Hypervascular nodules??

Saw the Dr. today. US showed 3 hypervascular nodules that are not "cold". They are small in size. Dr. has referred me to endo. She is not sure about the safety of getting a FNA with hypervascular nodules (bleeding concerns).

Having a barium swallow and CT of neck and chest tomorrow. Dr. ordered a bunch more thyroid blood tests, even though the TSH cascade and RAIU tests came back in the normal range.

Anybody know what hypervascular nodules that aren't "cold" might signify? And if it's unsafe to have these types of nodules biopsied?

Thanks.

Re: Hypervascular nodules??

Maryland,
Well, I have a hypervascular nodule, quite large, and had it biopsied. They did an ultrasound guided FNA on that nodule with no problems.

If you have to have one rest assured that it was of no concern to the pathologist who did mine.

How large was the nodule and where was it located?

Best wishes,
Karen

Re: Do hypervascular nodules mean Graves??

Karen,

I have 3 small hypervascular nodules. The Dr. did not give me the size, only said they are very small.
