What could 3 heterigeneous hyperechoic nodules in left lobe of thyroid be. Measurements are. 9, 1.5, and 1.0.?
Individualized: There are many different homeopathic remedies that could help a thyroid cyst, but only one of them is likely to help- the choice is based not just on the cyst but on everything else about you as well (homeopaths are more interested in what type of person has a disease than what disease a person has). I advise consulting a good homeopath to determine which remedy is the best fit. ...Read more
Please explain "left lobe of thyroid is 4.6x1.9x1.5cm & contains 9mm hypoechoic nodule at lower pole w/ small cystic component" mildly complicated. TY?
I've had my left lobe of thyroid removed d/t thyroid ca. What would the thyroglobulin teat be used to monitor?
Monitor recurrence: The thyroglobulin test is used as a tumor marker to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment for thyroid cancer and to monitor for recurrence. Not every thyroid cancer will produce thyroglobulin, but the most common types, the well-differentiated papillary and follicular thyroid cancers, frequently do, so increased levels of thyroglobulin can help guide management post treatment for thyroid cancer. ...Read more
What would cause a 4mm hypoechoic nodule in left lobe of thyroid gland, along with prominent bilateral cervical lymph nodes as found in a neck US?
Thyroid cyst: It sounds like you have a simple thyroid cyst and possiblt a couple of reactive nodes that may be within normal. Why did you have an ultrasound? 4mm cysts is not palpable. I would recommend regular 6-12 month follow up. It is low risk for neoplastic pathology based on your description. ...Read more
My thyroid u/s show mild cervical lymphadenopathy small nodule inferior posterior left lobe of thyroid Additional parathyroid adenoma/lymphadenopathy?
Specialists: These findings are best evaluated by a Thyroidologist/endocrinologist collaborating with a skilled head and neck surgeon. More than likely a needle biopsy of the thyroid nodule and possibly a ct scan of the neck will be recommended. The radiologist will thoroughly review these images with the specialists. ...Read more
Thyroid sono results: right lobe 3.6x1.35x1.4cm, left lobe 3.0x1.2x1.2cm. Isthmus is 3mm....Normal?
Yes: Those measurements are slightly small overall but if thyroid function is normal, it is normal for you. ...Read more
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
Nodules: Hi. No, not from how you describe it. We fine needle biopsy nodules to see if they're cancer. Diffuse heterogeneity in the gland is often seen in Hashimoto's (which can be diagnosed with thyroid autoantibodies; needle biopsy not indicated. Talk with your doctor. He/she will recommend next step (s). Good luck! ...Read more
Are these dimensions normal thyroid size? Right thyroid lobe: sagittal 59mm x trans. 16mm x ap 13 mm; left thyroid love: 49mm x 13mm x 12mm
Hard to say: There are no consistent standards for the size of a normal thyroid on ultrasound, as there is a lot of variation in how one measures the size. Nevertheless the length of your thyroid is somewhat larger than most people. The volume is more important, but this is hard to estimate from simple dimensions. Overall size is not important, function is (tsh, free t4). ...Read more
FMy right thyroid lobe measures 5.7 x 3.1 x 3.6 and the left thyroid lobe measures 6.0 x 2.8 x 2.8 CM in dimensions. The thyroid isthmus measures 0.8 c?
Normal: Hi. Yep, sounds pretty darn normal. Was there a question associated with that, or are you just proud of your thyroid??? ...Read more
Us shows large complex cystic right thyroid lesion. 2.8x1.9x1.8cm with layering debris, left lobe heterogeneous. What's the next step?
Thyroid biopsy: Most nodules of the thyroid are benign. However, one should consider biopsy of any nodule that is larger than 1 cm in size. Even though your nodule may be mostly fluid (cystic) containing, it would be advised to do a fine needle biopsy. This is a simple outpatient procedure. ...Read more
I have a mass on the right lobe of my thyroid that I am getting removed. There are small cysts on the left lobe, should total removal be considered?
Should I be concerned if on a scan they found a left thyroid lobe to be asymmetrically enlarged when I have had a ultra sound with in the last 6 monh?
There is not: Enough information. Was there an interval change between the two scans? How large is the size discrepancy? There can be some normal variability in size between the two lobes. ...Read more
My left thyroid lobe is slightly enlarged and I have a vascular hypoechoic nodule measuring 5x4x3mm?
Just follow it: This sounds like something you just watch and see if anything changes. Most often there maybe a new one over the year. Goiters are like that. Small nodular findings are common. Would not worry about it but don't forget about it. It is at this time something to remember it's there. Talk to your doctor ...Read more
I have heterogeneous thyroid with some mild echogenic small nodules in the left lobe what does this mean?
Size matters: Hi. Echogenic heterogeneity in the thyroid is commonly seen in autoimmune thyroid conditions, most often Hashimoto's. Small nodules (defined as ...Read more
Should a vague 3mm nodule in the inferior left lobe (heterogeneously in echotexture) of the thyroid be biopsied? Should I worry about this?
Both of my thyroid lobes demonstrate heterogeneous echotexture without focal nodule. Right lobe measures L: 3.37 cm, left lobe measures L: 3.33 cm?
Thyroid: A heterogeneous, normal sized thyroid may not mean much, or it could indicate one of a number of inflammatory/infiltrative processes i.e. thyroiditis. Sometimes symptoms may not be noticed. The thyroid US findings must be interpreted in conjunction with lab values/thyroid function tests, symptoms, and clinical findings to assess the significance, so best bet is to discuss with your doc. ...Read more
I had an us on my thyroid the test resulted a 2.8. X 1.8 X1.1 CM well circumscribed nodule on left lobe. It states consider short term f/u vs fna??
See surgeon: I would see a general surgeon who operates routinely on thyroid. It probably appears mostly benign to the radiologist which is why a short term repeat ultrasound is ok - to see if there are changes in the time interval. But getting a FNA (fine needle aspiration) may give a definite diagnosis more quickly. See what the surgeon recommends after he/she sees the ultrasound. ...Read more
Papillary cancer was found in the left lobe thyroid, but not in preliminary results so my right lobe left in w/2 nodules. What is the usual tx now?
Common scenario: This happens quite often. Most ENT's and oncologist would advise you now have your right thyroid lobe removed and examined by a pathologist to rule out papillary carcinoma in the right lobe. Best of luck. ...Read more
