Re: Nodule Found In My Daughter's Thyroid Gland

Hi ~ nodules are very common with hypothyroidism. My mother was diagnosed with one when she was in her late 40's - she is 83 now and they've just kept her on thyroid hormone all these years and do an ultra sound every few years to check the size of it. They are rarely cancerous or anything to worry about. Hypothyroidism runs in our family all the women have it including me. I'm going for my first ultra sound next week. I would not worry about this, it sounds like your doctor is treating it in a very normal and safe fashion.
