This is to be co-related to the reason why it was ordered. Does not sound alarming. But ask the ordering MD to explain it to you.

Diffuse heterogeneous pattern of thyroid is associated with diffuse thyroid pathology. Hashimoto thyroiditis and Graves disease ( hyperthyroidism) are examples. Both are autoimmune disorders. In my opinion an endocrinologist can evaluate and advise you best.
