Re: Received my Ultrasound report!
So a nodule you used to have grew over the past couple of years? That is a red flag for removal.
Vascularity in the thyroid isn't too much to get too excited about, as the thyroid itself is a very vascular area---it's not like with other tumors that vascularity is a cue for cancer.
Nevertheless the growth/change of the nodule is a red flag. You can do repeat fna---but remember those nodules are on the larger size (over 2 cm!), and the fna only takes a sample of cells, not all of them.
You will have to consider surgery, as the only way to know if these are cancer or not, unfortunately, is surgery. Make sure the surgeon has a lot of thyroid experience---my surgery went great, and my recovery was quick---it's not a bad surgery to go thru.
