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

Hypothyroidism ultrasound shows hypervascular solid nodule inferior left lobe. 13x9x10mm. What is the next step? Odds of being malignant?

FNA biopsy: Hi. The nodule could be cancer (although considering all nodules, odds are in your favor it's not). Make sure TSH is not suppressed (if it is, you need a thyroid scan...hyperfunctioning nodules are never cancer). If TSH isn't suppressed, you need a fine needle aspiration biopsy for cytology (and hopefully gene testing). Good luck! ...Read more

FNA results 2.4cm thyroid nodule was FLUS. Please explain good vs bad for US. Mildly hypervascular solid circumscribed. Histo is microfollicles.?

FNA results 2.4cm thyroid nodule was FLUS. Please explain good vs bad for US. Mildly hypervascular solid circumscribed. Histo is microfollicles.?

Referral: Most thyroid nodules are benign and this is a common problem. However, this can be serious. Usually a fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNA) will determine if the nodule is cancerous or benign. This test can get right to the bottom of the issue. Often an ultrasound is needed to determine the characteristics of a thyroid nodule. You need a pathologist and radiologist you can trust! ...Read more

I have a 4.4cmx3.5cmx1.1cm solid thyroid nodule. The report read "Microcalcifications" and "Hypervascular". What is the likelihood that it is cancer?

Needs Biopsy: Thyroid nodule with microcalcification&hypervascularity have a likelihood of being Cancerous in about approx 5.3 % of cases according to literature. Ask your endocrinologist for Biopsy
We really need other teatures like irregular or regular border, Pattern of calcifications like few few or snowstorm parttern, minimal or high internal flow
These are other features taken into account to prediction ...Read more

I have a 4.5 x 3.5 thyroid nodule: solid, hypervascular. My tgab is at 70 and TSH is 3.15. I am symptomatic. Is this a cancer marker?

I have a 4.5 x 3.5 thyroid nodule: solid, hypervascular. My tgab is at 70 and TSH is 3.15. I am symptomatic. Is this a cancer marker?

No: Tgab and TSH are not cancer markers. It's important to know if the nodule is 4.5 cm or mm? If cm, you should get an ultrasound guided biopsy. If mm, it is very small and just need surveillance. If you are young and already symptomatic with a 4.5 cm thyroid mass, surgery is an option for you. Please discuss all this with your doc. ...Read more

1.7 CM thyroid "isoechoic solid nodule" mid-lobe. 2 fnas both came back non-diagnostic. Told next step is my choice. Should I have the lobe removed?

1.7 CM thyroid "isoechoic solid nodule" mid-lobe. 2 fnas both came back non-diagnostic. Told next step is my choice. Should I have the lobe removed?

Probably not...: The fact that 2 FNA's came back as non-diagnostic, and that it is isoechoic suggest that the nodule is most likely benign. I would suggest going to a different facility (with good reputation) and repeating the FNA. Alternatively, you can wait another 6 months or so and repeat the US. ...Read more

Discuss with doctor: There are some features that you mention that would warrant an FNA for evaluation of thyroid cancer. Your medical history and exposure is also very important when considering need for biopsy. It is advised that you discuss these results and further diagnostic procedures such as FNA with your primary care doctor or specialist who conducts thyroid biopsies in your area (endocrine or ENT doctor). ...Read more

Is it poss. Cancer? Us results thyroid nodule: solid, heterogeneous & isoechoic nodule w/in the mid to lower right lobe, 4.2cm, increas. Vascularity

Yes it's possible: Any thyroid nodule over 4 cm needs to be removed surgically to make sure not cancerous per ata guidelines. I would still get a fna first before going to surgery but needs to be removed. More info on my website on thyroid nodules at www. Cvsurgicalgroup. Com. ...Read more

Is it bad if the nodule is hypervascular?

It is a risk factor: A hypervascular thyroid nodule has an increased risk of being malignant. However, the vast majority of thyroid nodules are benign. If it's growing, or bigger than 1.5 cm, it should be biopsied. ...Read more

What does a small heterogeneous hypervascular thyroid mean with 12mm nodule on right?

Thyroid US results: It is hard to interpret a thyroid ultrasound, especially online. Your profile says "hypothyroid and raised antibodies". This could mean Hashimotos, and the US is consistent with that. A 12 mm nodules is small, and could be consistent with the scarring in a Hashimotos gland, but this requires review by an Endocrinologist. ...Read more

Can huge hypervascular thyroid nodule be goiter?

Can huge hypervascular thyroid nodule be goiter?

Yes: By definition, any enlargement of the thyroid gland is a goiter. So if the nodule is causing the thyroid to be enlarged, there is a goiter. The question is, what is the cause of the nodule? Sounds like a biopsy is in your future. ...Read more

Follow-up thyroid us shows new "ill defined hypoechoic hypervascular nodule" that is 6x5x5 mm. Is this significant? I see my doc next week but curious

Not necessarily: The nodule is very small. Ill defined means they couldn't be sure if it was there. In something this small and ill-defined, I often don't worry too much about it. I would re-ultrasound again in 1 year to see if it changes. ...Read more

Thyroid gland slightly enlarged but has homogeneous texture. Right nodule noted 0.5 × 0.3 × 0.3. No hypervascular on doppler in both gland what isit?

Follow up nodule: thyroid nodules are very common especially in older patients. The vast majority are not cancer and just hyper plastic nodules (overgrowth of normal tissue). In young patients like yourself thyroid nodules should be watched more closely. A nodule less than 1 cm in size does not require biopsy unless there are suspicious features such as calcification or increased blood flow. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Need cells: Hi. You need an FNA. There are some ultrasound (U/S) characteristics that can suggest cancer (irregular borders, micro-calcifications, hypo-echoic, vascularity), but all you need at this point is an FNA for cells (and hopefully gene testing). Good luck! ...Read more
