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

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

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"?
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".
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
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
Ultrasound showed tere is a hypoechoic nodule in the left lobe of the liver measuring 1.3 CM in diameter. There is no evidence of ascites. Your diagnos?
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

The nodules you describe are quite small and most likely cause little, if any, harm.
If you feel OK and your thyroid lab levels are OK do not be disturbed.
I don't think biopsy of those small nodules would be easy. ...Read more

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

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
Do not know: You need to discuss the possibilities with your doctor. Please review the radiologist's ultrasound report as well. Given its size, it may be something to follow up on, since biopsy may be difficult (if even necessary depending on us appearance). ...Read more
