A Thyroglobulin Blood Test in Mattannur measures the levels of thyroglobulin in your blood. The test is mostly used as a tumor marker test to help guide thyroid cancer treatment.
The goal of this test is to monitor the amount of formation of the thyroid cells. If the amount of cells is beyond a certain level, it is deemed to be negatively consequential to the health of an individual. The normal range is 3 to 40 nanograms per milliliter in a healthy individual. If a patient's thyroglobulin level is found to be increasing, then this suggests the possible present or future formation of a tumor, at which point, immediate consultation is required.
The abnormal rise in the levels can be traced through some common symptoms. If you observe any of these symptoms, kindly refer to a doctor in Mattannur

Why is this test essential?
A thyroglobulin test is an essential test that needs to be conducted if you succumb to the symptoms of thyroid hormone dysfunction such as abnormal weight gain and goiter. It is important to get the test done as it may well indicate if there is an augmentation of a tumor or the possibility of cancer in the patient.
How does the test work?
The test is initiated when a blood sample is acquired from the patient. After the sample is taken, it is sent for further tests that measure the amount of Tg in the blood sample. If the amount of formation of the Tg substance is higher than the normal levels, it is deemed to be a disorder like a thyroid, or even cancerous.
What happens if Thyroglobulin levels are high?
The normal levels are in the range of 3 to 40 nanograms per milliliter in a healthy individual. If your detectable levels are 5ug/L, there is a possibility of some normal thyroid or cancer tissue. If the range is on a rise without the rise in TSH, then there is a likely chance of thyroid cancer. Persistent levels indicate that there are still thyroid cells in the body.
What causes levels to rise?
Thyroglobulin is produced by both normal and cancerous thyroid cells. Thus, if your body has any cancer, the thyroid gland starts creating antibodies in response to the sudden threat. This, in turn, causes thyroid dysfunction, and can very possibly lead to the formation of a tumor in your body.
