    Unhappy Thyroid looking for help for over 2 years

    I have been diagnosed with Thyroiditis, Goiter, Hashimoto's, 2 tumors on my adrenal gland.

    This is what a portion of my ultra sounds say;
    Procedure date: 12/22/2015
    Indication: Hyperthyroidism. History of Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
    Findings: Grayscale and color Doppler imaging demonstrates marked
    heterogeneity of the echo pattern of the thyroid parenchyma.
    Areas of decreased and increased signal are interspersed
    throughout and there is a suggestion of punctate calcification.
    Discrete well-defined large nodules are not demonstrated.
    Potentially the numerous hypoechoic areas could represent tiny

    The right lobe measures 5.5 x 2.4 x 3 cm and the left side 4.9 x 2.4 x 1.8 cm.

    FEB. 2016 Thyroid ultrasound.
    The right lobe measures 5.43 x 3.09 x 2.32 cm having somewhat
    irregular margins and its parenchyma is heterogeneous. It
    contains numerous small echogenic foci which either represent
    small nodules or calcifications. There are no large nodules.
    The left lobe measures 5.16 x 2.84 x 2.03 cm and its parenchyma
    is similar to that of the right lobe.

    The thyroid isthmus is thickened measuring 0.87 cm in AP

    TSH 1.53 uIU/mL (0.47-5.00)
    T3 TOTAL 111 ng/dL (76-181)
    TSH 0.47 uIU/mL (0.47-5.00)
    T4 TOTAL 5.56 ug/dL (4.5-12)
    24hr-*CREATININE mg/dL 92.9 High mg/dl (14-26)
    mg/24HR 696.8 Low mg/24h (800-2000)
    24hr-PROTEIN,URINE (mg/dL) 10.8 mg/dL

    I have had thyroid nodules for years. did anyone recommend a biopsy? If not, then I wouldn't worry about cancer anyhow. Is that what you are worried about?
