I am a bit nervous about my lab results from a fna done recently. I don't see my endo until 5/2 and just been stressed about the results. I have had a 7cm nodule on my left thyroid lobe since 2003 and just been monitoring it through blood work annually of thyroid levels, per my doc. Due to symptoms of hypothyroidism I went in for a recheck, long story short they did a new fna and found hurthle cells and I was told that the left nodule needs to be removed to determine cancer. I searched and found a doc at UCSF with ann apptm on the 5th.
I picked up my lab results and path slides to bring to my apptm. The results sound scarey: " overall dimensions approximately 2.1x2.5x9cm w/ large solid heterogeneous mass extending in the inferior pole of leftt thyroid lobe about 4x2.6x7.7 cm. This mass aapeared quite hypervascular on color-flow ultrasound. Clusters of Hurthle cells identified, suspicious for Hurthle cell neoplasm. Minimal colloid and red blood cells identified. Recommend excision of lesion for definitive diagnosis."
I realize that none of you may be docs but anyone familiar with theses results? I've tried to research and don't like the "hypervascular" or "colloid" . Just stressed and so long before my appointment. Any clues for what to expect???? Can't believe no fna since 2003, who knows how long the Hurthle cells have been present! Thanks for all and any words of wisdom. Debbie
