I have multiple nodules on thyroid,I am wondering do I need a biopsy
Hi I have been having overall bone pain and always tired and abnormal bloodwork..Rheumatologist says bloodwork points to malignancy..Doctor said during a recent cat scan of lungs they noticed my thyroid is enlarged..They sent me for an ultrasound of thyroid and here are the findings,I am worried because i think they should biopsy them.
results:The thyroid is normal size. The right lobe measures 4.6x1.8x1.7 cm.The left lobe measures 4.9 x 1.6 x1.6 cm
There are multiple nodules within the thyroid.On the right there are colloid cysts measuring 5mm,9mm,9mm and 10mm. Ovoid,well defined hypoechic nodules measure 9mm,11mm. A solid and cystic nodule measures 12mm. A mixed echogenicity nodule measures 8mm. Within the left lobe ,there are colloid cysts measuring 9mm,5,, and 6mm. A mixed echogenicity nodule measures 8mm. A hyoechoic nodule measures 7mm.
There is a small colloid cyct within the isthmus measuring 3 mm
Impression;There are multiple,bilateral,interminate thyroid nodules withou suspicious features.Consider periodic physical exam or ultrasound to demonstrate long term stability...Bilateral colloidcysts. those are the exact words in report and noone has done any bloodwork to see how my thyroid is functioning...So teh question is do I push for more tests or sit back and wait until they decide to check it again...They did order a bone scan for all the bone pain ,but dont have results yet..
