Hypoechoic Heterogeneous Thyroid Nodule
I have a 5mm hypoechoic heterogeneous thyroid nodule, but it's causing me pain. Should I have another ultrasound sooner than 3 months?
I have a heterogeneous hypoechoic thyroid nodule with solid components, internal vascularity and calcifications. Is there a chance this is cancer?
Thyroid nodule at 3.4 x 4.7 x 2.3cm. Blood tests confirm all is normal. Ultrasound shows heterogeneous iso/small area hypechoic. Chances of cancer?
Fewer echoes on US: Hypoechoic describes the appearance of a nodule on ultrasound (us). It refers to a nodule that reflects back fewer sound waves compared to the normal thyroid tissue around it. While most thyroid cancers are hypoechoic, most hypoechoic nodules are not cancers. But a hypoechoic nodule may have a slightly higher risk of being a cancer than other nodules. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends : It all depends on the size and if it is new. There is a need to do needle aspiration if not sure ...Read more
Are heterogeneous complex thyroid nodules degenerating adenomas and have to be removed if peripherally vascular?
Depends: Hypoechoic, hypervascular, or calcifications on ultrasound need to be addressed particularly if the nodule is > 10mm. The solid component of a complex nodule can be benign or cancer. Typically a nodule greater than 10mm should be biopsied by ultrasound or smaller if there are calcifications or prior history of radiation or family hist. There is no ultrasound pattern that is diagnostic for cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
