Varying appearance: inhomogeneous means areas of different echogenicity or density rather than homogeneous where entire gland has same density.

In some areas of the country almost half the population has lung nodules detectable on a ct and histo gets blamed for many of them, with or without proof. It usually requires no treatment. ...Read more
