I need some help. I am a 37 year old male and I have been feeling unwell for the last 5 months so i decided to go to the doctor and have a blood test, i have been feeling lethargic, sore neck, sore muscles weak, lack of energy, nausea and weight loss.
My blood work came back with the following results,
TSH - 0.02 mIU/L
FT4 - 41 pmo1/L
FT3 - 14 pmo1/L
The lab tests said the clinical findings are consistent with hyperthyroidism
My doctor referred for me for an ultrasound to understand why so i had that done too and below are the results
The lobes on the thyroid gland are bulky measuring 13ml volume on the right and 9ml on the left. The thyroid echotexture is hererogeneous and shows significantly increased vascularity.
The right lobe contains a solid nodule of 12mm diameter in the interpolar region and a single nodule similar in appearance and solid structure was seen in the lower pole of the left lobe measuring 9mm in diameter. The nodules do not show increased vascularity.
The overall appearance of the thyroid gland is that of mild diffuse enlargement and increased vascularity suggestiing either graves disease or thyroiditis.
A non-suspicious nodule is noted in each lobe. The nodules can be followed by progress examination.
My doctor has now asked me to do a nuclear scan for idonine uptake and she hasn't given me any medication yet. I am not sure what to do and if she should be sending me for FNA as i keep reading online that nodules in males have a higher risk of cancer. Any help would be greatly appreciated I am a nervous wreck at the moment.
