Talking Thyroid issues

Hi, I have had thyroid issues since 1996.

Over the years thyroid was slightly large,
Ultrasound on 4/19/2009
Right lobe 4.2 +1.9+1.6 cm
Left lobe 4.2 + 1.8+ 1.3 cm
Isthmus 4mm in thickness
Multiple nodules seen in right lobe all appear solid hypoechoic 7mm,5mm,4mm and 2mm in upper pole.
Had a 1.1 cm prominent solid hypoechoic in left lobe

Had a tumor on my thymus gland that was the size of a grapefruit and it was not cancerouse. Have cyst in breast and in ovaries.

Insurance change
Ultrasound and blood work on 1/04/2013
Tsh1.70
Free T4 1.2
T3 112
Ultrasound
Right lobe 5.3 + 2.0+ 1.5 cm
Left lobe 5.0 + 1.9+ 1.3 cm
Still have multiple nodules in right lobe but one is solid complex predominately cystic measuring 0.8+0.9+0.5 cm.
left lobe clear

I have another ultrasound next week do to primary request.
Would like to know what some people think
I did show signs several years ago for hyper and now have been showing signs of hypo symptoms.

Re: Thyroid issues

Based on what I've read, I think your nodules are of no real concern. They are smaller than 10mm.

Stuff like: 'solid complex predominately cystic measuring 0.8+0.9+0.5 cm' usually means that a nodule has out grown it's blood supply and is in the process of being absorbed.

You didn't post lab ranges. So can't comment.

You could have antibody tests. done. But a warning, they aren't necessarily definitive. A lot of people with autoimmune disease have negative antibody tests, and a fair number 10% of normal people have elevated antibodies.

Also should do a standard blood workup. Mineral and vitamin deficiencies can cause very similar symptoms to hypothyroidism, as well as other hormonal deficiencies.

Re: Thyroid issues

Those are fairly median values I think.

As I mentioned a lot of other things have similar symptoms.
