Homogeneous Echotexture Of Thyroid
Irregularity: It means your thyroid gland is not uniform like a normal gland should be. There may be some irregularity that the ultrasound is showing...Perhaps some small cysts.....It is nothing serious but it should be rechecked with a repea ultrasound test perhaps after an interval of one year. ...Read more
It means: that the appearance of the thyroid tissue on US is not uniform, it is heterogeneous(vs. homogeneous). This is a very non specific sign that could indicate a generalized thyroid process/abnormality(vs. a focal mass). This could include thyroiditis, autoimmune disorders, the effects of certain meds, hypo or hyper thyroidism, or other etiologies. Talk to your doc about the results. ...Read more
Could be: It is difficult to reliably sonographically differentiate hashimoto thyroiditis from other thyroid pathology. Ultrasound features can be variable depending of the severity and phase of disease. A diffusely enlarged thyroid gland with a heterogeneous echotexture is a common sonographic presentation. ...Read more
What is a small thyroid gland and of diffusely heterogeneous echotexture with a multiobulated contour?
Bilateral thyroid lobes are enlarged and show diffuse heterogeneous echotexture with increased vascularity. What does that mean?
Thyroid: What have your doctors said about this. There are many options that include surgery or doing nothing. You can rely on your doctors for your management. If your thyroid levels are OK and your thyroid gland is not very enlarged it would be OK to have nothing done aside from regular examination. ...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

Can you explain this statement?: The thyroid gland demonstrates heterogenous echotexture without a discrete mass or
Thyroid ultrasound: Your thyroid ultrasound was ordered by your doctor to evaluate an abnormal thyroid gland. Generally, we are looking for nodules or masses of concern. Happily no masses were seen. Heterogeneity is the characteristic of your gland showing variations in water content which would be expected findings in glands that are swollen or inflamed. ...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 ›
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
I have done USGthyroid.normal thyroid and isthumus show diffusely altered heterogeneous echotexture. Vascularity present.no lesion nor calcification.
Thyroid function?: Hi. What prompted the thyroid ultrasound? Sounds like no nodule, so thyroid cancer is not the issue here. Heterogeneous echo texture is non-specific, but certainly can be seen in Hashimoto's. Do you have normal thyroid function? Even if so, you could check TPO & thyroglobulin antibodies to see if there's evidence of autoimmune thyroiditis. Good luck! ...Read more
