Broken Thyroid?

From: BrokenThyroid - 3 years 46 weeks ago

I recently had a biopsy of a node which came back benign. There are couple more that have to possible biopsied if they grow. During the biopsy appointment, my doctor referenced an MRI that I had done prior to the appointment. He said that is looks like a piece of my left lobe broke off as I was growing and that piece is down lower than the rest of my thyroid. Have any of you ever heard of this? Should I be concerned?

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Is this good advice?

I have a biopsy scheduled for this week and my Dr said the same thing about a piece breaking off. I have a large nodule and it is causing a lot of pain. He said I shouldn't have pain and that it must be from a piece breaking off and bleeding. Do you experience pain with yours?
