I think I was misdiagnosed 8yrs ago when I had my daughter I had all symptoms of hypothyroid disease, but was told it was post partum depression. I insisted on tests at the time, My thyroid tests all normal. I had an ultrasound which showed a nodule on the right that was too small to biopsy. I had looked up at the time the characteristics of the nodule and it appeared to me to have some malignancy signs. Today after suffering with hair loss, fatigue, low enerygy, low libido, migraines, sinus drainage, ear fullness, enlarged axillary lymph nodes at times, , weight gain, laziness, sore throat, hoarseness, and other symptoms, I went and had test done, again thyroid test normal, ultrasoudn showed the nodule from 2005 increased in size 50% . Had an ultrasound guided biopsy showed a thyroid adenoma. My question is can this be cancer. The ENT guy did not say if it was he did say that the cytology did not show any malignant looking cells. I read that the adenoma could possibly still be malignant because the cytology did not use the central core of the adenoma. Should I pursue this and ge t a second opinion?
