Thyroid nodule with complex echo texture, prominent vascular flow. Anything to worry?

I have a left thyroid nodule with complex echotexture and prominent vascular flow. It measures 1.0 x 1.5 x 1.8cm. My labs are all within normal range. The soonest they can get me in for biopsy is 3 weeks. How soon should I get the nodule biopsy done? Is that soon enough? Should l be concerned about the ultrasound findings?

Hi,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,
You have a Thyroid nodule and your thyroid functions are normal, further treatment depends on the result of biopsy as benign(Non cancerous) and Cancerous nodule have different treatment and surgical options.

Apart from T3,T4 and TSH,Thyroid scan to see hot spot, FNAC(Fine needle aspiration cytology) can be useful.

Treatment option include if benign watchful waiting,Surgery to remove nodule and biopsy.

Treatment with radioactive Iodine are various option.

Please get Biopsy and consult Endocrinologist and a Surgeon for management.
Hope this helps you.

Take care.
Good Luck.
