    Do benign hurthle cells turn into maligent cells?

    I have had a total tyroidectomy. I was told my pathology report was benign! Yeah! It was also determined that I had Hurthle cells!? Is it possible for benign hurthle cells to become malignent? Are there Hurthle cells in tissues outside the thyroid gland? Since my pathology report was benign and I had my thyroid taken out, am I free to not worry?

    I hope they don't! I had the same diagnosis with my fine needle biopsy several years ago and all we did was kill my thyroid with RAI. I still have my thyroid in place. And, no follow up FNA's have been done. Hopefully that's good. It will be interesting to see what other responses you get.
