Cold nodule

Hi everyone. It's been over a year since I posted here. I have been to three endos, the third wanted to start over with a new ultrasound and scan, and a cold nodule, 2.3 cm was found, along with two other smaller nodules. These had all scanned warm previously. I have had swallowing problems for about three years, along with all the other thyroid related problems, all with only slightly suppressed levels. My problem is that I can't get an FNA until the very end of June, because my endo's boss does the fna. Do I insist on a radiologist so I can get an immediate test, how does this work? I live in a metro area with a university hospital. Thanks for your help.

Re: Cold nodule

You can also try an ENT, they get pretty good samples because they are surgeons.

But in truth, thyroid cancer is really slow growing, so there's usually no real urgency. But if you need to get it overwith, push, or try the surgeon or ENT or radiologist route.
