Exclamation Looking for anyone who can input on my thyroid unltrasound

Basic history: I have lupus and panic attacks, over the past 6-9 months I have been having hypogylcemia probs (my dad is the only diabetic in the family andn mom has hypothyroid probs). In October when I was home alone, I called 911 cause I knew my sigars was low (could feel the funny feelings)-- at the ER it was 22. I was admitted for 5 days, and the only thing I worried over was a 1 mm cyst on my pancreas they did as an ER cat scan....they actually did 3 psych evals saying I was taking diabtic meds to make myslef sick. After the fifth day, I checked myself out.

My GP ordered an abdominal MRI with contrast which was done 2 wks ago (I have the report but didn't seem anything unusuall). At my initial endo appt last Tuesday, she said I had enlarged thyroids and scheduled an unltrasound/sonogram for the next day. I am generally the type of person who won't worry about things ntil there's something to worry about, but I received a copy of the report today:

"The patient presents with a history of undiagnosed hypogylecemia and enlarged thyroid. The isthmus is normal in size at 2.5 mm. The right lobe masures 3.7 x 1.4 x 1.6 cm while the left lobe measures 4.1 x 2.8 x 2.7 cm.There is a large complex nodule in the left lobe which measures 2.5 x 3.2 x 2.5 cm. Impression: Dominant left sided nodule with a biposy suggested for further evaluation."

The only unusual thing the MRI found were a couple galstones in my gallbladder, but seeing a biopsy is scaring the freak out of me. ANyone with input on the procedure, what a 'normal' thyroid measures are, etc. The doc called today to bump up my appt (she doesn't know I have a copy of the report) and said we'll discuss things at the appt on 1/11, but I can't handle waiting til then.. ..thanks so much-Brandee

Re: Looking for anyone who can input on my thyroid unltrasound

The nodules may be due to hypothroidism since it runs in your family and should correct once your hormone level is restored it that is the problem by medication.
I would be very much concerned over the nodule on your pancreas as your pancreas controls you glucose levels and can lead to critically high or critically low blood sugar levels. I would go to someone who specializes in Pancreas disorders and read as much about the Pancreas as you can so you can understand the MD and ask the right questions.
