Lobulated Hypoechoic Nodule
What is a lobulated heterogeneous hypoechoic nodule with scattered calfifications in the inferior right lobe of thyroid mean?
What is a lobulated heterogeneous hypoechoic nodule with scattered calicifications in the inferior right lobe of thyroid mean?
Thyroid Nodule: Thyroid nodules are very common. About 70% of the population has a nodule (many don't know it). About 5% of nodules are cancerous, which is why we care. Unless there were concerning characteristics on the ultrasound like microcalcifications, >1cm, taller than wide or increased blood flow or you have a family history or radiation exposure, typically we just follow-up with an annual ultrasound. ...Read more
Breast u/s: well circumscribed hypoechoic solid nodules slightly lobulated wider than taller 2cm x 1cm and 0.84cm x 0.47cm means??

Hi as my breast utz stated solid hypoehoic nodule is noted with its characteristics, solid, lobulated, fairly defined border. Should I worry with this?
Difficult to say: Based on limited info, but this sounds like either a BIRADS category 3(probably benign, ...Read more
That description: Is not specific enough to venture a guess as to the level of suspicion. Other mammographic/sonographic features will determine how suspicious it is, and whether biopsy is indicated. Was this a screening mammo? Likely you will need additional mammo views and an ulltrasound for further evaluation. ...Read more
I had an ultrasound yesterday of my thyroid it say borderline mildly enlarged thyroid is mildly heterogenous and lobulated without discrete nodule?
Which test can confirm cause of 2mm granuloma and 8 mm slightly lobulated well-defined nodule that was seen in my lung CT report 4 months ago
Typically follow-up: The 2 mm granuloma is likely postinfectious in nature and benign. The 8mm slightly lobulated nodule will require a follow-up scan. The interval of the follow-up scan is determined by your risk category. Generally smokers or those with a history of cancer will be followed at a shorter interval. If the lesion does not change in size over the course of two years this is generally considered a benign lesion. ...Read more
2mm granuloma was seen in lung CT report, and also 8 mm slightly lobulated well-defined nodule, please can u advice me what r the possible causes?
Many causes: The 2 mm granuloma is benign and nothing to worry about. Read here for more info — http://news. Cancerconnect. Com/what-is-a-lung-granuloma/ unless the 8 mm lobulated well-defined nodule contains fat (benign hamartoma) or calcified (likely another benign granuloma), it will require a follow up ct (in 3-6 months). This is assuming you don't have a known primary malignancy that you haven't mentioned. ...Read more
Will I need a new CT scan to check cause & to treat a 2mm granuloma and 8 mm slightly lobulated well-defined nodule? It was seen in lung CT 4 months
Lung nodule: New lung masses found on imaging should be followed or biopsied. Many small lesions less than 1 cm in size are observed. If it is enlarging or is associated with symptoms such as cough, or coughing blood would be worrisome. Prior ct scans that show the mass previously would be reassuring. Risk factors for lung cancer such as smoking would raise suspicions. Speak with your md, yes to repeat ct. ...Read more

Which type of lung biopsy will I need for 8 mm slightly lobulated nodule seen 4 months ago in CT scan, also ve 2mm granuloma too and bronchiectasis?
CT — 5.8x6.4cm rnd complex cystic mass in posterior pelvis inseparable from adjacent sigmoid colon. Demonstrates lobulated enhancing nodule centrally.
Not sure: A posterior pelvic complex cystic mass in a 65-year-old woman can have many potential causes. This needs to be checked out to find the actual cause and to consider treatment options. You should see a gastroenterologist for further evaluation, if you're not already seeing one. ...Read more
What does this statement mean in lay terms..... Adnexa: 4.0 x5.7 x3.2 cm lobulated hypoechoic mas with small amount of flow on color doppler?
Adnexa is Ovary/mass: You have a mass in or around your Ovary. Your Gynecologist can help you in terms of future monitoring or removal of this mass. Most such masses are Ovarian cysts. Surgical removal is sometimes recommended when the size is getting over 5CM...your is nearly-5 CM, so get it checked by your gynecologist who ordered this test for you. ...Read more
My wife was just found to have a "lobulated hypoechoic mass" in her groin area? More tests are forthcoming but what possible diagnoses are there?
Need to know organ.: In which organ of the groin (skin? Cervix? Uterus?) was the lobulated hypoechoic mass found? Usually, hypoechoic means that it's fluid-filled, ie, a cyst of some sort. Lobulated means that rather than being spherical or ovoid, it seems to have two different lobes ("Mickey Mouse ears" in appearance). Some organs are prone to forming cysts; others don't (in which case it's more worrisome). ...Read more
A hypoechoic lobulated mass in the interior pole of the left kidney demonstrates internal flow on doppler interrogation measuring 1.1x1.4x1.2cm. Findi?
More tests needed: It appears the next step would be to get a ct scan or MRI with contrast (if you can tolerate), as I am sure your physician or radiologist has already recommended/ordered. There are many possibilities and this is just a very scientific description of what is seen on the ultrasound, but the radiologist cannot tell you what it is yet. After the ct or mri, a biopsy or surgery might be necessary. ...Read more

Scans showed a lobulated heterogeneous hypoechoic area in right breast. Awaiting FNA. Could this be serious? Strong family history of breast cancer.
Lobulated mass: Most lobulated, heterogeneous, hypoechoic masses are benign, meaning non-cancerous in women of your age group. Follow up on the FNA though, and be careful in the future since you have a strong FH of breast CA. ...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
What is hypoechoic nodule? Is it cancerous? I have tiny hypoechoic nodule in isthmus measuring 8.5-5.9 mm. Is there is any problem?
Is it okay to wait for 6 mounths to see if the Wall hypoechoic nodule atthe lower zone of the superficial lobe right parotid6.6×4.4mmwill grow or not?
Probably ok: Just make sure to check with the doctor that ordered the test. If they are unsure, consider a consultation with an ENT doctor that deals with parotid disease. Not all of them do. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Not possible to say: It is not possible to say without seeing what they look like. Sometimes it is necessary to undergo additional tests to determine whether they are cancerous. The Best talk to your doctor for 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
