Not very likely: B"sd sounds fairly typical for Hashimoto's thyroiditis, which commonly causes coarse echoes on thyroid US images. Also, nodules are often seen, many of which are pseudonodules due to thyroid inflammation only, and tend to come and go over time. Dr will keep up with serial US to watch for growing or otherwise suspicous nodules that might suggest cancer with need for needle biopsy or surgery
