So went to the radiologists on weds to get thyroid ultrasound and found out that i have two cysts on my right part of my thyroid. The one was medium looking the other really small. Didn't find out exact size. I just was wondering if any of you have had any experience with this sort of thing and what the doc may suggest next??? I am kind of nervous.
I also have two cysts on my thyroid. My doctor has been watching them for month's, seeing if they are growing, or changing. So far, nothing remarkable. He has assured me that they are usually always benign and fluid filled. If they do become too large, a procedure is available to drain them. I imaging your doctor will keep an eye on them, by scheduling another ultrsound. My doctor can feel them with his hands, but I can't.
I was assured they were nothing for me to worry about, so I am following his advise and don't worry. Worrying is never helpful.
Thank you writeleft, i appreciate your reply. It's unfortunate you also have this, but it is nice to hear a personal account. I guess i am kind of a worry wart sometimes so i will try to maintain calm I'll try to let my doc do the puzzle work for me.
I had a couple years ago. I had an ultrasound and was referred to an endocrinologist who did a Fine Needle Biopsy. Basically stuck a needle in my neck and took a sample of the fluid and had it tested, cultured. Wasn't cancerous, was benign and the sample was made up of old blood cells and other fluid. Looked like coffee. Haven't had a problem since.
