Diminutive Left Lobe Of Thyroid
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
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
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
Thyroid: right lobe 5x1.7x1.3cm isthmus 0.41cm left lobe 4.2x1.6x1.4cm hypoechoic nodule in right lobe 0.2x0.2x0.4cm. Normal vascularity. Cancerous?
Very unlikely: to be cancerous. May require ultrasound follow up to assess for serial changes. ...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 antibodies blood- 10 000
Thyroid ultrasound- right and left lobe gland slightly coarse in echo texture.few tiny colloid cysts bilateral. Right lobe 18x14x40mm. Left lobe 16x15x53mm.
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
Prominent vessels in lobe of thyroid, nodule on other lobe, hypothyroid, inconclusive fna of nodule?
Yes: Any measurement greater than 5 cm generally considered enlarged. ...Read more
Subcentimeter complex cystic focus within or immediately adjacent to inferior posterior aspect of left thyroid lobe. Could be parathyroid gland? 8mm
Have a 5mm groundglass infiltrate right upper lobe, also a 1.6cm low density nodule on left adrenal gland and left adrenal gland is thickened?
What do you want?: Doctors have to add up ur history,exam,medical problems,your social habits like drinking,smoking and your family history to come to a conclusion.We are not Gods to see just a CT scan result and give you a diagnosis.Please provide above details if you need more insight into what these lesions could be.....Hope you don't misunderstand me... ...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
Hetrogenous thyriod nodule without evidence of discrete thyroid nodule it right lobe measures 5.7x1.4x1.7 while left lobe 5.4x1.4x1.7?
Hashimoto's disease?: A very common thyroid condition, known as hashimoto or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis -- is when the body's immune system attacks the thyroid gland. This can cause an enlarged inefficient thyroid gland (large size of ultrasound measurements) and scarred heterogeneous appearance (in ultrasound description). Eventually many patients will become hypothyroid. Thyroid antibody levels are usually high. ...Read more
A 0.3 x 0.5 x 0.3 CM hypoechoic cystic nodule with punctate internal echo is noted in the lower pole of the right lobe of the thyroid
Small nodule: Often cystic thyroid nodules can have denser regions called "punctate foci". If the nodule is not cystic those can also be microcalcifications, a finding that increases the risk of thyroid cancer. The key though is that the nodule is very small and therefore requires monitoring only, no matter what its nature may be. ...Read more
RAI for graves 30 yrs ago. now US findings: calcified focus in region of left lobe occupying much of the remaining left lobe & is densely calcified?
Good sign.: Complete calcification following RAI means that there is no more active thyroid tissue in the treated area. If the remain heathy tissue keeps your thyroid hormone levels normal (or if you're getting enough replacement hormone), you should be fine. Of course, I'm assuming the pathology report didn't show any signs of thyroid cancer. If you have any further concerns, discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more
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
Calcification of a lesion in the left parietal lobe along the falx no symptoms except occasional focal fit?
Probably from pork: Cysticercosis is an infection by the pork tapeworm (Taenia solium). Infected people may have no symptoms for years, then if a cyst of the tapeworm forms in the brain, it is one of the most common causes of seizures. In some parts of the world up to 1/4 of the people have cysticercosis. Avoid eating pork to prevent more cysts from forming in your body. The best diet for humans is eating plants. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
