High TSH normal T3/T4

Hi I wanted to share my story, because I was in the dark for so long. I no longer have a thyroid, due to cancer, and have been on supplements. My TSH rose high but my T3 T4 levels were normal. I heard "possible pituitary tumor". The interesting thing at the same time liver scans indicated two large hemangiomas on my liver (these are benign tumors both were about 10cmx12cmx9cm). My first doctors said "no connection", but since the tumors have been excised, my TSH is returning to normal. I can happily say the hospital is writing a case study on me. Although I am due for more tests, there is a possible connection here. These tumors are more common in women and I have read pregnancy and birth control may cause rapid growth. Maybe for those cases where there is no answer, perhaps this could be a causal factor in others. Thank you.

Hello

Was there ever any study done on the correlation of the hemangiomas? I have the same situation and also have the liver hemangiomas. Is there a study poted that you are aware of?

Also, how were the tumors excised.?
