Nodule

Ultrasound showed a nodule on the right side just under 1 cm.

Referred to a surgeon for biopsy which will take a while because referrals never go quickly.

Thyroid numbers are okay but the TSH has increased just a touch.

Waiting......

I'm surprised because my first thyroid exam about 15 years ago showed 3 nodules, but they were small, and I was told that they had to be at least
1 cm before a biopsy could be done.

One of them eventually grew large enough to biopsy, but it was benign, as I'm told 85% of thyroid nodules are.

Once I got on thyroid Rx, the nodules stopped growing, which is what happens to benign nodules once the hormone level is adequate.

Good to know. I hope it holds true. My thyroid has reduced in size and is very close to normal so med has helped for sure.

T3 results came in and has dropped. It was 86 in July now 76. Normal range starts at 80. Hmmm.

I have about 6 nodules. They were biopsied by an endo about 10 yrs ago (that's when I first saw the word hashimotos which that endo wouldn't even try to treat). I've had ultrasounds every couple of years to ck to see they haven't changed which they really haven't.

Thanks Deb. I think that's what they'll do. I do wish my thyroid labs would stay settled.
