Thank you for the question.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the neck. The functions of these glands include:
influencing the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins affecting the work of the heart, in this case the heart rate and the strength of heart muscle contraction affect growth affecting muscle movement. The thyroid produces T3 and T4 hormones which function to regulate metabolism in the body. In your laboratory results, you can find that the T3 and T4 hormones are elevated, meaning that there is a problem with the thyroid gland. However, these results are not sufficient to determine thyroid function. The required thyroid function tests are TSH and Free T4.
Thyroid cancer is a rare cancer. Thyroid cancer is an abnormal growth of cells that occur in the thyroid. Symptoms of thyroid cancer:
swallowing pain sore throat change in voice pain in the neck swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck Not all lumps in the thyroid are called thyroid cancer. Causes of abnormalities in the thyroid such as hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Other tests needed to support a diagnosis of thyroid cancer:
TSH, antithyroid peroxidase, antithyroglobulin If the TSH test is found to be elevated, then you may have inflammation of the thyroid gland. If the antithyroid peroxidase and antithyroglobulin increase, then you may have chronic or long-lasting thyroid gland disorders or malignancy (cancer). Ultrasound CT-scan MRI Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy or biopsy examination with a fine needle to determine cell changes that occur in the thyroid. Treatment of thyroid cancer depends on the type of thyroid cancer and its stage. In some types of thyroid cancer has a chance to be cured. The method of treating thyroid cancer is surgery and may be combined with radiotherapy. Until now, there are no other treatment methods besides the ones I mentioned.
So, in your case it is true that there is a possibility of malignancy or cancer, but this still requires further examination. We recommend that you consult again with your Internal Medicine Specialist to get a deeper explanation.
Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.
