Help With Pathology Report

What wording in my report makes my nodules suspicious?
"Scant fragments of follicular thyroid parenchyma with mild hyperplastic features and focal hurthle cell (oncocytic) change."
"Groups of follicular cells and many hemosiderin-laden macrophages,consistent with nodular goiter."
"follicular lesion- this may represent a nodular goiter, however, a follicular neoplasm cannot be completely excluded."
"Groups of follicular cells, many with microfollicle formation Atypia and colloid."

Re: Help With Pathology Report

All of it.

Was there a particular word or phrase you were concerned with?

Re: Help With Pathology Report

yes like you said all of it, I don't understand any of it and when I google some of the phrases I read that maybe they didn't get enough tissue or it can all be benign. There's just nothing specific and I hate to have my thyroid taken out because they didn't get enough for a through biopsy.

Re: Help With Pathology Report

Lantana... did you talk to your doctor about this?
If so what did he/she say?

From what you wrote, it sounds like they got plenty of tissue... enuf to come to four conclusions about the state of your thyroid.

What you do about it is up to you and your doctor.
You can either watch it, or go in and remove the portion of your thyroid that contains the nodule, to examine the surrounding tissue and nodule capsule for malignancy.

If your doctor told you that he/she wants to remove your thyroid, my advice is to go to another doctor for a second opinion.
