What does an incidental finding of a heterogenous thyroid with tiny nodules mean on a ct of the neck?

Dr. Douglas Bourgon answered

Specializes in Radiology

Very nonspecific: The thyroid gland frequently forms cysts and nodules that are not of clinical concern and the CT appearance is nonspecific. The main concern is to make sure a more rare early thyroid cancer is not present, but this requires a combination of physical exam, thyroid laboratory function tests, and correlation with the ultrasound appearance.
