Heterogeneous Solid Nodule Mass In Thyroid
What does this mean solid heterogeneous well circumscribed nodule within the right lobe of the thyroid.?
Appearance of nodule: Unfortuantely, one cannot clearly determine the cause by the appearance: Solid= not fluid filled like a cyst. Heterogeneous: not uniform in texture. Well circumscribed: sharp margins and not growing into the thyroid tissue. Depending on whether there are multiple or only a single nodule and the size, a biopsy may be recommended to determine the cause, benign or otherwise. ...Read more
What does it mean when a thyroid has a solid complex and solid mass? I was told I had small nodules on the left side of my thryoid. On the right side, there is a large complex mass and liquid nodule. What does mean?
Can a mass on the thyroid be spread to the right lobe? Because I found out that there is a solid nodule on the right lobe of the thyroid
It can: As there are types of cancer that can readily spread locally even in the thyroid. Realize it's also possible to multiple thyroid nodule on both sides without any cancer too. It sounds like you need to review this with your doctor and possibly have a thyroid ultrasound completed to visualize the area. ...Read more
Heterogeneous thyroid, my ultrasound stated that diffusely heterogeneous thyroid with no discrete cystic or solid nodule identified.
May be autoimmune: Heterogeneous thyroid on ultrasound refers to a thyroid that looks mottled with both dark and light areas throughout. This is a typical finding in people with autoimmune thyroid disease such as hashimoto's thyroiditis or grave's disease. It sounds like there is nothing suspicious that would require biopsy. ...Read more
I have a 2.4 heterogeneous hypoechoic solid nodule with cystic components and no increased vascularity or internalcalcification on thyroid. Is it bad?
If a solid heterogeneous nodule on the thyroid is benign and not causing TSH levels to change but is growing rapidly, what is it?
Heterogeneous appearance thyroid gland with complex solid & cystic nodule posterior margin upper pole right lobe 1.5x1.4x1.0cm, what does this mean?
Possible biopsy: Many people have thyroid issues and have ultrasounds that can show a multitude of issues. Most findings are benign and typically are cysts. Biopsies are done routinely for solid nodules to make sure they are benign or not. You may require some thyroid replacement but thyroid blood tests are also required. She your primary or an endocrinologist since they specialize in thyroid issues. Good luck ...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

Thyroid ultrasound says I had a 12 mmx6 mmx5mm peripherally vascular nodule in my left lobe that was heterogeneous. Partly solid/cystic. Cancer?
Endocrine surgeon: Best to see an endocrine surgeon who will do fine needle aspiration under ultrasound and the start the work up by seeing what the FNA results show. Make sure you follow up with this quickly. ...Read more
Is it poss. Cancer? Us results thyroid nodule: solid, heterogeneous & isoechoic nodule w/in the mid to lower right lobe, 4.2cm, increas. Vascularity
Had thyroid us. I felt a constant lump in throat. Have "complex hypoechoic nodule (solid mass) 3.9x1.5x1.1cm (l) & 4.5x1.5x1.4cm (r)." can it be cancer?
Possible: Nodules that size although most often not cancer need to be evaluated further. Bilateral or multiple nodules are more likely to be benign. Next step should be fine needle biopsies (fna). This is just what it sounds like- a small needle placed into the nodule to obtain some cells for pathology. If benign, can leave alone. But if having symptoms simply from size of nodule might still need surgery. ...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
What is the treatment for a well defined heterogenous psychoechoic slightly solid thyroid nodule?
Monitor: Depends on the size of the nodule, you might need a biopsy to make sure it is benign. At the very least, you need to follow the nodule with another ultrasound in a year to make sure it is not growing or significantly changing. The only curative treatment is surgery which is the decision between you and your physician. ...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
Solid nodules on both lobes of thyroid and 9mm isthmus. 2.0 cm taller than wide, hypoechoic, heterogenous, calcifications nodule. Possible cancer?
Possibly: Get a fine needle aspiration biopsyGet a more detailed answer ›
Pls help with thyroid ultrasound report? Solid ovoid heterogeneous nodules in left & right lobe. Sizes: 5.0x1.5x1.9 cm, 8x4x7 mm, 6x4x5 mm -lesion.
Biopsy: In the event of a solitary thyroid nodule that is larger than 0.5 to 1 cm, or in the case of multiple thyroid nodules in which there is a dominant nodule, an ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy is warranted. Multiple nodules is most commonly associated with benign goiter, the nodules you describe warrant a fine needle biopsy for specific diagnosis and treatment recommendations. ...Read more
I had a sonogram of my thyroid. I have 9 nodules/cyst. 2 solid hypoechoic heterogeneous nodules. What does this mean? Cancer?
Common problem: Nodules of the thyroid are common, especially in women. Most thyroid nodules are benign. "solid", "hypoechoic", "heterogeneous" nodules are the most common ones seen. If they are large enough (at least 1 cm), we typically recommend doing a fine needle biopsy to make sure they are benign. ...Read more
Ultrasound shows that I have large solid nodules in right and left thyroid lobes. Hypoechoic and heterogenous. Isthmus measures 7mm, is it malignant?
Thyroid nodules: Can't say for sure, but in a multinodular gland, unless one particular nodule is "dominant" or stands out because of suspicious features, they are presumed benign. Sometimes a nuclear medicine thyroid scan will identify a particular nodule to biopsy if it is "cold" on the scan ...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

What to do if I have 5 solid thyroid nodules more than a year ago, what happens if I left them untreated?
Thyroid glands are diffusely heterogeneous with generalized increased vasculanity? There are no distinct nodules.
Ask your DR if u: Have grave's disease or hashimoto's thyroiditis. I won't worry much. Meds will be adjusted based on your TSH & symptoms. Best wishes! ...Read more
I got thyroid results today and it was " Diffusely heterogeneous thyroid gland without discrete dominant nodules." what does that mean?
Heterogeneity: Heterogeneous means the size is irregular in terms of thickness throughout. Homogenous is the opposite and would mean the gland is uniform in size. Nodules are important to find because they can be functional or "hot" nodules that secrete too much thyroid hormone. Nonspecific heterogeneity may be thyroiditis or Graves Disease. See Endocrinology for follow up. ...Read more
