Norm. Tsh, pth 103, tpo ab 839, calcium 383, abnormal thyroid/para-heterogeneous parenchymal echotexture-thyroid, no nodule, ill defined hypoecoic lesion posterior to rt thyroid lobe, ill def para nodule?
Hi. Your PTH is high and MEN-1 in the family. That calcium makes no sense unless it's a 24-hour urine calcium, in which case it's high. What's your serum calcium?
Your thyroid autoantibodies are high, and your thyroid function is normal. MEN-1 is not assoc. With autoimmune thyroid disease, so that looks like maybe an unrelated finding. Most MEN-1 patients get primary hyperparathyroidism before 57 ...Read more
What does abnormal heterogeneous echotexture throughout lobes of thyroid mean when you have nodules a ultersound showed this?
Hashimoti's: Thyroiditis, usuallyGet a more detailed answer ›
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
Scan shows 2.1 CM nodule on thyroid Hypervascular on color Doppler slight heterogenous echotexture / incomplete pseudocapsule RLLProb cancer or no?
Are heterogeneous complex thyroid nodules degenerating adenomas and have to be removed if peripherally vascular?
It depends: Thyroid nodules are mostly (80-90%) benign. But it depends on their size and rate of change (growth in their size). A repeat Ultrasound study of your Thyroid should be done (I am sure your doctor must have advised you to do so)) in 6 to 12 months time to reassess for any growth in the nodules in your Thyroid. ...Read more
Is a heterogeneously hypoechonic nodule 1.4x1.1x1.1cm thyroid nodule with microlobulated margins with no calcifications is a possible malignant one?
No definite answer.: There's no way to know from an ultrasound whether a thyroid nodule is malignant or benign. Don't be fooled by Radiologist - all imaging is limited in its ability to diagnose these conditions. The only way to tell for certain about malignancy is to undergo a biopsy. In the mean time, an iodine uptake-and-scan could help. You'll need blood tests & the help of an endocrinologist as well. Use HT Prime ...Read more
It means irregular: Heterogeneous is the opposite of homogenous. Any thyroid nodule which is irregular and over 1cm in size needs to be investigated further. This may need a biopsy especially if it is growing or has increased in size over a period of 3 months. You should have your doctor guide you or send you to an endocrinologist. For a second opinion and further advice. ...Read more
I have a 5mm hypoechoic heterogeneous thyroid nodule, but it's causing me pain. Should I have another ultrasound sooner than 3 months?
No: It is unlikely that a 5 mm module is causing pain. Currently recommended practice is to follow up annually for less than 1 cm (or 1.5 cm) nodules. More than that size biopsy. ...Read more
I just had fna done on 1 of 3 thyroid nodules and report say 3cm heterogeneous soild nodule w/small cystic components, what does this mean?
I have a tyroid nodule, 1.6 x. 9 x 3 cm. Heterogeneously attenuating predominantly cystic right thyroid nodule. What's it mean and could it be cancer?
Thyroid: Its highly unlikely to be cancer. The odds favor this being a thyroglossal duct cyst. Pts often present at you age. You don't say where exactly your mass is. TDC is usually near midline. Another possibility is a branchial cleft cyst which is also a congenital problem. Your docs may want to do a CT guided fine needle biopsy. Hang in there. I think you will be fine. ...Read more
I have several heterogeneous thyroid nodules and cysts with 7mm biggest in size. What does this indicate?
Common. Don't worry: Many people have nodules as they get older. Don't worry about them if they are less than 1cm in size. When and if they get bigger, then we biopsy the solid ones and aspirate the fluid with a needle. ...Read more
Does a homogeneous or heterogeneous solid thyroid nodule have more cancer risk? I see lots of info on heterogeneous but not on homogeneous.
Depend solid or cyst: Thyroid nodule either solis or cystic and that could be done by ultrasound next it has to be classified as cold or hot or warm and that could be done by thyroid scan if it is solid and cold have higher tendency to be malignant oat of thyroid nodules are benign if it is of some concern the doctor will perform fine needle aspiration to exclude malignancy you should be under doctor carei ...Read more
I had an ultrasound scan: The thyroid gland is severly and diffusely heterogeneous. Moderate hypervascularity. No focal or measurable thyroid nodule.
Nodule on thyroid. Then did a FNA. The result was 1.7cm "Left thyroid nodule is heterogeneous & mildly hypoechoic. Any reason to worry?
I have a heterogeneous hypoechoic thyroid nodule with solid components, internal vascularity and calcifications. Is there a chance this is cancer?
Yeah some: Wife had biopsy for this this week. Chance is low but that warrants a biopsy. ...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?
Hi I've had a fine needle biopsy on a 7mm thyroid nodule with heterogeneous echotexture, central calcification. Should I be concerned, please answer.
No: If there was no evidence of malignancy you should not be concerne. ...Read more
Solid heterogeneous thyroid nodule 15mm to 3cm in 2 years and normal TSH levels. If it is cancer, could it have spread over the 2 years? Fna tomorrow.
Will a surgeon remove thyroid nodules 3.0cm heterogeneous solid ifwith diffussly enlarged thyroid if fna comes back ok. I have hashimoto thyroiditis?
If the FNA: Is definitively "negative" not just inconclusive, many endocrinologists would just observe and follow-up at a later date w/repeat lab, exam and ultrasound. There are other factors as well, and best discussed with your endocrinologist. ...Read more
Severe hypo/hyper sx for the past month, can barely function. TSH, Free T4, T3 normal. Thyroid nodule FNA biopsy 2008 was ok. PET scan 2013 showed Hypermetabolic nodule. U/S showed mild heterogeneous thyroid. Can Hashimoto's be cause of my sx?
Maybe: You need a comprehensive evaluation, might not be your thyroid, kindly see your doctor again or seek a second opinion, good luck ...Read more
What is a innocuous and isoechoic thyroid nodule. Also what is a heterogenous nodule with tiny cystic spaces, it measures 0.7cm?
Hard to say: It's hard to say without seeing the actual images. An isoechoic nodule is typically nonspecific and potentially falls in the indeterminate range (ie need follow up or biopsy). Same thing for a heterogenous "nodule" with tiny cystic spaces. A "complex cyst" with tiny cystic spaces can be a sponge like cyst that is typically benign. ...Read more
