Often represents scar tissue and as such it never goes away but it may be due to an active disease. The doctor who ordered the test needs to go over the implications of this finding with you. Best to you. ...Read more

Thoughts on 1.4 cm isoechoic thyroid nodule with peripheral calcification and moderate blood flow. Also round lymph node on other side of neck?

Consult Endocrinedoc: An Endocrinologist is the best doctor to guide you in this matter. This thyroid nodule needs close follow up and will likely require a FNAC(needle biopsy) to confirm the diagnosis. But you have sometime to find the right doctor. Such nodules are slow to change, so a follow up evaluation in 6 mo may be another alternative which I am sure your present doctor would have offered as one of your choices ...Read more
