Waiting on thyroid biopsy results - very scared

I am a 46 year old female. I had a biopsy this week on my thyroid. A nodule was discovered by accident on an MRI. An ultrasound revealed 4 nodules on my right thyroid. 3 are small, 1 is 2.13 cm, some hypoechoic features, some solid, and some microcalcifications. I'm scared to death because I've read that microcalcifications make it more likely to be cancer. I have no symptoms, can't feel the nodule, my thyroid hormone levels are normal, and no antibodies for hashimotos. I had my iodine levels tested and they are low, although not extreme.

I'm panicking really badly and I have to wait several more days for my results. Any reassurance would be appreciated.

Please no responses if yours was cancer. I need to feel some hope. I'm suffering from severe anxiety over this.

I too am awaiting biopsy results. I had mine performed yesterday and I have swollen lymph nodes so I am very nervous. I hope you received good results!

Re: Waiting on thyroid biopsy results - very scared

Dear ones,

Most thyroid cancers are very easily diagnosed and removal of the cancer is the cure. Usually the worst that occurs is that you need thyroid hormone replacement, which is available and do-able

NO WORRIES.

There are loads of great info out there, so NO worries, OK??
