Thyroid labs in normal range,U/S showed several small cysts and mildly heterogeneous echotexture but been having many symptoms, runs in fam, c a endo?

What tests?

Thyroid
You may have normal TSH and free t 4 but still have anti thyroid antibodies. That would be called euthyroid hashimotos. So "normal" thyroid test doesn't tell whole story

What causes this finding on u/s "Thyroid demonstrating mild heterogeneous echotexture of the parenchyma" -- my Dr said it was "fine" .My tsh is normal?

Possibilities

It means your thyroid is not as smooth as it should be. This could be normal or indicates autoimmune thyroid disease. Since your TSH is normal then no hurry but on the next blood test ask your doc to also check your thyroid antibodies.

Follow up visit

After you have a radiologic procedure it is important to schedule follow up visit with the doctor who ordered it who can interpret the result in the context of your clinical situation. The ovarian volumes you mention are normal The myometrial description may refer to adenomyosis or a number of of things

No worries

Not completely normal since there were some cysts but they are very small and don't require any intervention at this time. Thyroid function is normal. Look at it again in a few years to track changes.
