Say No Thanks to Screening Thyroid Ultrasounds
Recent notice from an Illinois hospital which should be avoided at the risk of your health.
Screening thyroid ultrasounds are bad. Only have a thyroid ultrasound if you have indications.
30-50 % of the population have small harmless nodules. Once found it is hard to not have a biopsy.
This will get you a possible unnecessary thyroid surgery. If in doubt see and endocrinologist before you consider a SCREENING THYROID ULTRASOUND.
FREE – This painless, non-invasive ultrasound study of your thyroid is performed by an ultrasound technology technician. This test can help identify suspicious nodules that could indicate a need for further testing or find nodules that are too small to feel during a physical examination. No appointment is necessary; walk-ins welcome. For more information, call 217-876-2850.
