Hypoechoic Nodule Thyroid Lower Inner Pole
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?
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?
Recent US shows right side of thyroid a large nodule 3.9 x 2.1 x 2.3 cm. L Mid to lower left lobe shows a discrete hypoechoic heterogeneous nodule 2.
Thyroid nodule: If you were not seen by an endocrinologist, you should be referred to one for possible biopsy. You should also have a thyroid panel done. ...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
A 0.3 x 0.5 x 0.3 CM hypoechoic cystic nodule with punctate internal echo is noted in the lower pole of the right lobe of the thyroid gland.?
Small nodule: Often cystic thyroid nodules can have denser regions called "punctate foci". If the nodule is not cystic those can also be microcalcifications, a finding that increases the risk of thyroid cancer. The key though is that the nodule is very small and therefore requires monitoring only, no matter what its nature may be. ...Read more
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
I have a 57x37x56 nodule on my thyroid. It is solid and hetergenously hypoechoic and is hypervascular at the periphery of the lesion. Is it cancerous?
Unlikely: They typically do not affect the function of the thyroid so you shouldn't "feel sick" with the presence of nodules. Unless they are very large and cause compressive symptoms. In that case, it is obvious and you would know why you feel sick. ...Read more
I have a 3mm hypoechoic solid nodule, with an midly enlarge thyroid, should I worried about that?
Probably not.: See a thyroidologist. Nodules less than 10mm without worrisome features are very common in 44 Y.O. Women. ...Read more
Thyroid US shows 1cm nodule, heterogeeous, hypoechoic, irregular borders. Could this be malignant?
Could be, but. ..: Usually the bad ones are larger and solid. The definitive test is always a biopsy. An U/S finding is just suggestive or not. Discuss the results with your doc and the ultrasonographer. Good luck and best wishes! ...Read more
3x1x2mm hypoechoic nodule on thyroid u/s. Report said most likely a complex cyst. Dr said I don't need a f/u u/s unless he feels something. True?
I had an thyroid us, a 3mm hypoechoic solid nodule, but when I see the images other similars areas are shown, should I ask for a review of the us?
No: 3 mm is very small. Even if you have more it would not change anything. The only thing you need is to have another ultrasound in the future (1yr) and see if anything changes. ...Read more
What does multiple hypoechoic focus nodules mean on my thyroid? What is parenchymal inhomogeneity?
Varying appearance: Inhomogeneous means areas of different echogenicity or density rather than homogeneous where entire gland has same density. Hypoechoic means areas with decreased density or less echoes which often are cystic. As long as any nodular areas are not larger than 1 cm in diameter they usually do not require biopsy. ...Read more
I have two 3x4x3mm and one 2x4x2mm complicated hypoechoic nodules in my thyroid. Should I get them checked by an endocrinologist?
Probably not: You are talking about mm, not cm right? If mm, they are still very small. I would get another ultrasound in 1 year and see a specialist if they are changing or growing. In the meantime ask your pcp to make sure the thyroid is functioning normally. ...Read more
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
Nodules- thyroid us:Superior hypoechoic vascular nodule 7x6x5 mm. Mid lobe hypoechoic nodule 3x4x2 mm. Sup vascular nodule measuring 10x8x5. Worries?
Most likely: Benign but need more info re: lab, exam, history and ultrasound. Discuss potential thyroid biopsy with your physician. ...Read more
