merrillin HB User for you.....

I wanted to let you know after our posts to each other I did ALOT of research, in fact, half the night!

What I can gather is adenoma is almost always used in a benign situation. Also. that it is highly unlikely that it will "turn" cancerous and in fact can reslove themselves. Now I read these from University hospitals and as you know I cannot post the sites.

Also it said that an andenoma grows out of the follicular level of the thyroid and will contain colloid layers. It sounds to me that an adenoma is a seperate entity and grows inside the thyroid wall, i.e. the follicular layer as where a nodule will just grown "ON" the thryoid. Has that made any sense?

I don't know that it cleared up everything for me but it explained a whole lot where the term follicular lesion comes in. Anything effecting the layer of follicular cells is called a follicular lesion.

Whew, it was a mindful, but I still would like to just get it out for peace of mind. I also read though where sometimes even if a cancerous nodule is suspected they will do a retest, that confused me a bit.
