Hyperechoic Thyroid Nodule
Presence of hypoechoic area in hyperechoic thyroid nodule.. What it indicates? Nodule has increased vascularity
Uncertain: There are various characteristics of thyroid nodules on ultrasound, including hyperechoic, hypoechoic, isoechoic, cystic, complex, vascular, calcified, microcalcifications. Unfortunately, none of them can tell you for sure whether the nodule is benign or malignant. In your age group, we would be recommending biopsy of the nodule if it is 1 cm in size or larger. ...Read more
3cm hyperechoic thyroid nodule with increased vascularity, normal TSH fnac- follicular cell with hyperplastic area. What it indicates?
Uncertain: The fna can only help if it shows cancer. But in your case it is ambiguous, so your doctor should guide you what to do next?...What did he/she suggest as the next step? Most doctors would next recommend either surgical excision or monitor closely for some time and see if it is growing in size in which case it has to be taken out. ...Read more

3 thyroid nodules sizing from .9-1.5 cm. mild diffuse hyperechoic & hetergenorous. 6 weeks post childbirth.
after childbirth. I'm scared.
FNAB: Hi. Hyperechoic is no guarantee. Your nodule(s) >10 mm need fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). Don't be scared...most are benign. But by the same token, don't ASSUME benignity! Satisfy yourself with cold, hard facts...cytology (and, hopefully, genetic testing, such as Afirma). Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have 3 thyroid nodules ranging from .7 - 1.5 CM but my lab was normal? What could this be the us showed 3 mild hyperechoic nodules & was diffused
Nodules, normal labs: Hi. The only nodules that definitely are NOT cancer are hyperthyroid nodules (TSH would be suppressed to some degree, so labs not normal). Most nodules are associated with normal thyroid labs; most of these are benign, but the thyroid cancers are also among this group. The standard is to needle biopsy nodules 10 mm or greater in diameter; so normal labs only mean the nodule SHOULD be biopsied. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have 3 thyroid nodules. Measuring .9-1.5. Thyroid bloodwork is normal. Hyperechoic hetergenous is what ultra sound shows. Help!! ?
Thyroid nodules: The vast majority of thyroid nodules are benign. Mutlinodular disease (goiter) is common. The larger the nodule the more worrisome they are. Ask your doctor how large a nodule must be before considering an FNA (fine needle aspiration). Most of these are handled by radiologists,endocrinologist as well as ENT's (ears, node & throat) specialists. Most likely benign but see your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In certain cases: Many thyroid nodules need to be surgically removed, while others will never require surgery. Each case is individualized and there are many gray areas. It is really difficult to give a meaningful response to that question in the absence of a history and physical examination. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends on problem: 3 major categories of potential health issues caused by thyroid nodules: a) large size affecting swallowing, breathing, voice ; b) over active production of thyroid hormone (hyperthyroid) ; and c) ~5% of nodules are cancer. Methimazole and ptu (propylthiouracil) are pills that block thyroid hormone production, treating b) above. Radioactive i-131 can shrink/destroy nodule, treating a) and b). Need surgery for c). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Complicated question: Most nodules are initially treated with a biopsy. Additional therapy, if any, will depend on the results of that biopsy and any other symptoms or signs associated with that nodule. In truth, the treatment for any thyroid nodule is very individualized and impossible to generalize further. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
