Question: I have … Hyperthyroidism or graves disease, multinodular goitre, cancer?

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I would just like to know whether or not I could rule out graves disease as a cause of my hyperthyroidism. Or could I rule out toxic multinodular goitre or cancer?
I was diagnosed with mild hyperthyroidism in November 2015 t4=31, tsh=0.02 Before anti thyroid drug treatment I had a negative test for anti-TPO antibodies.
After anti-thyroid drug treatment (July 2016), My blood test showed I was now euthyroid. At the same time, I had a tshr antibody test, which was within range.
Now on 5mg carbimazole daily
I have a swollen lymph node in my breast which I noticed in December 2015 and is still there

hi..
the swollen lymph node in your breast doesnt seem to be related to the thyroid complaints you have. you can rule out graves,cancer and toxic multinodular goitre as well. rarely , it may be associated with thyroid disease.

these possiblities can be easily ruled out by a few more blood investigations like tumour markers, mammography or lymph node biopsy.
thanks
