Hyperechoic Thyroid Nodule
Nodules- thyroid us:Superior hypoechoic vascular nodule 7x6x5 mm.Mid lobe hypoechoic nodule 3x4x2 mm. Sup vascular nodule measuring 10x8x5. Worries?
thyroid u/s showed mildly heterogeneous echotexture of thyroid glan mild cervical lymphadenopathy small hypoechoic nodule rep parathyroid adenoma ?
Thyroid ultrasound1.4x1.1x1.1cm rim calcified nodule left mid thyroid.Well circumscribe hypoechoic1.4x1.9x1cm nodule w/mild internal flow.Is it cancer?
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
Thyroid u/s: 3x2x3mm cystic nodule, ill-defined 1.6x0.8x1.0cm hypoechoic nodule r lobe; 6x3x6mm solid, slightly hypoechoic nodule l lobe- next step?
Followup exam: By age 60, about one-half of all people have a thyroid nodule, found either through examination or with imaging. Over 90% of such nodules are benign. Hypoechoic noodules are usually cysts. A complex nodule over one cm. With blood flow should be biopsied. This can be performed by neeedle or core bx. Most nodules are asymptomatic. Follow up us examination in six months suggested. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thyroid US- heterogenous thyroid parenchyma with hypervascularity, suggestive of underlying parenchymal disease, no discrete thyroid nodule. Meaning?
Thyroiditis?: Need correlation with thyroid function tests. Why did you have the ultrasound? Your doctor is the one to put this all together for you. ...Read more
Norm. tsh, pth 103, tpo ab 839, calcium 383, abnormal thyroid/para-heterogeneous parenchymal echotexture-thyroid,no nodule,ill defined hypoecoic lesion posterior to rt thyroid lobe,ill def para nodule?
Clarify: Hi. Your PTH is high and MEN-1 in the family. That calcium makes no sense unless it's a 24-hour urine calcium, in which case it's high. What's your serum calcium? Your thyroid autoantibodies are high, and your thyroid function is normal. MEN-1 is not assoc. with autoimmune thyroid disease, so that looks like maybe an unrelated finding. Most MEN-1 patients get primary hyperparathyroidism before 57 ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thyroid sono showed heterogeneous gland with multinodular goiter(positive hashimoto's diagnosis;on synthroid)-follow up sono when?
3 thyroid nodules, hypoechoic solid nodule with few tiny calcified 1st FNA is benign follicular lesion and 2nd is benign follicular nodule,possible?
Thyroid follicles: Most likely, the ultrasound is picking up benign follicular cysts, or areas of "colloid" (where thyroid hormone is made) arranged in a circular pattern or nodule. From the description (& the 2 FNA biopsies) it's unlikely to be cancer. In certain parts of the world (40% of it), iodine deficiency is common & thyroid nodules are prominent. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/thyroid-nodules ...Read more
Thyroid nodule of the right lobe. Fna indicated follicular lesion-also hypothyroid, family history of malignant thyroid nodules. Options?
Surgery or...: A repeat biopsy combined with an afirma assay test may give you somewhat better guidance, but with your history and risk factors, surgery may be the best option. By the way, why are you taking generic T4 an Armour Thyroid together? There is no way to monitor the dosage properly as the lab tests will be unreliable. Brand name T4 is better, safer and more reliable. ...Read more
Watch/retest: Unless you have a thyroid cancer history, the nodule is suspicious on ultrasound or other factors are in play -- check serum thyroglobulin and thyroid function. Repeat doctor's exam an ultrasound in a year. Generally of very low significance and found in over 50% of the population. ...Read more
Heterogeneous thyroid, my ultrasound stated that diffusely heterogeneous thyroid with no discrete cystic or solid nodule identified.
May be autoimmune: Heterogeneous thyroid on ultrasound refers to a thyroid that looks mottled with both dark and light areas throughout. This is a typical finding in people with autoimmune thyroid disease such as hashimoto's thyroiditis or grave's disease. It sounds like there is nothing suspicious that would require biopsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thyroid sono results:"heterogeneous gland suggesting multinodular goiter -no discrete dominant masses observed"-what does this mean?
Lumpy!: Opinions vary, but... Especially for women, thyroid nodules are very common. These are sometimes familial or inherited and are sometimes more common later in life. There is little to worry about, especially without a specific "dominant" nodule over ~1cm. You should get thyroid blood work and a followup ultrasound within a few months. If the gland is huge, you may need treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
