Brief Answer:
Your doctor is right in telling that fluid from ruptured cyst is absorbed

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
Please find my observations below.

1. A thyroid colloid cyst usually does not rupture. However if it does, then the fluid is absorbed by the body. Many doctors might remove a large thyroid cyst surgically if required.

2. There is no serious concern from a ruptured thyroid colloid cyst. Your doctor is right and nothing requires to be done.

3. It will help to know your condition more accurately if you might upload copy of the report with your query.

Please feel free to correct any oversight in my interpretation of your problems and discuss them in detail as per your requirements.

Hope your query is answered.
Do write back if you have any doubts.

Brief Answer:
Alcohol injection in to the thyroid cyst might help

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for writing back with an update.

1. The cyst if ruptured, the fluid from it gets absorbed in a few days.

2. Regarding the aspiration of thyroid cysts, there is research which shows that "Percutaneous ethanol injection without aspiration of ethanol-mixed fluid seems to be the preferable method of treatment of benign cystic thyroid nodules from the perspective of both the physician and the patient."

The above means to say that injecting alcohol in the cyst is a good way to reduce and treat benign cysts of thyroid.

3. You might like to discuss the above treatment with your doctor please.

Hope your query is answered.
Please do write back if you have any doubts.

I am a 58 year old female. My blood pressure is usually 120/80. I went for an appointment for a thyroid biopsy and it shot up to 200/100. When the doctor determined by the ultrasound I didn't need the biopsy, it began to lower--around 143/90 when i left? Should I be concerned?

Hi. i am 33 year old female, had my last baby about a yr. ago. Have had some issues since shortly after. 1st i was having dizziness. had a thyroid test and was normal with tsh being 1.3. Over the last 6 months have developed increased anxiety that seems cyclical in nature. I began seeing a new dr. and she retested my thyroid. tsh was 5.3 and free t4 was wnl. I have tried some ssri's without total relief and am thinking now this has to due with my thyroid, although i really thought i had symptoms of overactive thyroid such as anxiety, breathlessness, rapid hr, things like that. can i have these symptoms with hypothyroid. also my dr. started me on the bcp to ?? regulate hormones. Any advice or thoughts??
