I was diagnosed with Hashimotos in 2007. It wasnt until 2009 that my thyroid was actually palpitated and the doctor thought she felt a small nodule. An ultrasound was performed in April of this year and the results came back normal but I do have hyperemeia of the right lobe. I recently visited her again because of continuing fatigue and she pulled up the actual ultrasound and pointed out a 'pseudo nodule' on the right lobe. She had spoken with a collegue of hers and they came to the conclusion that it was a pseudo nodule and that we will watch it over the next year or so. My question is, why would a fine needle aspiration not be performed to see whether or not it is a worry? How can they be so sure it is a pseudo nodule without doing a FNA on it? I would like to also note that she did palpitate it again recently and felt nothing, she said that the 'pseudo nodule' was well within my thyroid.
I would go get a second opinion you need a further evaluation.I had hashimotos and ended up with thyroid cancer.I also had a nodule when first diagnosed which was 27 years ago.They did fine needle aspiration and put me on thyroid hormone,[supression therapy]I would not wait around like the dr is telling you,go seek out another dr.I had a endo that did nothing for me until I switched Dr.and I had total thyroidectomy.Also sometimes they can miss the nodule through fine needle aspiration.Hope this helps.
