Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with multinodular goiter, the largest nodule is solid and cold - 5cm x 2cm although it may have grown since the initial ultrasound, as I can definitely feel it more now, pressure in neck (especially when lying down), swallowing difficulties etc. Another is 3.8cm x 1.4cm and the rest around 2cm. I am not currently medicated and TSH fluctuates from around 1 to around 3, FT3 has only been checked once so far and was 4.8 (3.5-6.5) and FT4 was slightly high at 20.6 (9.8-18.8). Not sure why FT4 is high when FT3 is lower than mid range.
The FNA off the biggest nodule came back as benign follicular nodule with copious thin colloid, haemosiderin-laden and foamy macrophages and hurthle cell change. Just wondering if anyone has any insight in this FNA, as I read some type of cancer can’t be diagnosed by FNA and this might include follicular nodules and hurthle cells?
