    Thyroid ultrasound and RAIU results

    I would like the input of some experienced people here please. I (37 M) had subacute thyroiditis (probably due to an one knows) a year back. Because of that I had fluctuating thyroid related blood work (hyper to hypo to normal).

    Last May I had a RAIU scan. Results are below -

    "Scan demonstrates homogeneous uptake throughout the thyroid. Inferior to the lower pole of the right thyroid lobe there is increased focal uptake possibly related to exophytic thyroid nodule. There are no additional focal areas of increased or decreased uptake to suggest hot or cold nodules. Correlate with ultrasound if any clinical concerns exist.

    Four hour thyroid uptake is low normal measuring 7.8%. Given low TSH, absence of focal hot nodule and mildly elevated T4, these findings may be related to resolving subacute thyroiditis."

    In November my TSH was slightly elevated. SO my GP ordered a thyroid ultrasound. So in March I did a blood test and a thyroid ultrasound. Bloodwork was completely normal. The results of the thyroid ultrasound are below -

    "The right thyroid lobe measures 4.7 x 1.6 x 1.6 cm. The left thyroid lobe measures 3.9 x 1.1 x 1.4 cm. The thyroid isthmus measures 0.3 cm in anteroposterior dimension.

    Evaluation of the thyroid gland demonstrates a well-circumscribed complex partially echogenic nodule within the upper pole on the left measuring 5 x 4 x 4 mm. Internal vascularity within this nodule is identified upon Doppler interrogation.

    Solitary 5 mm nodule within the upper pole left thyroid lobe. Tissue sampling would be required to exclude the possibility of a thyroid neoplasm."

    How does it all sound? I am otherwise healthy and have no symptoms.
