Heterogeneous Thyroid Nodule In Lower Pole
Is it poss. Cancer? Us results thyroid nodule: solid, heterogeneous & isoechoic nodule w/in the mid to lower right lobe, 4.2cm, increas. Vascularity
Yes it's possible: Any thyroid nodule over 4 cm needs to be removed surgically to make sure not cancerous per ata guidelines. I would still get a fna first before going to surgery but needs to be removed. More info on my website on thyroid nodules at www. Cvsurgicalgroup. Com.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
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.
Are heterogeneous complex thyroid nodules degenerating adenomas and have to be removed if peripherally vascular?
Hi, I recently found out I have 'multiple' thyroid nodules, it reads very heterogeneous w/prominent internal flow two of them measuring 1cm.
Multinodular goiter: This is fairly common and usually is quite benign. The imaging specialist can advise as to whether and need to be needled fr duagnosis.
Usually description: Of possible nodules in a gland with inflammation=thyroiditis needs follow up ultrasound 1 year and check and follow-up of thyroid function tests 1-2 x /year
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.
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
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
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?
Microscopic?: This report represents the gross pathologic findings but the microscopic. Microscopic results will define whether cells are benign or malignant. Usually the solid part of the nodule has the answer. Need further information.
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 careiSee 1 more doctor answer
I had an ultrasound scan: The thyroid gland is severly and diffusely heterogeneous. Moderate hypervascularity. No focal or measurable thyroid nodule.
Thyroid: Your ultrasound report looks fine. See an Endocrinologist if you have hyperthyroidism!
Nodule on thyroid. Then did a FNA. The result was 1.7cm "Left thyroid nodule is heterogeneous & mildly hypoechoic. Any reason to worry?
What did FNA show?: The description you give is of the ultrasound, not the fine-needle aspiration. Yes, I'm worried. But you do need to find out what the FNA showed. If there's any reason to think this is cancer, address it without delay. Best wishes.
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.
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.
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.
