Bilateral thyroid lobes are enlarged and show diffuse heterogeneous echotexture with increased vascularity. What does that mean?

Thyroid: What have your doctors said about this. There are many options that include surgery or doing nothing. You can rely on your doctors for your management.

If your thyroid levels are OK and your thyroid gland is not very enlarged it would be OK to have nothing done aside from regular examination. ...Read more

Thyroid function?: Hi. What prompted the thyroid ultrasound? Sounds like no nodule, so thyroid cancer is not the issue here. Heterogeneous echo texture is non-specific, but certainly can be seen in Hashimoto's. Do you have normal thyroid function? Even if so, you could check TPO & thyroglobulin antibodies to see if there's evidence of autoimmune thyroiditis. Good luck! ...Read more

Dear Doc, Ultrasound says: Prostate is mildly enlarged with heterogenous echotexture (27.29 cc). No bladder base indentation seen. Please help. Thanks?

The findings you: Describe are typical for benign prostate enlargement. Prostate enlargement may be patchy; it usually involves the center of the gland. Prostate cancer tends to affect the outer part of the gland and may escape the covering (capsule) of the gland. That said, ask your urologist to explain these findings & advise u about follow up. If u have symptoms of prostate enlargement, u need f/u in any case. ...Read more

What does a heterogeneous echotexture uterus mean?

Two reasons: "The two most common causes of heterogenous uterus are uterine fibroids, which are benign muscular growths in the uterine wall, and adenomyosis, which is a proliferation of the normal uterine glands into the muscular wall of the uterus. These conditions are very common, affecting up to maybe 50% of women by middle age." ...Read more

What does Heterogeneous echotexture of the liver mean? My ulta sound also said for liver no mass and normal size.

It means that: The liver texture is not uniform. Most commonly this is due to fatty infiltration, a benign condition with numerous causes. It can also be due to various other inflammatory or infiltrative processes. It is a nonspecific finding, so it has to be interpreted in the context of your clinical picture and lab values. Talk to your doctor about the significance in your particular case. ...Read more

Thyroid: A heterogeneous, normal sized thyroid may not mean much, or it could indicate one of a number of inflammatory/infiltrative processes i.e. thyroiditis. Sometimes symptoms may not be noticed. The thyroid US findings must be interpreted in conjunction with lab values/thyroid function tests, symptoms, and clinical findings to assess the significance, so best bet is to discuss with your doc. ...Read more

26 f w/ nodule that is solid heterogenous, increased vascularity, internal microcalcifications, 7x5x8mm, is this high risk malignant?

Not for sure: More than 95 percent of thyroid nodules are benign. Size is criteria for biopsy, greater than 1 cm. For thyroid nodules with a diameter of 1 cm or less, the sensitivity of microcalcifications for malignancy lower than in larger nodules. Should follow closely with repeat us exam. ...Read more

Thyroidologist: A thyroidologist or endocrinologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you about your thyroid status and ultrasound findings and to determine whether a needle biopsy and/or referral to a thyroid surgeon is advisable. As a rule multiple nodules are more apt to be benign as opposed to a single cold nodule in males. Follow-up in these cases are also important even after the first consultation. ...Read more

Not sure: I'm not exactly sure what the question is but I don't like the sound of the mass you describe. It sounds as if this was a breat ultrasound finding. Is that true? If so, what was the physicians recommendation? If my assumptions are correct, there is no definite clear relationship to shortness of breath from a physiologic standpoint, but shortness of breath should to be evaluated. ...Read more
