Re: Please Help ..... I am so scared
I think all nodules are pretty solid. A lot of people have thyroid nodules (I had two!) I did not have to get mine removed, but a lot of people do. My grandmother was in a similar situation as you. She was talking to a friend and threw her head back to laugh and her friend was like "what's that on your neck". She had NO IDEA. It was a cancerous nodule, but they were able to remove it and she was fine. No problems whatsoever. Chances are, yours is NOT cancerous, so please don't worry too much (I know that is much easier said than done).
I also agree with Midwest that your depression problems stem from a thyroid imbalance. It will be important to get your thyroid hormones checked (Free T3 & Free T4). I am sure the doctor will also order a TSH test. You need to be sure and ask to be tested for antibodies (antibodies are what cause Graves disease/hyperthyroidism and Hashimotos/hypothyroidism). I had Graves with nodules, but my grandmother just had a lump -- no antibodies. It will give you a clearer definition of what is going on in your body to have them tested though. You will be fine. Just keep coming here and soaking up all the knowledge you can. In the meantime I suggest you check out the book "The Thyroid Solution". It is a great read and really can give you a lot of information!
