Thyroid ultrasound shows heterogenous hypervascular echogenicity. No nodules. Thyroid labs were normal. Any ideas on what this is?

Thyroid ultrasound shows heterogenous hypervascular echogenicity. No nodules. Thyroid labs were normal. Any ideas on what this is?

What thyoid labs?: There are many thyroid labs and most docs do not check enough of them? This ultrasound is consistent with grave's disease and thyroiditis. With grave's standard thyroid tests would usually be abnormal but might look ok with thyroiditis. Please make sure anti-thyroid antibodies (anti-tpo and anti-thyroglobulin) have been checked, as well as free t3 (liothyronine) and reverse t3 (liothyronine). ...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

Thyroid: Your endocrinologist will review your thyroid images and your thyroid laboratory data, but not until she/he takes your history, does a physical exam, and reviews your lab data. There are many treatment options from doing nothing to surgery on your thyroid. Thyroid issues are common but the success and control rate is quite high. You should be fine. ...Read more

Have thyroid nodule 20 yrs with many U/S and FNA but U/S now shows scattered echogenic foci-calcify with increased vascularity - what does this mean?

Have thyroid nodule 20 yrs with many U/S and FNA but U/S now shows scattered echogenic foci-calcify with increased vascularity - what does this mean?

Consistency: A lot depends on what has happened to this nodule over the last 20 yr. Any growth? Is the calcification new? The best scenario is where the US and FNA are all being done by the same person; sometimes the "reports" say different things when it is really not changed. Often the best person is an Endocrinologist who does this, rather than a radiologist who is not a thyroid specialist. ...Read more

My wife had a thyroid ultrasound and showed heterogenous echogenicity, hypervascular thyroid gland.No masses or nodules. Any thoughts on what this is?

My wife had a thyroid ultrasound and showed heterogenous echogenicity, hypervascular thyroid gland.No masses or nodules. Any thoughts on what this is?

Could be Hashimoto's: Is the gland normal is size or enlarged? If normal-sized, could be hashimoto's. If enlarged it could be grave's disease, both of which are autoimmune diseases. She should find out if she's hypo- or hyperthyroid and have additional testing to see if she has hashimoto's. ...Read more
