My pelvic ultrasound results say focus of heterogeneous echogenicity at the mid endometrial canal may reflect polyp or thrombus. Is this bad?
1.4x1.6x1.2 heterogenous hyperechoic focus on right ovary. Report said it "may" be a hemorrahagic cyst? Its painful. Likelihood of cancer? Will bc help?
Cyst: This is most likely what is called a "corpus lute un cyst". It arises during the normal process of ovulation, an on occasion can cause pain. It is a problem that your bodiy's mechanisms will solve on their own. It is not cancer. Your cyst is very small and will most likely never require any surgery - but the pain can last as long as 6-8 weeks (hopefully much shorter for you!). ...Read more
Recent ultrasound showed nodule on thyroid 1.3x0.8x1cm heterogenous calcification, hyperechoic focu likely due to colloid can you interpret this?
Most nodules benign: Thyroid nodules are often detected incidentally when a patient has neck us. Nodules may range in size from several mm to several cm. With frequency of ultrasounds obtained, incidental thyroid nodules are frequently found. Us can describe nodules and sometimes infer likelihood of benign vs malig. Biopsy most accurate with some specialists advocating biopsy of nodules greater than 1cm others 1.5 cm. ...Read more
Mass: Please clarify your question. Where is the mass? ...Read more
Yeah, a concern:
Regular structures are generally not problems. Uniform and regular fluid filled sacs can be due to many reasons. Cancer or infection are not likely to be included. If, however, the sac is irregular, then infection or cancer are not impossible.
Otherwise depends on the location. Even a cyst inside the skull can be fatal due to pressure on the brain. A heterogeneous cyst on the back of the hand less ...Read more
Heterogeneous: Heterogeneous myometrium means that the texture of the myometrium is not the same across the length of it. It is probably OK if no discrete lesion is seen. If there are symptoms that cannot be explained by it, it may be reasonable to have a follow up ultrasound in 3 months to see if there has been a change in the appearance. ...Read more

May be just a...: "heterogeneous" may be just used to describe the tissue texture of testis as seen on ultrasound or microscopic tissue exam to denote having various components with different sound reflections or histological looking. If more doubt, ask doctor for detail. ...Read more
Mixed echo pattern: Heterogeneous echogenic means ultrasound characteristics of area examined have combination of none, low and high echogenic pattern. This is compared to diffusely homogeneous pattern where diffusely same echo pattern. Certain lesions can be diagnosed by their echo pattern. ...Read more
Hashimoto's: Hashimoto's thyroiditis can cause this. What is your tpo ab level? You may be sensitive to dairy and wheat as well.

A growth: I assume this is a thyroid nodule which basically mean you have a growth on the thyroid. It's very common and not a cause for concern as long as you follow it again in the future to make sure if it's not growing. Biopsy of the nodule will help determine if it's benign or cancerous. The risk of cancer is very low, approx 5%. ...Read more
Need more info..: Where is it located? What is the size? There are many things that are "heterogeneous" from benign lipomas, to benign thyroid nodules, to benign ovarian lesions, etc, etc. Need much more clinical information to try to guess what this ccould be. Your doctor who requested the evaluation would be best to ask this question to. ...Read more
I had a transvag us done and they found heterogeneous myometrium. Also mild amount of fluid. Everything else looked normal. Is something wrong?
What does this mean?? 1. The isthmus appears thickening measuring 0.4 cm, unchanged. 2. The right lobe is heterogeneous and enlarged measuring 5.
More info needed: More background needed as to why the test was done and what symptoms you are having but without knowing anything else, it sounds like you may have a goitre which is an enlarged overactive thyroid gland. However there are other organs in the body that this could be referring to, so as I said. More info is needed to give you a definite answer ...Read more
Mixed echogenicity: Thyromegaly means enlarge ment of thyroid gland. Heterogeneous means irregular texture, not same echogenicity throughout gland. No large discrete nodules are seen. Therapy is determined by evaluation that includes thyroid function tests. ...Read more
Small fibroids: The radiologist may want to say that he wouldn't be surprised if you turned out to have fibroid changes in your uterus on surgery, not overt fibroids, but very early beginning stages. But then again, "mildy heterogenous uterine echotexture" is in the eye of the beholder. ...Read more
: Slightly coarse and heterogeneous hepatic parenchymal echotexture without substantial change. No focal lesion identified.?
More to it than this: This looks to be part of a report of an ultrasound and this portion of the report is discussing the echotexture pattern of the liver. Nothing in what you posted is very concerning. No focal lesion identified is a good thing, but the whole report including reason study done would be more helpful. Please discuss findings with doctor who ordered it for you. Best of luck with this. Dr R ...Read more
Is a heterogeneously hypoechonic nodule 1.4x 1.1 x 1.1 cm nodule with microlobulated margins with no calcifications a possible malignant one?
I'm sorry I can't: Give you my best answer because I don't know what tissue/organ you are talking about -- breast? Thyroid? Liver? In general, when a nodule is heterogeneous, meaning various densities within the nodule, vs homogenous (when it is all the same), one is more suspicious. Microlobulations may add to this. I would not feel safe saying this is a benign nodule. Good wishes. ...Read more
