Exclamation Anyone had ectopic or remnant thyroid after TT?

It seems this is what I have after full surgical removal of thyroid. I am awaiting full nuclear bodyscan. Seems I may have been born this way and the ectopic thyroid may be hosting almost anywhere in my body. I am on no thyroxine meds yet still crazily hyperthyroid my original condition was benign multinodular goitre and severe thyroditis. Just wonderd if this has happened to anyone else and what was done and what was the outcome?Rozzi

Re: Anyone had ectopic or remnant thyroid after TT?

I had a strip of thyroid still in my neck after removal. They said when one is a fetus, the thyroid is actually the tongue before it becomes your thyroid, so it wasn't uncommon to find a strip of thyroid high up in my neck.

In my case this made a difference because I had thyroid cancer and I had to ablate all thyroid tissue to prevent a recurrence.

I think you can have thyroid tissue anywhere in your chest or neck, and I think it can produce hormone wherever the cells may be.
