A 24-year-old female asked:
Follow-up thyroid us shows new "ill defined hypoechoic hypervascular nodule" that is 6x5x5 mm. is this significant? i see my doc next week but curious

Not necessarily: The nodule is very small. Ill defined means they couldn't be sure if it was there. In something this small and ill-defined, i often don't worry too much about it. I would re-ultrasound again in 1 year to see if it changes.
