is thyroidectomy the ONLY way to determine if a papillary lesion / follicular neoplasm is benign or malignant?

My wife recently underwent FNAB for the thyroid gland and the findings were:
Suggest thyroidectomy for a definitive diagnosis.
Microscopic Description:
Smears disclose a fairly cellular aspirate composed of cohesive clusters of follicular cells, in attempt to form acini and short papillary fronds. The cells show vesicular nuclei, with focal areas of pleomorphism. The background is hemorrhagic containing thin colloid materials and few mixed leukocytes.

I really would like to know if the it is benign or malignant but is there any other way besides invasive surgery? Thanks a lot in advance for all the answers and help.

If FNAB demonstrate follicular neoplasm , we must perform thyroid lobectomy for determining if it's malignant or not , and regarding to this , we will design the further definite and main operation .

There is no way other than this yet .

In some situations , we can perform total thyroidectomy as a plan to determine the permanent pathology at first ( there is several indications : old patients , mass more than 4 cm , ... ) .

But about Papillary neoplasm it's somewhat different : we can plan for a definite operation , also with a FNAB .  (+ info)

In using the neoplasm table, what do you do when there is no code in cancer in situ?

When using the neoplasm table in the ICD-9-CM, how would one code cancer in situ of the temporal lobe?

You'll never find it there.
What you're probably looking for is under skin: Ca in situ of temple or similar.  (+ info)

How do you treat superior orbital fissure syndrome when the etiology is a neoplasm?

It's for school and I can't find the answer anywhere!

Superior orbital fissure syndrome consists of retro-orbital pain, paralysis of extra ocular muscles, impairment of first trigeminal branches and frequent involvement of the optic nerve.
One must treat the neoplasm. That depends on its type. A glioblastoma would be treated differently from a lymphoma for example.  (+ info)

Is thyroidectomy advisable if your FNAB states that 'follicular neoplasm cannot be totally ruled out'?

In Ultrasound results, there are no calsifications
presence of complex solid nodules
3.1 x 2.1 x 1.8 cm size of solid nodular

I would think it would be the smart choice. There's no point in risking possible malignant neoplasms in such a pertinant area. I'd also get a second opinion and set of tests.  (+ info)

I had an MRI done and the Dr. wrote down I have a "Neoplasm of occioital bone". What does that mean?

I searched the web and believe "occioital bone" may be a misspelling or abbreviation. Is this something to be worried about?
Thanks! The Doctor wasnt really that nice and seemed to be in a rush. Maybe I'll ask my primary care.

Most like it was occipital bone, which is at the back of your head. I did research on "neoplasm". It means a growth or a tumor, NOT synonomous with cancer. If it was anything to be concerned about, your doctor would have told you immediately. If you're still uneasy, ask him.  (+ info)

Difference between pancreatic neoplasm and cystic neoplasm?

Anyone who knows, I would greatly appreciate it.
I would like for those who are in the medical profession to answer this question, or someone with real knowledge. I'm not looking for insensitive answers, simply the facts.
I must add that this is specific to a low density mass in the pancreas, very small in size. No diagnostic tests have been done other than a CT that detected it.

pancreatic neoplasm occurs in the pancreas
cystic neoplasm can occur anywhere in the body.  (+ info)

How is heredity, malnutrition, neoplasm, and infection linked with heart disease?

Hereditary is proved to have links with your chances of getting heart disease. Fortunately there are measures which can be taken to stave the development of it. Good diet, exercise, weight maintainance, keeping cholesterol levels down (diet and drugs if need be).
Infection can cause damage to the structures of the heart eg Rheumatic fever can damage the valves, or inflammation of the muscle or layers of the heart.
As far as Im aware neoplasm isnt linked;  (+ info)

i am on steriods ,and tablets,but lost my job today cos DR wouldnt pass me on dvla medical ?

DLA is disabled living allowance is payable when you a an issue that affects your ability to lead a normal life and when you need assistance with day to day living issues.
Hard to get nowadays.

You will probably be able to get incapacity benefit with a malignant lesion of the pituitary gland and the best people to take you through your options are the benefits people at the Job Centre.
As a genuine claimant and having lost your job due to ill health they have to offer you a medical assessment to see what you can and cannot do. If you have double vision then your employment prospects are severely limited.

On Monday get yourself down the Job Centre and get the ball rolling as there are other benefits that may be better for you than DLA. The lower level of DLA is only about £14 a week. You will need more that that to live!  (+ info)
