am so worried, can someone explain this to me pls?
My TSH and T4 is normal but T3 is .7, lower from normal value which is .8-1.90nglml.
My ENT said, the difference of .1 is nothing. But i'm having difficulty in breathing and i easily get tired. He asked me to do ultrasound. The result is:
The thyroid gland is enlarged.
There are cystic small nodules in both lobes, more on the right w/ the ff. measurements: Right lobe:
upper pole anechoic cyst: 7.3mm x 4.3mm,
interpolar anechoic cyst:4.1mm x 2.4mm
Inferior polar septated cyst with internal vascularity: 13.mm x 7.6mm
Inferior pole anechoic cyst: 3.8 x 2.8mm
The rest of the cysts are also subcentimeter in size with no internal vascularity.
The isthmus is 1.5mm thick.
The thyroid parenchyma shows normal vascularity on the Doppler interrogation.
The right thyroid lobe measures 37mm x 19.4mm x 9.4mm while the left lobe measures 37.4mm x 17.5mm x 9.4mm.
The adjacent fat are preserved.
Impression: Mild thyromegaly with cysts, one right lobe septated cyst with septal vascularity.
My ent prescibed levothyroxine 50mcg for a week, then i went back to him after. He said i should undergo needle biopsy, coz i was asking him if its cancerous. And he gave me another dosage of levo for a month with the same 50mcg.
I can't ask him coz am shy, if i take levo for a month, won't it get me hyperthy? And do i really need to undergo needle bio? am afraid, is it hurting?
What is septated cyst?
