Recent physical examination found thyroid nodules. Three members of the family have found thyroid nodules. I don't know why. Which good doctor can tell? thank you!
Hello, if all three members of the family are diagnosed with thyroid nodules, this situation may be related to their usual eating habits and genetics, high or low iodine nutrition level. In addition, it may be caused by mental factors. It is recommended to go to the hospital for examination and treatment under the guidance of doctors in time.
Thyroid nodules are abnormal hyperplasia of thyroid cells, which are generally benign. If three people in a family have detected thyroid nodules, this situation may be related to genetic factors. If there are no clinical symptoms, they can be rechecked regularly. If there is a trend of pain and gradual increase, they can choose surgical treatment
Hello, you said that thyroid nodules were found in all three human body examinations. It may be a coincidence, not genetic or contagious. We should check whether the nodule is a hypoechoic or hyperechoic nodule, whether the boundary is clear, whether the shape is regular, the aspect ratio, and whether there are calcification, blood flow and other manifestations inside. It is recommended to go to thyroid surgery to see if it needs to be treated.
