This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more

Subcentimeter hypodense nodule on left thyroid lobe with coarse focus of calcification---subcentimeter left thyroid nodule.Non-specific in nature.
Thyroid nodules: Most nodules less than 1 cm are not concerning and can be monitored with periodic ultrasounds. Some features such as calcification may heighten concern. Much more information is necessary in your situation. Is there family history of thyroid cancer, personal history of hyper or hypothyroidism, and radiation exposure? You need to discuss this with an endocrinologist and arrange a treatment plan. ...Read more

My wife had a thyroid ultrasound and showed heterogenous echogenicity, hypervascular thyroid gland.No masses or nodules. Any thoughts on what this is?
Could be Hashimoto's: Is the gland normal is size or enlarged? If normal-sized, could be hashimoto's. If enlarged it could be grave's disease, both of which are autoimmune diseases. She should find out if she's hypo- or hyperthyroid and have additional testing to see if she has hashimoto's. ...Read more
Hetrogenous thyriod nodule without evidence of discrete thyroid nodule it right lobe measures 5.7x1.4x1.7 while left lobe 5.4x1.4x1.7?
Hashimoto's disease?: A very common thyroid condition, known as hashimoto or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis -- is when the body's immune system attacks the thyroid gland. This can cause an enlarged inefficient thyroid gland (large size of ultrasound measurements) and scarred heterogeneous appearance (in ultrasound description). Eventually many patients will become hypothyroid. Thyroid antibody levels are usually high. ...Read more

Let's find out: This may be nothing but a colloid nodule in a developing nodular goiter. If the radiologist can't rule out cancer, you may be getting a fine-needle aspiration. With this pattern of calcification, it's unlikely to be an aggressive tumor even if it is cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Having a thyroid biopsy on complex nodule with very little internal flow, complex cyst nodule, and right isthmus appears thickened ireg borders, ?
Thyroid bx: I am not sure what your question is, but the most important factor is seeing a doctor who can evaluate all these findings. That is usually an Endocrinologist, whether or not (s)he does the biopsy. Thyroid nodules are common. Most are not cancer. If surgery becomes an option, find a surgeon who does thyroid surgery a a lot, not someone who does this only occasionally. ...Read more

Well circumscribed hypoechoic 4.8 cm cystic mass. Thickened internal septations, perifpheral mural nodularity and calcification. Pain upper abdomen.
Ovarian: I assume the report is describing an ovarian cyst which may be fluid filled. If so, your gynecologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. It is not clear if this is the cause of your abdominal discomfort since the discomfort is not in the pelvic area. Other imaging studies may be recommended. ...Read more
I have tsh(clia)6.32, normal t3, (liothyronine) t4, variable echotexture of liver with hyper and hypoechocic areas, fatty infiltration, right ovarian cyst can you help me?
Get checked soon,,: It would be a good idea to get examined and get some more lab tests like liver function tests to find out more about your issue. Your liver shows changes that may be serious, like cirrhosis, and your thyroid is only normal with a high tsh, and you've got an ovarian cyst. These may be separate issues or part of a syndrome but more information is needed so see your dr. And get checked. Good luck. ...Read more
It depends...: It depends. There are several causes of liver cysts, but in general if they are found incidentally on an ultrasound or ct scan and are "simple" cysts then there is nothing to be worried about. If they are "complex" cysts or solid then further evaluation may be indicated. If you have infectious symptoms or have been in an area where parasites are prevalent then amebiasis can occur in liver cysts. ...Read more

Benign findings : Gallbladder sludge can be seen with rapid weight loss, prolonged fasting, really sick patients with low/absent oral intake or use of tpn.Certain drugs (i.e. Ceftriaxone) can also cause it.The clinical course of sludge varies - often going away if the causative agent is eliminated. Asymptomatic patients require no therapy. If symptomatic or complications arise cholecystectomy may be indicated. ...Read more
Differences: A cyst is an abnormal sac of fluid. Most of the time we don't know what causes them(some are genetic), rarely some are parasite related. An abscess is collection of white blood cells(pus) that is infectious in nature. Most liver cysts can be left alone and never require drainage or surgical removal. Abscesses always require treatment which usually entails antibiotics and drainage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not likely: Liver cysts are very common (up to 7% of population have them). Usually these are discovered "incidentally" while looking for other problems. Simple liver cysts are almost always asymptomatic and would be very unlikely to cause fatigue. Continue to work with your doctor to find an explanation and possible solution to your fatigue. ...Read more
What's a gallbladder sludge and how is it treated? I've been diagnosed with a large sludge, and cyst in my liver.
Sand: I think of sludge at sand in the gallbladder. Not stones but a precursor to stones in the form of a sandy substance. If you have symptoms that could be related to the gallbladder, the gallbladder should be removed. Depending on the size, location, and symptoms, the cyst could also be treated surgically at the same time. ...Read more

Here are some...: Weight gain is very unlikely related with cysts in the liver, but more related with lifestyle and inherent general health. Noticing cysts in liver is usually an incidental finding while doing imaging studies for other reasons. To lose weight can be accomplished by following instructions in http://formefirst.com/Weightloss.html. ...Read more
2 reports 1 says 1.2 CM cyst right inferior liver other report says 12 mm in anterior segment of right lobe are these the same cyst/area?
Yes more than likely: 1.2 cm is 12 mm. The right lobe can be broken down into posterior (segments 6 and 7) and anterior (segments 5 and 8) sectors and inferior (segments 5 and 6) and superior (segments 7 and 8) sectors. So by the description of your scans, you have a liver cyst measuring 1.2 cm (about half an inch) in segment 6. Very common finding, usually without symptoms. Get ultrasound once a year. ...Read more
