recently I noticed a small lump on the right side of my neck. in a scan, a solitary nodule was found in thyroid gland. fnac was also done which ruled out any malignancies in the nodule. I was also diagnosed with high cholesterol level. the scanning report of my neck band abdomen area attached here. result of fnac and lipid profile are also attached.

I would like to know about treatments for thyroid nodule and high cholesterol in Ayurveda.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for consulting hcm,

I have gone thrugh your medical history.

as your thyroid nodule seems to benign so no need to worry.

unless any growth in the nodule size and abnormality in TSH level we need to address the issue. Otherwise it will not cause harm.
kindly let me know any physical abnormality or any clininal finding observed at present and followed by your nodule.
so that I can guide you for proper advise under ayurveda.

High level cholestrol will be managed and controlled by ayurvedic medicine.
Kanchanara gugulu 2 tab twice aday.
aloe vera juice 30 ml once in a day.

Diet :
Add fruit and vegetables more in your daily intake.add more millet, grains and lessen your fat food.
