Share

Nodule (Definition)

Any growth or deposit in the body or on its surface may be casually termed a nodule until its character is determined by the familiarity of the physician with it or by the results of a biopsy if it is not so obvious. The term is casual ...Read more

What does 2 centimeter hypoechoic/cystic nodules with internal echogenicity in the midpole of the left lobe. Larger module meaures 7mm?

It would be better: If you said where these findings were. It almost sounds like the thyroid. If so cysts in the thyroid may be colloid cysts and they look like cysts with internal echoes or old blood etc. Therefore please specify where you have these findings ...Read more

Heterogeneous hypoechoic nodules in bilateral thyroid lower pole, measuring 1.7 CM on the right and 0.5 CM on the left. Is it can be cancerous?

Not likely: Cancer is not likely but you should follow your doctor's advice for further evaluation, be that a thyroid scan or fine needle aspiration of the lesions. ...Read more

Please explain "left lobe of thyroid is 4.6x1.9x1.5cm & contains 9mm hypoechoic nodule at lower pole w/ small cystic component" mildly complicated. TY?

FNA not essential: As the nodule is less than 1 cm. FNA biopsy is not essential in most cases. But if any risk factors like history of radiation to head or neck or family history of thyroid cancer then need to follow up more closely by ultrasound and may also consider FNA biopsy ...Read more

My left thyroid lobe is slightly enlarged and I have a vascular hypoechoic nodule measuring 5x4x3mm?

My left thyroid lobe is slightly enlarged and I have a vascular hypoechoic nodule measuring 5x4x3mm?

Just follow it: This sounds like something you just watch and see if anything changes. Most often there maybe a new one over the year. Goiters are like that. Small nodular findings are common. Would not worry about it but don't forget about it. It is at this time something to remember it's there. Talk to your doctor ...Read more

Limited info: Nabothian cysts are not to worry about, ovarian cysts or nodules can range from unimportant to very worrisome. Since we cannot see your scan online and don't know your history, strongly recommend ask the doctor who ordered the scan. Good wishes. ...Read more

If I had a thyroid scan that read: left lobe of gland is mildly enlarged at 5.8cm x 1.7 x 2.2. There is a avascular 3 mm hypoechoic nodule in the lower pole of the left lobe. How would I know if it was " hot or cold"?

Ultrasound results: What you are describing are ultrasound results. A hypoechoic nodule of 3 mm of size is nearly 100% benign.

The only reason to assess if a nodule is overactive (hot) or underactive (cold) is in general hyperthyroidism. If the nodule is hot, then it can be the target of therapy. This is done through a i-131 uptake and scan. ...Read more

Are hypoechoic nodules in the liver cancerous (left lobe and right lobe, with peripheral and internal vascularity)? Doc said they are "abnormal".

Are hypoechoic nodules in the liver cancerous (left lobe and right lobe, with peripheral and internal vascularity)? Doc said they are "abnormal".

Not necessarily: Hypoechoic means a solid nodule, rather than a liquid-filled nodule which would be a cyst. So hypoechoic liver nodules could be many things, including something called focal nodular hyperplasia, which is not cancer. Your doc may recommend more tests, or a biopsy. Cancer is on the list of possibilities, but it's not time to worry. It's likely to be benign given your age and health! ...Read more

My friend's UTZ has a hypoechoic mass nodule in her left beast. Left breast is at 2 o clock position zone b - 1.3 x 0.6 x 0.8 cm. Is it malignant?

There is: Not enough information to make an assessment. The probability of malignancy depends on various ultrasound features that should be described in the report. Also, there should be a BIRADS code at the end of the report which summarizes the radiologist's assessment of the chance of malignancy. Merely knowing that a hypoechoic nodule is present doesn't narrow it down. It could be benign or suspicious ...Read more

My friends UTZ result is: in her right breast it has multiple cyst and in her left breast It has hypoechoic solid nodule. What does it mean? Thanks

My friends UTZ result is: in her right breast it has multiple cyst and in her left breast It has hypoechoic solid nodule. What does it mean? Thanks

Cysts: Are a benign finding. A hypoechoic solid nodule is a solid mass. The chance that it is malignant, and the proper recommendation for follow up, depends upon various ultrasound, mammographic, and clinical findings that are not mentioned in the question. How was it described in the report? It could need no follow-up, short interval followup, more imaging, or biopsy. Simply not enough info. ...Read more

None: You cannot make a diagnosis from that information. It is likely a benign cyst, but it could be something else. A biopsy is required to make the diagnosis. ...Read more

Nodule on thyroid. Then did a FNA. The result was 1.7cm "Left thyroid nodule is heterogeneous & mildly hypoechoic. Any reason to worry?

What did FNA show?: The description you give is of the ultrasound, not the fine-needle aspiration. Yes, I'm worried. But you do need to find out what the FNA showed. If there's any reason to think this is cancer, address it without delay. Best wishes. ...Read more

Craniotomy nov '11 meningioma, small residual tumor left. Hard lump in neck afterwards. U/s indicates hypoechoic nodule. Tsh norm. Concern warranted?

Yes: While this is unlikely to be related to your meningioma, it should be further evaluated. If this is in your thyroid it could well be an adenoma, but without a biopsy of some type you will not know! ...Read more

Endocrinologist can: You will benefit from seeing and being guided by a Thyroid specialist (called Endocrinologist).
A fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy may be required to determine if the nodules in your thyroid are benign or could be cancerous. Seek medical advice and obtain a second opinion if U R not satisfied and want to be sure/ want more certain guidance. ...Read more

I have a well defined complex hypoechoic nodule. What does this mean?

Picture descriptor: WELL-DEFINED means the borders are sharply seen on the picture. Complex means that there is stuff (echoes) inside the cyst or nodule. The echoes are not as bright as the echoes outside the nodule (hypoechoic). What this means depends on why the ultrasound was originally ordered and what part of the body was scanned. Talk to the doctor who ordered the test. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a 1.0cm x.80cm hypoechoic solid nodule. Could it be cancer?

Go for FNA: I hope you are talking about thyroid nodule. Hypoechoic or hyperechoic how sound wave is reflecting in thyroid tissue. Hypoechoic will have higher incidence of cancer you should have simple painless fine needle aspiration biopsy. Even if it is ca highly curable especially young age. Do not worry and go for it I am sure your doctor already advised you. ...Read more
