Kundenfrage

I have hyperthyroidism. I have a bump in my neck. It is a cold nodule in my neck. My specialist has checked it after ultrasound and Scintigraphy. Now the specialsit has told me that we will need to do another test like MIBI Scan or Fine Needle Biopsy of Thyroid Nodules. According to German rules, patient has to choose from either of these tests.

I am 31 years old and do not know which test is better and more logical.
Please advice.

Good evening,

A fine needle biopsy is not as exact as a MIBI Scan; I would prefer it only when the nodule is oartly firm, partly watery (a cyst). There may be benigne parts in a maligne nodule; a problem, when the puncture does not hit the maligne part.

The MIBI Scan does not hurt you. If it is inconspicious, you know nearly for sure (97%) that there ist no maligne tissue in your thyroid. I would prefer it. In case of a positive result chances of malignity rise up to 21%. I would then decide to remove the lump.

I wish you all the best!
