Can;t believe I found this board- great- 5 years ago a physician I only saw once said I had
a thyroid nodule so my familydoctor ordered an ultrasound of the thyroid which revealed several
small (less than 5mm. benign appearing cysts. My doctor didn't feel there was anything wrong and when
he palpates my thyroid during my physical every year he feels it is normal size. My TSH is normal. I did
have radiation therapy for acne when I was young so I suppose there was some concern. I guess my
question is if the cysts are benign, what, if anything does that mean except thank goodness a
person doesn't have cancer. But, do cysts mean anything else?
