Confused about overall blood work, etc.- Possible cancer

I guess I'm just so confused about all this.  My doctor has not explained much since she wanted to wait for all the tests to come back.  I do know that they found a 1 cm left solid lower pole nodule with partial rim like calcification and a surrounding capsule or pseudo capsule.  My CEA was a bit high so that adds to the equation, I think.  

My biopsy was yesterday.  I now wait for test results to come back.

This is what my bloodwork show:

Thyroglobulin, Antibody      <1.0
Thyroglobulin, Serum           5.9
Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO)    24
TSH-ICMA                          1.1
Free T4 by Dialysis/Mass spec 1.2

I believe, the bloodwork looks be be in normal range???  Any thoughts on this?  I'm so confused about all of this.  Hoping someone might be able to explain more.  Thanks so very much for any help you can provide.

I just responded to your other thread with the lab results included.

It's best to keep all your questions in the same thread so we don't keep asking you for the same information.  

I can understand your doctor not wanting to say too much until all the tests come back, because she could be giving erroneous information.  There are indications, but your doctor wants to be certain because she doesn't want you jump to conclusions that might not be accurate.  

If you've already had the FNA, those results will tell whether you have cancer or not.

Thank you.  Sorry about that.  I've never been on a forum.  Wasn't sure how this works.  thanks for your answer.  I understand what you are say and I guess it's just a matter of time before we get results back.  Thanks for your help with this.

Not a problem... it just gets kind of confusing when there are multiple threads going with the same questions and everyone is asking for the same information.  Anyone who wants can chime in on the other thread and post their thoughts, as well.  It takes time to get results.  We'll stay with you on the other thread and answer all the questions we can.  Be sure to post on there when you get your final results.
