I thought I would post my MRI results. This might be my last post since I found out they tested my Thryoglobulin (TG) and Anti-thyroglobulin-Antibody (TG-Ab) and they were normal. (I found out I was getting billed seperatly from the lab, my total bill right for testing and imaging, and doctors visits is about $4,500.00.
Anyways, my MRI said slightly to the left of midline anterior to the trachea and superior to the thyroid gland, there is a 5-6 mm diameter area of abnormal signal intensity. (Basically in conclusion they are saying I have a pretracheal lesion slightly to the right of midline adjacent to the strap muscles). It goes on to say there is also a differential diagnosis that includes a pretracheal lymph node and atypical throglossal duct cyst.
Therefore, I’m not a doctor but it would seem that I have a lesion, and or cyst which has been in my neck 7 months and probably is causing my thyroid related problems (since my antibodies are negative, my uptake is less than 1% [unless I was contaminated with iodine], and Prednisone did very little for me). Has anyone ever heard of a lesion related case like this, and if so does anyone know where I can research it??
Sorry for the long post too
