Complex Cystic Mass On Thyroid
It means: 2cm is the size of the mass. Hypervascular means that the mass has a large number of blood vessels. This mass is on the thyroid. ...Read more
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
Minimally invasive: After ultrasound, biopsy, and scan, if there is still some suspicion that the nodule could be a cancer, it would have to come out. In the or, the surgeon may remove the nodule, wait for a reading from the pathologist, and if benign, do as little as possible to the rest of the thyroid. If the nodule occupied the whole lobe, or was hard to separate, the surgeon may remove the whole lobe. ...Read more
Need more info: Where is the mass? What organ? What symptoms or problem? What led your doctor to order an ultrasound examination? ...Read more
Surgery, yes: Sometimes ultrasounds and scans can show if they are cancerous or not, but a biopsy is better to evaluate that. Many thyroid masses are not cancerous, but when they start to affect your ability to swallow, then they should probably come out. ...Read more

I have a 6mm mass in my left thyroid love and it's considered diffuse heterogeneous. What does this mean?
Nonspecific: A 6 mm thyroid nodule is small. We usually do not worry about nodules under 10 mm. A diffusely heterogeneous thyroid is commonly seen in patients with hashimoto's thyroiditis. This is an autoimmune disorder that can result in an underactive thyroid. You list being on immunosuppressive therapy. If you have one autoimmune disorder, you are at higher risk for another. ...Read more

Urology referral: I would encourage you to seek an evaluation from a urologist who can weigh in on the nature of the mass. I assume the details you described are from a percutaneous biopsy? ...Read more

I have a hypoechoic thyroid on my left, measuring 0.413 x 0.546cm. The left thyroid is markedly reduce un size without mass. What does this mean? Worrie
Your nodule: Is fairly small, and many physicians wouldn't even biopsy it unless it enlarged or there were other factors noted on ultrasound or lab. If your blood levels are normal, don't worry about the left lobe. Check w/your doctor. ...Read more
Need more info: Most pelvic cysts arise from the ovary and are benign. A simple cyst is a fluid filled sac that has very specific characteristics on ultrasound. These are always benign. However, not all "cysts" are simple. There are benign and malignant lesions that are "cystic", but are not simple cysts. Ask your doctor to clarify it for you. ...Read more
Get thyroid checked: Your question does not provide enough information. You need to see an endocrinologist who does thyroid ultrasound and needle biopsy. A solitary "cold" nodule of 5 cm may be worrisome, but a cyst would be less so, same with a "hot nodule". The whole thyroid needs to be assessed. ...Read more
My right adnexal mass is at least partially cystic that demonstrates a homogenous fullness.... What does this mean?
Adenexl fullness.: Comparing what this note means is a bit like tasting wine and telling others what you taste. So you need to talk to the examiner for a translation. My guess the area feels like there is more there than normal and it feels like there are some bubble like areas that could be cysts. ...Read more
U/s-3.6x3.3cm complex mass w/ cystic and solid components on r ov. Cystic lesion w/ internal septation, 2.3cm solid mass on l ovary. Ca? What now?
Possibly: Hypothyroidism can cause swelling and fluid retention. Pcos causes weight gain, but not fluid swelling. However, if your thyroid levels are normal, I would look for a different cause for the swelling. In your age group, the most common causes would be varicose veins, weight related swelling, and/or excess salt intake. ...Read more
Not sure what mean: Cysts within the thyroid contain fluid, typically colloid, sometimes blood. Colloid can be very thick (looks like motor oil). The viscosity has more to do with how long it has been there rather than to whether it is worrisome or not. ...Read more
Thyroid Nodules: Thyroid nodules are solid or fluid-filled lumps that form within your thyroid, a small gland located at the base of your neck, just above your breastbone. The great majority of thyroid nodules aren't serious and don't cause symptoms. Thyroid cancer accounts for a small percentage of thyroid lesions. The "chocolate" part refers to blood in the nodule. Your pathologist can tell if there is a tumor. ...Read more
I have a complex cystic ovarian mass with mural nodularity measuring 4.1 cm. Is this suspicious for malignancy?
I have a right adnexal mass on my ovaries but partially cystic? What is a adnexal mass? What does partially cystic mean?
Variable answer: Adnexal mass refers to the area around the ovary that has an undiagnosed mass by imaging studies or exam. Partially cystic refers to a fluid filled sac or cyst within or around the ovary. It implies that the rest of the mass may be solid. Follow up is important to determine the reason for a mass and whether or not it is increasing in size. Follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

Thyroid u/s reviled “solitary right of midline, 9mm complex cystic nonvascular ismuth nodule”. Should I be worried / biopsy?
Possibly: The ultrasound should be followed up with an appointment with an ear, nose and throat surgeon to discuss biopsy vs an additional nuclear medicine test that can give more information about the nodule. There should also be some lab tests done to measure thyroid hormones. All of that information will be used in making the best decision for you. ...Read more
U/s thyroid shows homogeneous parenchyma on left and right no mass or nodule what does this mean? So what is homogeneous parenchyma?
Good!: Homogeneous parenchyma is just a fancy way for the person reading the report to say the thyroid appears to be similar in texture and color throughout the entire thyroid. This is a good thing as it implies a uniform thyroid without areas of irregularity or inflammation and most people reading these reports will tend to err on the side of caution & at least say there is some irregularity. Good Luck! ...Read more
