    I'm playing the waiting game and wanted to see what you all thought. I'm frustrated and anxious and tired of my phone ringing. So here's what's been giong on. I was sent for an ultrasound on my neck, for swollen lymph nodes, two weeks ago. The radiologist spent 40 mins on my left side and said...

    After my primary Dr felt a slight mass I pointed out (not too big, just sort of a bit of fat to me) Friday, on my yearly checkup , she sent me directly to get an ultrasound and an appointment with an Endocrinologist today. They redid the US and results same: I go for biopsy/FNA tomorrow. Labs...

    Hello again, I finally saw the endocrinologist yesterday, 3 weeks after finding out I have a 4 cm nodule on my thyroid.

    Hello, I am a 41 year woman and went to the doctor yesterday to have my hip looked at. While the doctor was examining me she noticed that my thyroid was enlarged.

    Hi Everyone ... I just had my FNA. They took eight biopsies so hopefully I'll know something soon. I'm a tiny bit sore and have a headache but all in all okay. I'll keep you posted. Last week I posted: Hi Everyone. I'm new to the boards here. Not sure if this is where I should post or not. I...

    Hello all! I had a thyroid biopsy on Wed., for a 1.3 cm nodule that was found 2 weeks ago. My doc said he had never seen anything like it (first clue to run?) I've had biopsy's before and never experienced pain with them. This was done in his office. He did several passes, it was pretty...

    Hey guys! It's been a while since I've been on, and I've been thinking about everyone ever since. Well, my last US report back in September of last year had me getting a biopsy done at our local hospital, which IMO - was NOT fun. First off, the doctor explained that back in the 'day' he would...

    Hey guys, So my first ENT appointment is tomorrow. I'm extremely excited but yet nervous at the same time. I've been waiting about a month and a half to still get a call from my endocrinologist to set up an apt, but still; no avail! Glad I am finally able to see a new, fresh doctor who can...

    Do you have a thyroid biopsy scheduled and are worried about how it will go? There are a lot of scary stories out there about pain, bruising, swelling, etc. It's hard to find good stories so I thought I'd share my own and hopefully quell some anxiety for someone since I was a basket case. I had...

    I got the results of my fna. I am just confused what it means. All I wa told is that it's benign. Here's the report: Bland follicular cells, numerous hurthle cells, macrophages, abundant colloid. Are hurthle cells indicative of something? Any help would be appreciated.

    Happy to report that it came back benign!!! So relieved. Here's the report language. Do I have a possible future issue? The aspirated consists of follicular cells, Hurthle cells & colloid; consistent with a benign thyroid nodule. Follow up in one year. Thanks so much. God bless all of you.

    Had biopsy on right nodule yesterday. The Biopsy at Vanderbilt was painless but uncomfortable. It does look malignant with punctate microcalcifications but I still have a gimmer of hope. I have atrial flutter & episodes of tachycardia-had a heart ablation in Feb. & may have to undergo another...

    Is there anyone here who follow-ups their thyroid nodules on a multinodular goiter? I just had a chance to look at my ultrasound from November 2011 for the first time, and found it strange that there seemed to be two nodules that had gotten larger than 1 cm but were not biopsied. I called my...

    I am seeking opinions from anyone who can offer guidance. I'm a little worried about a recent FNA that I had. I have a large non-palpable solid nodule in the right lobe of my thyroid that was discovered on ultrasound and was referred to an ENT for consult. The ENT ordered an FNA biopsy. Here...

    Totally forgot about this until today. Goes to show you that my mind is mush right now... Nurse called from my drs. office on Friday.
