Wife has hypothyroidism for 5 years, found a lump...need opinions
Hi everyone, first post here.
My wife has been on levothyroxin for 5 years because of her hypothyroidism.
The other day, she felt her throat and found a fairly large lump. She setup an appointment and today had an ultrasound done. The ultrasound showed it was no cystic and did have mass to it. Inside the mass appeared to be some growth of some sort.
They are going to schedule most likely Monday a biopsy to determine what those cells are.
With that said, could I get some opinions or your thoughts. From what I have gathered, it could be 1 of 2 things, and please state if there are other possibilities PLEASE!!!:
Option #1. The scariest one...cancer
Option #2. Colloid nodule
Please let me know your thoughts...my wife and I are obviously very scared at this time.
