I have hypothyroidism and currently taking .137 MCG. I have noticed that I was sore on the front of my throat so since I was due to have my levels done I had my doctor check it. Next day had a thyroid sono and this morning got the call that I have a 1/2" nodule on my parathyroid. Well I have looked for a message board on parathyroid and can't find one so I am coming here if anyone has had their parathyroids effected and what can I expect. She is scheduling me with a endo.
I am a little po'ed because what little I did find on parathyroidism I have almost all the symptoms. For 12 years I passed kidney stone on a monthly basis and sometimes a couple of times. I was told I produced way too much calcium and had very high calcium levels. Well I was stupid and didn't think to ask good questions. I was told to lay off the dairy products but funny thing is I don't do alot of dairy products. Now I read that kidney stones can be caused by parathyroidism and it could of possibily been fixed and saved me alot of pain! But I guess that is water under the bridge.
Anyhow, I am wondering if I have been having trouble for a long time and I am now scared it could be cancer. Anyone have a nodule on their parathyroid??? I know this is a thyroid area but I didn't know where else to go.
