Do Hot Thyroid Nodules Show Up Darker On Ultrasound
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Thyroid nodule at 3.4 x 4.7 x 2.3cm. Blood tests confirm all is normal. Ultrasound shows heterogeneous iso/small area hypechoic. Chances of cancer?
Hashimito's plus thyroid nodule. FNA benign 1 year ago. repeat ultrasound shows thickened isthmus from what was 4 MM to 6MM. is this same as goiter?
Possibly: Hashimoto's thyroiditis is chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis based on autoimmunity. On gross examination, there is often a hard goitre, not painful . Goiter is an abnormal swelling of thyroid resulting in a lump in the neck. It arises from many causes, including under- or overactive thyroid, iodine deficiency and, rarely, thyroid cancer If nodule enlarges and is cold may need bx again ...Read more
3cm hypoechoic solid vascular thyroid nodule with a cluster of hurthle cells, fna benign, follow up ultrasound now shows microcalcifications. Cancer?
Not necessarily...: The fact that FNA was reported as benign, the nodule is unlikely to be malignant. Small droplets of benign colloid often mimic "microcalcificatins" of papillary tumor, hence caution is advised. I would suggest repeating the FNA, and consider also collecting samples for gene profiling studies, such as, those manufactured by Veracyte and Asuragen (Note:I have no financial/other interest.) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have 3 thyroid nodules. Measuring .9-1.5. Thyroid bloodwork is normal. Hyperechoic hetergenous is what ultra sound shows. Help!! ?
Thyroid nodules: The vast majority of thyroid nodules are benign. Mutlinodular disease (goiter) is common. The larger the nodule the more worrisome they are. Ask your doctor how large a nodule must be before considering an FNA (fine needle aspiration). Most of these are handled by radiologists,endocrinologist as well as ENT's (ears, node & throat) specialists. Most likely benign but see your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Less than 1cm hypoechoic thyroid nodule disappeared one month later.Dr said 1st ultrasound wasn't overread. How'd it disappear?
Thyroid nodule: Thyroid cysts can certainly come/go. The quality of ultrasounds, the interpretation, and the definition of a "nodule" can vary. Hashimoto's can cause a patchy pattern that can look like a nodule. Certainly a small nodule that is so transient is not something to worry about. An endocrinologist should be able to interpret things. ...Read more
How often do I need to schedule an Ultrasound for my Thyroid nodule? Each year? So far I've had two over two years, and it was small and benign
Yearly is sufficient: Yearly is sufficient. If the lesion remains stable in size, three years in a row, you may reduce the frequency in consultation with your doctor. ...Read more
