This is what the thyroid study says:
Clinical Information: Thyroid Nodules
24 hour RAIU 11.4% (Normal 8-32%)
Thyroid scan done with Technetium. There is an area of lack of uptake in the middle to lower part of the left thyroid lobe laterally and in the middle of the right thyroid lobe laterally.
Interpretation: Abnormal study. Areas of lack of uptake to both thyroid lobes.
This study was compared with thyroid ultrasound which described non-homogeneous texture with multinodular pattern, the largest nodules are 1.9 x 1.3 cm in the upper pole on the right thyroid lobe and 1.8 x 1.3 in the mid pole of the left thyroid lobe and 1.6 x 0.6 cm in the isthmus. The nodule in the left thyroid lobe corresponds to the area of the lack of uptake on the thyroid scan. In the right thyroid lobe, the cold area is within the upper and mid part, so the nodule also corresponds to the area of lack of uptake on the thyroid scan. Isthmus nodule not seen on the thyroid scan.
The report does go on to recommend a thyroid biopsy which is already scheduled but neither my doctor nor I understood the lab report (see above) from the nuclear testing on the thyroid. Any help would be most appreciated. Further, what are the chances that this is thyroid cancer? And what is the appropriate treatment for this thyroid condition (patient is also on synthroid for under-functioning thyroid)?
