Cystic Regions In Thyroid Nodule
Prominent vessels in lobe of thyroid, nodule on other lobe, hypothyroid, inconclusive fna of nodule?
Watch/retest: Unless you have a thyroid cancer history, the nodule is suspicious on ultrasound or other factors are in play -- check serum thyroglobulin and thyroid function. Repeat doctor's exam an ultrasound in a year. Generally of very low significance and found in over 50% of the population. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Many hypodense nodules of the thyroid are benign. ...Read more
Thyroid nodule of the right lobe. Fna indicated follicular lesion-also hypothyroid, family history of malignant thyroid nodules. Options?
Surgery or...: A repeat biopsy combined with an afirma assay test may give you somewhat better guidance, but with your history and risk factors, surgery may be the best option. By the way, why are you taking generic T4 an Armour Thyroid together? There is no way to monitor the dosage properly as the lab tests will be unreliable. Brand name T4 is better, safer and more reliable. ...Read more
Subcentimeter hypodense nodule on left thyroid lobe with coarse focus of calcification---subcentimeter left thyroid nodule.Non-specific in nature.
Thyroid nodules: Most nodules less than 1 cm are not concerning and can be monitored with periodic ultrasounds. Some features such as calcification may heighten concern. Much more information is necessary in your situation. Is there family history of thyroid cancer, personal history of hyper or hypothyroidism, and radiation exposure? You need to discuss this with an endocrinologist and arrange a treatment plan. ...Read more
Complex cystic hypoechoic nodules right parotid gland with internal vascular septations &calcifications Echogenic foci Biopsy in future. Inconclusive?
A single ovoid hypervascular, hypoechoic nodules noted in the right mid gland measuring 0.4x0.3x0.2cm, thyroid. Also a 4mm ovoid nodule found?
Thyroid: the ecoestrutura glandular parenchyma is heterogeneous, individualizing bilaterally presence of predominantly hypoechoic nodular areas.?
Presence of hypoechoic area in hyperechoic thyroid nodule.. What it indicates? Nodule has increased vascularity
Uncertain: There are various characteristics of thyroid nodules on ultrasound, including hyperechoic, hypoechoic, isoechoic, cystic, complex, vascular, calcified, microcalcifications. Unfortunately, none of them can tell you for sure whether the nodule is benign or malignant. In your age group, we would be recommending biopsy of the nodule if it is 1 cm in size or larger. ...Read more
Thyroid ultrasound show mild diffused parenchymal hyper vasuclarity.3mm hyperechoic nodule in the lateral aspect in the left lobe thyroid normal > tsh?
Possibly thyroiditis: Hypervascularity is a typical finding in people with underlying autoimmune thyroiditis (hashimoto's or graves disease). The 3 mm nodule is likely of no significance and can be watched. You need to know your TSH level. Getting thyroid antibodies (thyroid peroxidase, thyroglobulin antibodies) would be helpful in making a diagnosis. ...Read more
Hmm: Microcalcifications in a thyroid nodule are from small calcium deposits in the cells. Thyroid cancer can be associated with this finding, however, benign nodules can also have them. A nodule with microcalcifications should have a fine needle aspiration to help diagnose which it is. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sono showed dominant nodule is a heterogeneous nodule. Evidence of hypoechoic on left and right lobes. Multinodular goiter with all nodules over 1cm. Can this be thyroid cancer.
Small thyroid, heterogenous in echotexture. no mass. ? small nodularity inferior lobe. RT nodule or heterogeneity gland. need interpretation
May need follow up : The provider who ordered the study should have been able to explain the findings to you and whether or not you need any follow up. There is a possibillity you may need a follow up test that looks at whether the areas of nodularity are active hormone producing tissue or whether they are cold spots in the thyroid. Cold spots often have to be looked at in more detail. ...Read more
Thyroid ultrasound1.4x1.1x1.1cm rim calcified nodule left mid thyroid.Well circumscribe hypoechoic1.4x1.9x1cm nodule w/mild internal flow.Is it cancer?
Let's find out: This may be nothing but a colloid nodule in a developing nodular goiter. If the radiologist can't rule out cancer, you may be getting a fine-needle aspiration. With this pattern of calcification, it's unlikely to be an aggressive tumor even if it is cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Heterogeneous thyroid, my ultrasound stated that diffusely heterogeneous thyroid with no discrete cystic or solid nodule identified.
May be autoimmune: Heterogeneous thyroid on ultrasound refers to a thyroid that looks mottled with both dark and light areas throughout. This is a typical finding in people with autoimmune thyroid disease such as hashimoto's thyroiditis or grave's disease. It sounds like there is nothing suspicious that would require biopsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had an ultrasound of my thyroid that states thyroid has multiple subcentimeter nodules but is homogeneous in echotexture with no mass, nodule, or other abnormality, Hypoechoic nodule at the lower pole on right 3x3x3mm, cystic nodule in the interpol?
See Specialist: I would take the results and follow up with Endocrinology or a Ear Nose and Throat specialist Should also have complete Thyroid labs done. Need more information about your medical history, meds, and other family history you have. Continue to follow up and you will get your situation resolved and need not worry. ...Read more
