Heterogeneous Thyroid With Hypoecotic Nodule
Thyroid US results: It is hard to interpret a thyroid ultrasound, especially online. Your profile says "hypothyroid and raised antibodies". This could mean Hashimotos, and the US is consistent with that. A 12 mm nodules is small, and could be consistent with the scarring in a Hashimotos gland, but this requires review by an Endocrinologist. ...Read more
Thyroid US repeated after 6mos. 2nd nodule on Rt. Now, labs are lowside normal. Left sideMildly heterogeneous. What does this mean?
US of thyroid diffusely heterogeneous with multiple sub-centimeter nodules, 6mm isthmus, index nodules mixed echo-texture, what does this mean?
Thyroid us after 3 mos: "previously noted ill-defined hypoechoic nodule now felt to represent an area of more focal heterogeneous thyroid tissue...?
Thyroid us: diffusely heterogeneous thyroid w/o well-defined dominant nodule, isthmus enlarged. Thyroid ab tests are neg, tg = 88.7 (<55). Diagnosis?
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 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
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
Hi, I recently found out I have 'multiple' thyroid nodules, it reads very heterogeneous w/prominent internal flow two of them measuring 1cm.
Heterogeneous hypoechoic nodules in bilateral thyroid lower pole, measuring 1.7 CM on the right and 0.5 CM on the left. Is it can be cancerous?
Have 4 nodules in thyroid, 2 benign, 2 hypervascular. One is mildly heterogeneous and 11x11x10 mm. Not seeing endo for months. Need action sooner?
See an ENT doctor: Either endo or ENT doctor can investigate your thyroid problem and the treatment will come from an ENT surgeon (head and neck surgeon is another alternative). Even a good internist can help you get checked and treated sooner. ...Read more
A 5x5x5mm nodule right upper thyroid no internal flow. Well circumscribed hypoechoic /heterogeneous 1.4x1.4x1.6cm nodule post right. Is the cancerous?
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 heterogeneous thyroid with some mild echogenic small nodules in the left lobe what does this mean?
Size matters: Hi. Echogenic heterogeneity in the thyroid is commonly seen in autoimmune thyroid conditions, most often Hashimoto's. Small nodules (defined as ...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
What is a lobulated heterogeneous hypoechoic nodule with scattered calfifications in the inferior right lobe of thyroid mean?
What is a lobulated heterogeneous hypoechoic nodule with scattered calicifications in the inferior right lobe of thyroid mean?
Thyroid Nodule: Thyroid nodules are very common. About 70% of the population has a nodule (many don't know it). About 5% of nodules are cancerous, which is why we care. Unless there were concerning characteristics on the ultrasound like microcalcifications, >1cm, taller than wide or increased blood flow or you have a family history or radiation exposure, typically we just follow-up with an annual ultrasound. ...Read more
Should a vague 3mm nodule in the inferior left lobe (heterogeneously in echotexture) of the thyroid be biopsied? Should I worry about this?
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
Recent US shows right side of thyroid a large nodule 3.9 x 2.1 x 2.3 cm. L Mid to lower left lobe shows a discrete hypoechoic heterogeneous nodule 2.
Thyroid nodule: If you were not seen by an endocrinologist, you should be referred to one for possible biopsy. You should also have a thyroid panel done. ...Read more
Are heterogeneous complex thyroid nodules degenerating adenomas and have to be removed if peripherally vascular?
Ultra sound should 3 nodules on thyroid ranging from. 9-1.5 CM hyperechoic & heterogeneous. Thyroid levels are good, lacking vitamin d tho? Help!
The ultrasound: Needs to be reviewed, lab studies need to be done and a thyroid biopsy is probably indicated. Check w/ your doctor. ...Read more
