Thyroid ultrasound1.4x1.1x1.1cm rim calcified nodule left mid thyroid.Well circumscribe hypoechoic1.4x1.9x1cm nodule w/mild internal flow.Is it cancer?

With this pattern of calcification, it's unlikely to be an aggressive tumor even if it is cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thyroid us left lobe: increased vascularity, heterogeneous. Nodules: 1 - 2.1cm; 2 - 1cm pulmonary nodules. Fna- microacinar, follicular groupings. My surgeon is out of town. Should i be worried?
U/s shows dominant 27mm×15×13 Nodule wih heterogeneous prominent blood flow...2 small nodules other lobe..they were hyoerechoic.I'm scared it's cancer?
Nodules: I assume these nodules are on your thyroid gland. As you have multiple nodules, the odds are more in favor of it not being cancer, but any nodule larger than1cm or 10 mm should be evaluated and followed and likely biopsied to rule out cancer. I would recommend seeing an endocrinologist to discuss laboratory work/thyroid scan and a possible biopsy of that larger nodule. ...Read more

97 yo pt with thyromegaly on ct. U/S showed thyroid nodular goiter.1 right calcific and 2 left hyperechoic solid nodules. Should be worked up(Age)?
Yes..: I would probably work them up further. If the pt has not had a thyroid scan and you still not sure if you want to order or perform a biopsy that should give you a better idea what you are dealing with. However if the solid nodules are > 1 cm they should be biopsied. It also depends on your TSH levels, if elevated then it all depends on the size, if low TSH and hyper functioning then needs tx. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers

Thoracic surgeon said hemartoma, radiologists said lung nodule is possibly cancer.Who should I believe?
Depends: This depends on the size of the nodule and its characteristics on ct. Presence of fat and popcorn like calcifications in the nodule may suggest a harmatoma. If the nodule was present on a prior chest xray or ct, it would suggest benignity. Is it possible one doctor has access to your old studies & the other doctor doesn't. A pet/ct study would be useful as most harmatoma are benign on pet. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Multiple nodules is most commonly associated with benign goiter, the nodules you describe warrant a fine needle biopsy for specific diagnosis and treatment recommendations. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
