Solitary Right Thyroid Lobe Calcification
Watch/retest: Unless you have a thyroid cancer history, the nodule is suspicious on ultrasound or other factors are in play -- check serum thyroglobulin and thyroid function. Repeat doctor's exam an ultrasound in a year. Generally of very low significance and found in over 50% of the population. ...Read more
Subcentimeter hypodense nodule on left thyroid lobe with coarse focus of calcification---subcentimeter left thyroid nodule.Non-specific in nature.
Thyroid nodules: Most nodules less than 1 cm are not concerning and can be monitored with periodic ultrasounds. Some features such as calcification may heighten concern. Much more information is necessary in your situation. Is there family history of thyroid cancer, personal history of hyper or hypothyroidism, and radiation exposure? You need to discuss this with an endocrinologist and arrange a treatment plan. ...Read more
Thyroid: right lobe 5x1.7x1.3cm isthmus 0.41cm left lobe 4.2x1.6x1.4cm hypoechoic nodule in right lobe 0.2x0.2x0.4cm. Normal vascularity. Cancerous?
Very unlikely: to be cancerous. May require ultrasound follow up to assess for serial changes. ...Read more
Small thyroid, heterogenous in echotexture. no mass. ? small nodularity inferior lobe. RT nodule or heterogeneity gland. need interpretation
May need follow up : The provider who ordered the study should have been able to explain the findings to you and whether or not you need any follow up. There is a possibillity you may need a follow up test that looks at whether the areas of nodularity are active hormone producing tissue or whether they are cold spots in the thyroid. Cold spots often have to be looked at in more detail. ...Read more
Thyroid ultrasound1.4x1.1x1.1cm rim calcified nodule left mid thyroid.Well circumscribe hypoechoic1.4x1.9x1cm nodule w/mild internal flow.Is it cancer?
Let's find out: This may be nothing but a colloid nodule in a developing nodular goiter. If the radiologist can't rule out cancer, you may be getting a fine-needle aspiration. 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 antibodies blood- 10 000
Thyroid ultrasound- right and left lobe gland slightly coarse in echo texture.few tiny colloid cysts bilateral. Right lobe 18x14x40mm. Left lobe 16x15x53mm.
Right thyroid cysts. dominant mid pole left predominantly solid left thyroid nodule subcentimeter solid upper pole left nodule. what does this mean?
Thyroid cyst- benign: The nodule in left upper pole, which is solid in nature, did they do any blood test to r/o excess thyroid hormone secretions?Thyroid cysts are benign fluid collections most of the time from degeneration of cells (dead cells in a particular area). The nodule needs to be followed up to r/o thyrotoxicosis, possible malignancy. Fine needle Biopsy, Radioactive Iodine uptake study will r/oabove condns. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hetrogenous thyriod nodule without evidence of discrete thyroid nodule it right lobe measures 5.7x1.4x1.7 while left lobe 5.4x1.4x1.7?
Hashimoto's disease?: A very common thyroid condition, known as hashimoto or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis -- is when the body's immune system attacks the thyroid gland. This can cause an enlarged inefficient thyroid gland (large size of ultrasound measurements) and scarred heterogeneous appearance (in ultrasound description). Eventually many patients will become hypothyroid. Thyroid antibody levels are usually high. ...Read more
Complex cystic hypoechoic nodules right parotid gland with internal vascular septations &calcifications Echogenic foci Biopsy in future. Inconclusive?
Ultrasound: 2.6cm isoechoic mass in right hepatic lobe.14mm hyperechoic nodule in right anterior lobe. What does it mean?
Thyroid us reveals small hypoechoic adenomas two, septated cyst left lobe and 11x10x4 mm solid hypoechoic mass anterior to jugular, concerning?
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

Prominent vessels in lobe of thyroid, nodule on other lobe, hypothyroid, inconclusive fna of nodule?
My thyroid u/s show mild cervical lymphadenopathy small nodule inferior posterior left lobe of thyroid Additional parathyroid adenoma/lymphadenopathy?
Specialists: These findings are best evaluated by a Thyroidologist/endocrinologist collaborating with a skilled head and neck surgeon. More than likely a needle biopsy of the thyroid nodule and possibly a ct scan of the neck will be recommended. The radiologist will thoroughly review these images with the specialists. ...Read more
