There is a nodule in the thyroid gland. The doctor is not sure if B-ultrasound is done. Let's have a reexamination in three months. Is this serious?
Small thyroid nodules generally have no problems, no symptoms and do not need special treatment, but they must be rechecked. If there is growth or other changes with previous thyroid nodules, they will be compared through examination and then given relevant treatment, which can ensure the health of the body
Whether the thyroid nodule is serious or not needs to be qualitative. If it is a benign nodule without symptoms, it can be followed up regularly for observation. However, surgical treatment is required for the large volume of the nodule, resulting in poor breathing or even dyspnea. For those nodules that secrete thyroid stimulating hormone, antithyroid drug treatment, radioactive iodine treatment or surgical treatment are required. For malignant nodules, the resection site includes not only the nodules, but also part of the surrounding thyroid tissue, or even most or all of the thyroid
In view of the current problem of this thyroid nodule, we need to go to the hospital for review regularly. The key point is to understand the number, size, shape, boundary, range, vertical and horizontal ratio of thyroid nodules, which are helpful to judge the specific nature of thyroid nodules. In addition, it is suggested to review the thyroid hormone level, focusing on the thyroid stimulating hormone level.
