After a CT of my cervical spine due to continued worsening of chronic pain symptoms, they discovered an anterior mediastinal mass. I have done "almost" everything from thyroid scan, fine needle biopsy of thyroid, ultrasound of thyroid,parathryoid and neck region, plus a couple of other tests. My calcium and parathyroid as well as thyroid blood levels are all normal, with the exception of my initial parathyroid panel which was sky high. The lesion measured 1.8cm x 1.3cm on the CT in May,2010. In August during the fine needle biopsy, it measured 1.9cm x 1.8cm and there were not enough cells to give a conclusive diagnosis.
My question is this: Who should I see to have any further testing done such as a thoracoscopy, mediastinoscopy, etc? Should I see an Endocrinologist? My primary says she is leaning away from that because not all Endocrinologists can perform testing in the area where the lesion is. It is in a very peculiar place, behind the collar bone.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
