16 year old's labs show undetectable tsh

My son just had labs drawn as we were in to the Dr to see if he had ADD. The Dr called me at home at 8 pm at night and said his labs came back Undetectable and he wants him in his office right away Monday morning to get a scan and maybe more labs. He did mention cancer. What exactallly does it mean to have Undetecable TSH levels??

Don't know what kind of doctor that is---tsh has nothing to do with thyroid cancer. Likely he is hyperthyroid---perhaps graves disease, you should see a pediatric endocrinologist, and say you want to try meds to handle it, not radioiodine therapy.
