Is The Lymph Node A Result Of Hyperthyroidism?
Hello doc, my ft4 hormone is very high, says my doctor, hyper thyroid. And I also have lymph lumps on the right and left necks, what I want to ask is whether the lymph node is affecting my hyper thyroid, it’s not dangerous.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
There are several possibilities that can cause symptoms of a lump in the neck, including:
Enlargement of the thyroid gland (thyroid), can be caused by a decrease or increase in thyroid hormone levels, or malignancy of the thyroid gland
Enlarged lymph nodes, can be caused by viral / bacterial infections, gland tuberculosis, lymph node tumors, or spread of cancer from other organs
Enlargement of the salivary glands (parotid), can be caused by viral / bacterial infections or parotid tumors
Based on the information that the results of laboratory tests indicate your FT4 hormone increases, the possible cause of a lump in the neck leads to thyroid gland problems. However, other differential diagnoses cannot be ruled out without a more complete and systematic history taking and a comprehensive physical examination by a doctor.
You are advised to consult directly with a specialist in internal medicine so that proper evaluation and treatment can be done. In addition to history and physics, the doctor may consider other investigations if there are indications, for example: TSH hormone testing, peripheral blood, ultrasound (USG), and biopsy. The treatment given will be adjusted to the diagnosis of the disease causing the symptoms. The prognosis of the danger / absence of symptoms also depends on the disease that underlies the symptoms, the quality of treatment, age, and your general health condition.
