1/2/13 MRI - Myomatous Degeneration in uterus.1/15/13 Ultrasound Normal. 4/25/14 US Showed Uterus enlarged, Heterogeneous texture 128X40x80 no mass?
Fibroids - benign : Myomatous uterus is another term for fibroids which are very common benign growths. MRI is an excellent way for detecting them and the difference in US reports probably reflects difference in technique rather than something that is new. Key ? Is whether symptoms such as increased bleeding, frequent urination, constipation, or pressure are present. If so, see OB/Gyn as a number of treatments exist. ...Read more
1.5x0.6x1.1.1cm ill defined heterogeneous hypoechoic area w/internal vascularity no calcification found on heterogeneous right thyroid lobe. Explain?
Thyroid nodule: You need to see your endocrinologist for interpretation of this. A 1.5 cm thyroid nodule probably should be biopsied, although the likeihood of this being cancer is low (probably less than 10%). A nodule among a multinodular gland is less of a concern, as is a nodule in a hashimotos gland. All this needs to be examined. ...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

My ultrasound state s heterogenous uterus consider diffuse myomitosis /adenomyosis. With mderate thickening endometrium 1.5cm is this cancerous?
Easy To Find Out: Adenomyosis (endometriosis interna) is simply endometrial glands that are in the muscle layer of the uterus. It can cause heavier, irreg bleeding & more painful menses (menometrorrhagia & dysmenorrhea). Your us may simply be reflecting this finding. However, abnormal bleeding can also signify endometrial hyperplasia (pre-cancerous) or worse and at a minimum a biopsy (emb) is recommended. Take care. ...Read more
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Myomettrium is of a coarse echotexture consistent with diffuse fibrotic changes. An11 mm calcified posterior intramural fibroid noted. Please explain ?

They can infarct and become calcified and very rarely cause abnormal bleeding or trouble conceiving but most often they don't cause symptoms. They can be located in the subserosal, sub mucosal or myometrial location. ...Read more
