Possible Thyroid Cancer or Lymphoma


Last year I found out the my spleen was enlarged, but they could not find a reason. On May 23rd, while having a different sonogram, they found out that I had nodules on my thyroid. During a more detailed sonogram on my thyroid it showed that my lymph nodes were enlarged also. I have not been sick lately. All blood work come back normal except for my B12 and Vit D. I had a CT scan with contract June 14th and will have a FNA on the largest nodule on June 25th. Was also wondering why they are only doing the one asperation and not any of the others? Below is my sonogram results. Was wondering if anyone else had the same issues. When I research all three it points to thyroid cancer or lymphoma. I have had itchy skin and night sweats.

A complex mass is seen involving the superior pole of the right lobe measuring 4cm in greatest dimension. This contains areas of cystic change. Hypoechoic mass is seen involving inferior pole of the right lobe measuring 16mm. No microcalcifications are appreciated. Three nodules are seen on the left. In the midportion a 13mm solid nodule is seen. In the inferior pole a 3mm cyst is seen. Also in the inferior pole a 6mm hypoechoic solid nodule is seen. Regional cervical lymph nodes are seen bilaterally with the largest measuring 2.3cm on the right and 1.9am on the left. The right lobe of the thyroid measures 6.8x3x3.4cm and the left lobe of the thyroid measures 3.7x1.5x1.5cm.

Re: Possible Thyroid Cancer or Lymphoma

I'm so sorry you're going through this, it is very scary I know. They often biopsy the largest or dominant nodule, depends on what they see. From what I read here, even if it's cancer and in lymph nodes, it's not like other cancers, not as bad and easier to treat. Wishing you the best, and don't freak yourself out reading the worst case scenarios on the internet. Just make sure you have a good doc you trust. Hang in there, the waiting is horrible I know.

Re: Possible Thyroid Cancer or Lymphoma

Thank you for posting. My CT scan shows multiple enlarged lymph nodes so I am being referred to a hematologist.
