After having a 'poor sample' of my thyroid nodule taken I've been told it is hypoechoic 25mm and described as thy1. The endo has told me she would normally tell anyone else not to worry about it but as I'm anxious she will reluctantly refer me to a surgeon for his opinion. I was diagnosed with autoimmune hypothyroidism last November and have been on levothyroxine since my last blood test showed my ranges were all within normal range. Is it usual to be casual about a thy1 diagnosis on a poor sample? Or am I being over anxious? As always, I appreciate any advice or similar experiences. I had an ultrasound in December which detected no nodules. So it's sprung up very quickly. Thanks in advance.
