what are pseudo thyroid nodules and what does it mean?

Jul 17, 2013 · 3mm solid thyroid nodule... in Head & Neck Cancer

I had an ultra sound done about 3 weeks ago and found a “stable” 3 mm solid hyperechoic thyroid nodule. This was a follow up from my November’s ultrasound.

I had an appt with my hormone dr last week and she seemed concerned about it being “solid” (before i think it was cystic)…… she said that my ultra sound reports were conflicting…..she has to get the radilogist to look over them again….

In the meantime, i went yesterday to my endocronologist for my regulary checkup. I asked him about the ultrasound and he said it was fine, not to worry….

my point is….i have been having trouble swallowing for sometime now and it is getting on my nerves, i have to kept something to drink with me all the time b/c i feel like im gagging. One dr is concerned and the other just basically past me off as nothing…..

should i be concerned or not? should i push the issue of further looking into this or not?

Apr 11, 2013 · thyroid nodule in Diabetes/Endocrine System

hey everyone, I was wondering if someone could tell me what it means when you have an ultrasound on your thyroid and it comes back as “echogenic” nodule? It is 3mm right now and the dr who read it said that i should do a 6 month follow up to document the stability……(what does that mean?)

I have had this nodule on my right side for almost 2 years, It is bothersome for me to swallow, especailly when I get sick with allergies. I feel like something is stuck in my throat and wont move. I do have Hashmotosis along with being hypothyroid.

thanks everyone

Oct 23, 2012 · cramping with no ovaries, cervix, or uterus? in Women's Health

Mine still there sometimes but not as bad. I did have a lot of constipation after my hysterectomy. Taking fiber pills seemed to help some but it was just my body getting back in to routine after a shock if that makes any sense. Did you have a complete hyst? I am struggling now with the hormone issue along with thyroid issues.

i do think that is in my future….i talked with my dr today who is going to start me on something called Bentyl for the stomach issues and if that doesn’t help, then something is going on. My family has an issue with colon polys so it could be that…who knows…..

thanks for the reply.

Jun 27, 2012 · cramping with no ovaries, cervix, or uterus? in Women's Health

I have had a hysterectomy almost 3 years ago due to constant female problems…..mainly my ovaries having cysts and rupturing.

Within the last month, my stomach has constantly been bloated everyday, and I am cramping alot. ( I know that this feels exactly like it would if I had my ovaries and a cyst on it)…I am nausous often.

Went to my family dr 2 weeks ago and he did some blood work and checked my kidneys….kidneys were fine…blood work showed a wbc of 3.5 and a platlet count of 128, not to mention my absolute neutrophil count as 1474. All of it is on the low side.

Could this be female related? I have always heard that ovarin cancer can cause swelling of the stomach….but i don’t have any ovaries….

any suggestions please?

thanks
