Hi,I am a 45 year old woman,and have hyopthyroid disease,have resently have been experencing a tightness in my throat,it has been since Oct 2013 that my last thyroid test has been done,which was normal.Is there an other test besides the tsh that can be done to determine the health of my thyroid?
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
