 0.6 cm long each, totally submitted.
I had aches and pains radiating from my neck to my shoulder and down my arm. I had a MRI done and on that was noted that I had a lesion/cyst on my thyroid. I had sent a copy of my MRI to my Medical Doctor and he referred me to go see a Thyroid specialist. I made an appointment with him (Dr. Willis) and at first he had said beings my blood work came out good he wasn’t to worried. He even said we might be able to wait 3 months and see if it enlarged.
moderately enlarged right and left lobe of the thyroid with multiple nodules in the left lobe as well as towards the pyramidal lobe...
Heterogeneous echotexture mass in the mid to inferior pole of the right lobe of thyroid measuring 1.2 x 0.8 x cm with a heterogeneous echotexture lymp in the submandibular region. Considering the solid lesion - metastatic lymphadenopathy should be considered. My appointment is next Friday with the ENT. Does anyone have any suggestions or thoughts or questions I should ask. Any thoughts would be so appreicated! Thank yoU!
No abnormalities were detected elsewhere in the thyroid. The left lobe is not enlarged and the thyroid isthmus is of normal thickness. This is a solitary solid nodule in the right lobe of the thyroid. This could well be benign but its size and solid nature makes it imperative for this to be evaluated further with FNA biopsies. Surgical referral is recommended. My blood tests are normal according to my doctors and I have done a FNA biopsy and it came back inconclusive.
