I have been diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroidosis. Up till now all biopsies indicated the nodule I have on the right lobe was not malignant. On my most recent biopsy it states there are rare groups of Hurthle cells and no colloid present. Differential diagnosis was hurthle cell neoplasm. Up till now I paid no attention to the issue and nodule as the doctor stated it was benign and common with Hashimotos. I had never heard the term hurthle cell. I am not even on meds. I have now read and researched and realize my situation is potentially serious. I am now scheduled to go for another FNB. I don't know what to think or expect and I am afraid. I would really appreciate feedback on what to expect and what to do.
