Three years ago when I first found out I was pregnant my doctor ran thyroid blood tests and then an ultra sound. I was never told the results and from then on I was seen by my obgyn who also said nothing to me about these results. I thought nothing of it. Fast forward to recent. Been having issues. Raspy voice, clearing my throat allot, dark spots on my skin headaches, fatigue and muscle soreness. My new doctor send me to endo who finds my results and tells me I had cyst back in 2014 and he wants to recheck. Obviously a shock to me. But I went and redid the tests.
My blood work both time are the low end of normal.
Here is what I'm concerned with the ultra sound findings.
FINDINGS: Right thyroid lobe measures 5.9 x 1.6 x 1.4 cm. Multiple cystic lesions are noted in the right thyroid gland with largest cyst measuring 0.4 cm. One of the cysts has a small echogenic focus within it.
Left thyroid gland measures 5.7 x 1.6 x 2.3 cm. There is a complex cyst with some flow noted in the left thyroid lobe measuring 3.3 x 2.3 x 1.7 cm with echogenic foci noted within the wall . Smaller 0.4 cm cyst is noted in left thyroid lobe.
Findings: Right thyroid lobe measuring 5.3 cm length x 1.9 cm transverse x 2.0 cm AP. Complex, mixed echo density nodule with internal and marginating vascular flow mid right thyroid lobe measuring 5 mm diameter. Measure slightly larger than similar finding prior study. Slightly more anteriorly, cystic-appearing nodules x2 largest measuring 6 mm x 7 mm x 4 mm with internal septation. Slightly more caudal cystic appearing nodule measuring 4 mm maximal dimension. Evidence of similar changes prior study.
Left thyroid lobe measures 5.2 cm length x 1.8 cm transverse x 1.3 cm AP dimension. Multiple nodules noted with a large complex appearing nodule with internal and marginating vascular flow demonstrated lower pole left thyroid lobe measuring 1.5 cm x 1.1 cm x 1.1 cm. This measures smaller than prior study. Slightly more superiorly, complex appearing cystic appearing nodule demonstrated measuring 7 mm x 5 mm x 5 mm. Several previously noted nodules left thyroid lobe appear to have resolved
Should I be concerned I don't have a follow up for 5 weeks. The ultra sound doctor said to call my doctor by Friday if he hasn't called. He isn't in until Tuesday. Just looking to ease my mind with information
