Hello all, I guess I should start with my history I am a 33 year old female and was diagnosed with a mild case of Hypothyriodism 2 years ago, I take a low does synthroid 12.5 mg a day. I recently went to the doc and she felt a lump on my thyroid so I went in for an Ultra sound. My results are as follows.....
*Right lobe is mildly enlarged measuring 49x11X19 mm in upper pole anteriorly is a 6x5 mm solid well circumscribed nodule. Adjacent 4mm. cystic nodule
*Left lobe is mildly enlarged at 50x16x16 mm. The echotexure is slightly inhomogeneous and the contour is slightly nodular, but w/o distinct measurable nodule.
*Isthmus is mildly enlarged
* No adenopathy is seen in the rightward neck. In the superior left neck is a 17x16x6 mm. node partially fatty replaced and nonspecific
CONCLUSION
* Mild multinodular goiter
* Mildly enlarged 17x16x6 node leftward neck with benign architecture, nonspecific.

My question is what does this mean?...lol
Is the next step a biopsy? I ask because I have read that they will only do one if the measurements are over 1cm.
The doc who ordered wants to send me to an Endo, I'm assuming due to the solid node but I do not have insurance so I can't even find someone to see me. And my CBC was normal as well as my Thyroid screening.
I am going for second opinion as well.
Does this seem like something I should worry about??? Thanks all
