My md a month ago said due to a recent thyroid test TSH high she referred me to an ENDO. I went to him and i was asked alot of questions, than he checked my neck. That day i had an ultrasound and doc found two med sized nodules. So at that point he decided to get them biopsied. Recently the results came back Suspicious for Follicular neoplasm and Hurthle Cell type. Last year my md diagnosed me with hyperthyroid and my tsh was alittle elevated abit but t3 and t4 were normal. The endo dr recently said she put me on wrong med which was Metha mizole 2 times a day Now he thinks i am now Hypo, My tsh is real high. I have surgery in Aug to remove part my thyroid to see if cancer, he wanted out anyways so down road nodules would not cause Swallowing problems ect. I was told 20 to 30 percent chance of it being cancer Is that correct??

Some of my nails are pulled away from the nail bed and have a milky white appearance. My thyroid levels are in the normal range, but I have nodules on my thyroid glands which are being watched. I removed my acrylics a week ago. My nails would grow out lifting out then rip off. I was to my dermatologist today and he said if my thyroid levels are ok he didn t know what could be causing this. He took some of the nail and looked at it under a microscope and said he did not see any fungus. Do you think I should have more testing done on my thyroid glands? Thank you

My mother is 89 and on hospice care for advanced A.D. she has developed, over past year, an indentation on the top of her skull running left to right about three inches back from the front of the scalp. She has several large nodules on her thyroid, but her endocrinologist declined to pursue with needle biopsy or surgery due to her age and advanced disease, A.D. what do you think could be the cause of the changes in the top of her skull, indentation. She also has had significant loss in brain mass in past 12 years per MRI studies ren years apart.

My psychiatrist added 25 mcg of liothyronine, I started taking it Thursday 3-19, to be increased to 50 mcg after one week to augment my depression that has been resistent to other antidepressants. I don t have enough energy to leave the sofa. I also have panic disorder. I have gained about 35 lbs. in about nine months. I m nervous after reading some of the reviews. Should I be. How long can I safely take this medication. Will my thyroid stop producing the harmone naturally if I stay on this medication? When I come off will my thyroid be normal? I have very high hopes that this will increase my metabolism and give me the energy I m lacking and aid in my depression. Thank you
