Complex cystic hypoechoic nodules right parotid gland with internal vascular septations  &calcifications Echogenic foci Biopsy in future. Inconclusive?

Parotid mass: Your doctor will probably want an FNA, fine needle aspiration to obtain cells that can be examined by a pathologist. Probably will be benign but your ENT may suggest it be completely excised. ...Read more

Well circumscribed hypoechoic 4.8 cm cystic mass. Thickened internal septations, perifpheral mural nodularity and calcification. Pain upper abdomen.

Well circumscribed hypoechoic 4.8 cm cystic mass.  Thickened internal septations, perifpheral mural nodularity and calcification. Pain upper abdomen.

Ovarian: I assume the report is describing an ovarian cyst which may be fluid filled. If so, your gynecologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. It is not clear if this is the cause of your abdominal discomfort since the discomfort is not in the pelvic area. Other imaging studies may be recommended. ...Read more

Ovoid subcutaneous hypoechoic focal lesion size1.6x0.9 echogenic central hilum. Minimally enlarged reactive node in neck.ultra sound 2012. Concern??

Lymph nodes: are normal structures. If they are mildly enlarged, it is usually due to benign causes. If it has been stable since 2012, in all likelihood it is of no concern. ...Read more

Thyroid ultrasound shows new mural nodule, calcifications, masses, lesions, and lymphadenopathy. Possible cancer?

Possible cancer: With your description cancer is a possibility but by no means certain. Where is the lymphadenopathy? An imaging study with biopsy is what is needed here. Please have your doctor schedule this. Hope all goes well. ...Read more

What do thyroid US results mean? Homogeneous echogenicity. Multiple nodules bilaterally, no cysts ID'd. Heterogeneous parenchyma w/bilateral nodules.

Thyroid nodules: Did they measure the largest nodules? Thyroid nodules are fairly common, and the vast majority of them are not cancerous, but if one is above 1 cm, a biopsy may be considered (there's some variation in how thyroid nodules are managed). Some can give you hyperthyroidism. I'd speak with your doctor or an endocrinologist about further steps. ...Read more

Are isoechoic and hypoecoic nodules and cysts cancerous?

Are isoechoic and hypoecoic nodules and cysts cancerous?

Are you referring: to breast ultrasound? Simple cysts are benign, cysts with solid components are more suspicious. Isoechoic and hypoechoic masses can be benign or malignant. The probability of malignancy depends on other ultrasound features. Some need biopsy, some can be followed or ignored. ...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 more

1.5x0.6x1.1.1cm ill defined heterogeneous hypoechoic area w/internal vascularity no calcification found on heterogeneous right thyroid lobe. Explain?

1.5x0.6x1.1.1cm ill defined heterogeneous hypoechoic area w/internal vascularity no calcification found on heterogeneous right thyroid lobe. Explain?

Thyroid nodule: You need to see your endocrinologist for interpretation of this. A 1.5 cm thyroid nodule probably should be biopsied, although the likeihood of this being cancer is low (probably less than 10%). A nodule among a multinodular gland is less of a concern, as is a nodule in a hashimotos gland. All this needs to be examined. ...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

Thyroid US shows 1cm nodule, heterogeeous, hypoechoic, irregular borders.  Could this be malignant?

Could be, but ...: Usually the bad ones are larger and solid. The definitive test is always a biopsy. An U/S finding is just suggestive or not. Discuss the results with your doc and the ultrasonographer. Good luck and best wishes! ...Read more

2 times of FNA are benign follicular nodule but US finding irregular hypoechoic solid nodule with internal flecks of calcifications, possible?

2 times of FNA are benign follicular nodule but US finding irregular hypoechoic solid nodule with internal flecks of calcifications, possible?

Thyroid nodule: Solid nodules that appear dark or hypoechoic on ultrasound and have small calcifications are more likely to be cancerous. Fluid filled nodules (>2cm for FNA) without these features could be benign. Correlation with the US data is necessary to be certain that the lesion was adequately sampled by FNA. ...Read more

US shows 1 cm rounded hypoechoic mass w/ internal echoes, debris filled cyst or solid.  CT says either a solid enhanicing or complicated cystic. Cance?

Can be either: A 1 cm. or less than 1/2 inch is rarely identified as a malignant lesion. On US too difficult to define the origin of the hypoechoic signal. One questions the symptoms that might have let the lesion be defined and where is this nodule . Is it superficial, in the abdominal cavity, palpated on neck exam or where else was the lesion defined. If there is suspicion of malignancy then bx. ...Read more
