Hi, I was diagnosed by my GP with Overactive thyroid in Nov 13. I was referred to Christies in Manchester. On my 1st app (late nov) my neck was examined and I was told I had a very large goitre they did some more blood tests etc and it had nose dived and went majorly underactive. 2nd app in dec I was prescribed 50mg levo no neck examination. 3rd app late jan i had another neck examination and was told I had a nodule on my left hand side. This was not mentioned in 1st app (just that i had a large goitre) so either it was missed or it has grown in the space of just under 2 months anyway I had more bloods which lead to an increase of levo to 75mg and I was sent for an ultrasound and FNA. I had this 5 days ago. I'm a bit freaked out as when I got in there the nurse said I might not need the FNA a lot of people don't end up having it and that it depends on what he can see. A few mins into the scan he just looked at me and said yes you will need a biopsy. Then went ahead with the FNA. I got the feeling he knows what he saw but he didn't say anything what so ever and I didn't ask, at the time as I just went blank. They said results would take a week but I can't get an app until the 19th feb which I said was too late and could they ring with the results. So from anyone's exp can things be seen on an ultra sound scan and does it really take a week ? They seem to ring me the next day with blood results etc. Also since the FNA my neck has been so sore but it was only a tiny needle ! Sorry if I have waffled just wanted to give the full picture. Thanks
