Ovoid Macrolulated Solid Nodule
3 thyroid nodules, hypoechoic solid nodule with few tiny calcified 1st FNA is benign follicular lesion and 2nd is benign follicular nodule,possible?
Thyroid follicles: Most likely, the ultrasound is picking up benign follicular cysts, or areas of "colloid" (where thyroid hormone is made) arranged in a circular pattern or nodule. From the description (& the 2 FNA biopsies) it's unlikely to be cancer. In certain parts of the world (40% of it), iodine deficiency is common & thyroid nodules are prominent. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/thyroid-nodules ...Read more
Thyroid nodules: Are almost always benign (not cancerous) but should be followed over months to years for increase in size or change in consistency. labs can be followed as well. Your doctor with the help of an Endocrinologist specialist can help you decide if a FNA -fine needle aspiration is necessary. If they get very big and/or obstruct nearby tissues a Surgeon ENT can help determine if removal is necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
1st FNA is benign follicular lesion, u/s ;hypoechoic thyroid nodule with few small calcifications, 2nd FNA ; hard consistency solid nodule,%ofcancer?
Talk to YOUR MD: You clearly have a thyroid problem, and this needs to be discussed in context of the bigger clinical picture. If you have had FNA done, you have a doc following you. See them and ask what this means in your case and what should be done next. Lab results never occur in isolation. They occur in people, and the whole person has to be considered when making a diagnosis and treatment plan. Best wishes! ...Read more
Thyroid us reveals small hypoechoic adenomas two, septated cyst left lobe and 11x10x4 mm solid hypoechoic mass anterior to jugular, concerning?
3cm hypoechoic solid vascular thyroid nodule with a cluster of hurthle cells, fna benign, follow up ultrasound now shows microcalcifications. Cancer?
Not necessarily...: The fact that FNA was reported as benign, the nodule is unlikely to be malignant. Small droplets of benign colloid often mimic "microcalcificatins" of papillary tumor, hence caution is advised. I would suggest repeating the FNA, and consider also collecting samples for gene profiling studies, such as, those manufactured by Veracyte and Asuragen (Note:I have no financial/other interest.) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
US shows 1 cm rounded hypoechoic mass w/ internal echoes, debris filled cyst or solid. CT says either a solid enhanicing or complicated cystic. Cance?
Can be either: A 1 cm. or less than 1/2 inch is rarely identified as a malignant lesion. On US too difficult to define the origin of the hypoechoic signal. One questions the symptoms that might have let the lesion be defined and where is this nodule . Is it superficial, in the abdominal cavity, palpated on neck exam or where else was the lesion defined. If there is suspicion of malignancy then bx. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thyroid u/s: 3x2x3mm cystic nodule, ill-defined 1.6x0.8x1.0cm hypoechoic nodule r lobe; 6x3x6mm solid, slightly hypoechoic nodule l lobe- next step?
Followup exam: By age 60, about one-half of all people have a thyroid nodule, found either through examination or with imaging. Over 90% of such nodules are benign. Hypoechoic noodules are usually cysts. A complex nodule over one cm. With blood flow should be biopsied. This can be performed by neeedle or core bx. Most nodules are asymptomatic. Follow up us examination in six months suggested. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

2 times of FNA are benign follicular nodule but US finding irregular hypoechoic solid nodule with internal flecks of calcifications, possible?
Thyroid nodule: Solid nodules that appear dark or hypoechoic on ultrasound and have small calcifications are more likely to be cancerous. Fluid filled nodules (>2cm for FNA) without these features could be benign. Correlation with the US data is necessary to be certain that the lesion was adequately sampled by FNA. ...Read more
Solid mass: Have your doctor show you the image that confirmed the above mass. Since it is a circumscribed mass surgical removal should not be a problem. The surgery is straightforward and the recover is early. ...Read more
Nodules- thyroid us:Superior hypoechoic vascular nodule 7x6x5 mm.Mid lobe hypoechoic nodule 3x4x2 mm. Sup vascular nodule measuring 10x8x5. Worries?
Complex cystic hypoechoic nodules right parotid gland with internal vascular septations &calcifications Echogenic foci Biopsy in future. Inconclusive?
A single ovoid hypervascular, hypoechoic nodules noted in the right mid gland measuring 0.4x0.3x0.2cm, thyroid. Also a 4mm ovoid nodule found?
Heterogeneous thyroid, my ultrasound stated that diffusely heterogeneous thyroid with no discrete cystic or solid nodule identified.
May be autoimmune: Heterogeneous thyroid on ultrasound refers to a thyroid that looks mottled with both dark and light areas throughout. This is a typical finding in people with autoimmune thyroid disease such as hashimoto's thyroiditis or grave's disease. It sounds like there is nothing suspicious that would require biopsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have 3.2cm Heterogeneous hypoechoic predominantly solid nodule-cystic, calcification- midpole right lobe increase vascularity what does this mean?
Thyroid u/s finding suspicious for malignancy with small flecks of calcification in irregular hypoechoic solid nodule but 3 biopsies are benign
"Suspicious": doesn't mean there is cancer, it only means there is some probability of cancer, which could be as low as 10%. Biopsy is the gold standard. If the biopsy is negative and shows a specific benign process that accounts for the nodule(concordant), then it is likely not cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is a heterogeneously hypoechonic nodule 1.4x 1.1 x 1.1 cm nodule with microlobulated margins with no calcifications a possible malignant one?
I'm sorry I can't: give you my best answer because I don't know what tissue/organ you are talking about -- breast? thyroid? liver? In general, when a nodule is heterogeneous, meaning various densities within the nodule, vs homogenous (when it is all the same), one is more suspicious. Microlobulations may add to this. I would not feel safe saying this is a benign nodule. Good wishes. ...Read more
Hyperplastic nodule: This sounds like a hyper plastic nodule. These are usually benign. In the absence of prior studies, this usually is followed up to show it's stable nature. If it changes or grows it would need a biopsy. Nonetheless would suggest an in depth discussion with your doctor ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
1.5x0.6x1.1.1cm ill defined heterogeneous hypoechoic area w/internal vascularity no calcification found on heterogeneous right thyroid lobe. Explain?
Thyroid nodule: You need to see your endocrinologist for interpretation of this. A 1.5 cm thyroid nodule probably should be biopsied, although the likeihood of this being cancer is low (probably less than 10%). A nodule among a multinodular gland is less of a concern, as is a nodule in a hashimotos gland. All this needs to be examined. ...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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
