Brief Answer:
The result of FNA gives the diagnosis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX
I have gone through your query and understood your concern.

I saw your ultrasound and FNA results.
Thyroid ultrasound is the major diagnostic modality for evaluating thyroid nodules.
Several Ultrasound features, such as marked hypoechogenicity, irregular margin, microcalcifications are potential predictors for the presence of thyroid malignancies.

One nodule in the left thyroid lobe has some ultrasound suspicious features for malignancy and the fine needle aspiration biopsy result confirm this result.

If you want to be sure for the FNA result, you can repeat the FNA in another lab.

If the result is the same, my advice is to consult an endocrinological surgeon in your area because the recommendations in these cases are for subtotal or total thyroidectomy (according to tumor dimensions and expansion.)

So, don't worry, removing the entire thyroid will provide a good chance of cure and a low rate of clinical tumor recurrence.

Hope i have answered to your questions.
If you have other doubts, feel free and ask. I will be happy to help.
Take care.

I recently had the left portion of my thyroid removed due to an enlarged nodule. Since the surgery (7 days ago) i have been feeling very jittery. I have been unable to sleep for the past few nights. There was no evidence of hyper or hypo thyroid prior to the surgery. I am not on any thyroid medications. I take Celexa 40 mg once/day, daily vitamin and calcium supplement. Is this normal after this type of surgery?

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??
