Past December a routine blood test showed my thyroid is hyperactive. Last month, having the blood tests done again, my thyroid was still overactive. My doctor sent me for an ultrasound test that showed a few nodules on my thyroid, one being big (1.5 cm) on the left side. Then he sent me for a radioactive uptake scan, which showed a big nodule, on the right side this time. Yesterday I had appointment for biopsy (Fine needle aspiration). They used the ultrasound machine to see and guide them where the nodule was. I was scared like crazy, as you can imagine (and I still am), so when I heard the doctor that he cannot find any nodule on either side, only a few small, I was really happy but puzzled also. What in the world is going on? Is possible that the uptake radioactive substance shrank the nodule? Why the 1st sonogram saw the nodule on one side and the scan on the other side?
I went back to my endo who said that he will put me on radioactive medication and we will follow up in 3/6 months with more ultrasound tests.
Did anybody experience something similar?
