Hello I Made,
Thank you for your question.
It was mentioned in the results of your supporting examination that there was a lump in the right neck measuring 2.7 x 1.9 cm with the impression of struma cystica dextra and FT4 laboratory results 1.44 and TSH 0.777.
Basically, a lump in the thyroid can be caused by an increase or deficiency of thyroid hormone. It is said that you have FT4 1.44 and TSH 0.777 which indicates that you have an increase in thyroid hormone. An increase in thyroid hormone can cause nodules or lumps in the thyroid gland in the neck.
It is said that the result or impression of the lump you are experiencing is struma cystica dextra, which means that the lump in the right thyroid is a cyst. Nodules in the thyroid itself can be distinguished variously, one of which is a thyroid lump in the form of a cyst or a thyroid cyst, where the lump is filled with fluid or blood. Which is where a thyroid cyst can be expressed as a benign tumor.
The cause of an increase in thyroid hormones or lumps is due to excess iodine salt, heredity, and radiation exposure in the neck. The treatment for thyroid nodules is by the method of removal. Although this is a benign tumor, a lump can enlarge and be life-threatening. Therefore, my advice is that you immediately consult a surgeon to get a nodule.
May be useful. Always healthy 😊
