  • Typically we do not biopsy nodules less than 10 mm. (
  • My endocrinologist saw my ultrasound and said to me that the solid nodule seems to be benign because it has not irregular border, not calcifications, and not blood flow, but it should be confirms by biopsy which is not possible to perform at this time because of the small size of the nodule. (
  • b) The CT image from the CT guided biopsy showing new nodules. (
  • Having had 6 nodules (3 on each side) and a Thyroidecomy would think that a biopsy should be performed to check for cancer. (
  • Management of thyroid nodules (TNs) with indeterminate fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) has been a major challenge for thyroid experts. (
  • Ultrasound is also frequently used to guide the needle into a nodule during a thyroid nodule biopsy. (

  • If you have an over-active thyroid due to nodules, it needs to be treated w/radioactive iodine. (
  • Sometimes the doctors advise surgery or radioactive iodine treatment for thyroid nodules, but most often they may ask you to leave them alone and have them monitored on regular basis. (
  • Nodules are referred to as either "hot" or "cold," depending on the amount of radioactive iodine it concentrates, or takes up, when testing for the type of nodule it is. (
  • Radionuclide scanning (using a radioactive isotope given orally to measure the amount of radioactive iodine the nodule concentrates) can also be performed to determine whether the lump is 'hot' or 'cold. (
