I just posted about this in my topic question, Does My Thyroid FNA Sound Worrisome Some Hurthle Cells found. I just had a year follow up ultrasound of my 3 small thyroid nodules that were found by accident on an ultrasound I asked for in October 2006.
2 of them grew about 2mm bigger and even though the University of Penn radiologist doesn't seem concerned (yeah and the nodules are *not* in *her* thyroid!) should I be concernced? I know that many benign thyroid nodules grow too and recent research found that many small papillary thyroid cancers didn't grow in 8 years!
So growth or lack of growth often isn't that helpful. If anyone knows anything about this I would really appreciate a respnse.
