Thyroid nodules

Nodules are lumps or abnormal masses within the thyroid. Nodules can be caused by benign cysts, benign tumors, or, less commonly, by cancers of the thyroid. Nodules may be single or multiple and can vary in size. If nodules are excessively large, they may cause symptoms related to compression of nearby structures.

Comment from: sstev, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: November 19

I have been suffering from thyroid nodules my entire life but my thyroid blood work was always normal. I had biopsies performed because I was choking and the nodules could be seen protruding from my throat. The biopsy was benign and I underwent radioactive treatment to shrink the nodules. I have gained so much weight, dry skin, constipated, trouble sleeping, osteoporosis, and restless legs. My doctor won't increase my Synthroid because my blood work is normal. i am almost an anorexic ,desperate to lose weight( I am about 50 pounds overweight eating a 1000 calorie diet, exercising three times a week.
