My 12 yo's thyroid sono came back w/3 nodule- each >1cm: 1)slightly hypoechoic heterogeneous, 2)heterogeneously isoechoic w/internal vascularity 3) hetergenously hypoechoic w/in gland. How bad is it?
Nodules- thyroid us:Superior hypoechoic vascular nodule 7x6x5 mm.Mid lobe hypoechoic nodule 3x4x2 mm. Sup vascular nodule measuring 10x8x5. Worries?
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
Fna, 2 nodules left lobe. Abundant benign appearing epithelial cells, hemosiderin-laden macrophages& colloid present. Scattered microfollicles noted. Path says can't entirely rule out fillocular lesio?
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
Abundant benign appearing follicular epithelial cells, hemosidering-laden macrophages &colloid present. & scattered micro follicles noted. Favor adenomatoid nodule. What is adenomatoid nodule?
Uterus measures 8.1 x 3.2 x 5.3 CM myometrium appears heterogeneous, 2 tiny echogenic foci seen anterior to endometrium. What's this mean?
Probable fibroids: This probably means that you have small fibroids. These are the most common tumors of the female reproductive tract and almost never are or become cancerous. You only worry about them when they cause symptoms. Adenomyosis (internal endometriosis) can cause heterogenaity but does not usually show up on ultrasound. ...Read more
32*27 mm thick walled cyst in left ovary with multiple thin septae
inseprable adjacent 40*14 mm homogenous hyperechoic lesion inseprable
is it cancer?
Pathology: The only way to know for sure is to remove the cyst and submit it to a pathologist for examination. ...Read more
Ultrasound shows elongated nodule measuring 3.4 cm. Long predominantly hypoechoic well circumscribed with no posterior shadowing. ?
What: part of the body was scanned? Please post the question again with some additional info. Ultrasounds are performed on nearly every part of the body, so there is no way to respond to the question without knowing what specifically was scanned. Was it the breast? ...Read more
Scan shows 2.1 CM nodule on thyroid
Hypervascular on color Doppler slight heterogenous echotexture / incomplete pseudocapsule RLLProb cancer or no?
US of thyroid diffusely heterogeneous with multiple sub-centimeter nodules, 6mm isthmus, index nodules mixed echo-texture, what does this mean?
12mm slightly complex THYROID nodule (R) + 10x6x5mm hypoechoic nodule (R). Impression: largest predominantly solid appearing nodule is 10mm. GET FNA?
What does "heterogenously echogenic lesion within left ovary" mean? Also says "mild heterogeneous posterior acoustic shadowing".
Indeterminate lesion: By far the most common cystic ovarian lesions are benign functional ovarian cysts. When a lesion doesn't follow a definitely benign imaging characteristics (heterogenous or shadowing) on ultrasound, it requires either follow up to resolution and/or further evaluation including MRI in some instances. Without seeing the images, we can only make guess. Hope this helps. ...Read more
