Stable Nodular Denisties
Solitary thyroid hypoechoic nodule, peripheral thin calcification, peripheral vascularization, 7-6-7 mm; TSH: 0.465; TG: 48.7. Can it be cancerous?
Most likely not: This is most likely a benign adenoma; however, due to vascularity it may need to be biopsies/excised. Your nodule is right at the borderline for biopsy recommendation. Some endocrinologists would also recommend waiting six months and repeating ultrasound then to make sure there is no change in size of the nodule. ...Read more
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
Is this alarming
No acute focal lung infiltrate
Stable appearing tiny ovoid hyperdensity which may relate to calcified granuloma?
Stable is good. : Technically it would be good for me to know when the last xray was (the one to which they're comparing the current one). Bad things will pretty universally grow over time, so if this hypersensitive has not grown in months, or years, then it's very likely benign. ...Read more

6 month injury. MRI: reads chronic subcentimeter avulsion fx lateral navicular with sclerotic margins and cystic changes. Will this require surgery?
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
Meaning of Thyroid U/S showed solid nodule 1.0 x 1.1 x 1.6 CM containing mild peripheral vascularity w/o calcification & rounded hypoechoic lymph node?
3cm hyperechoic thyroid nodule with increased vascularity, normal TSH fnac- follicular cell with hyperplastic area. What it indicates?
Uncertain: The fna can only help if it shows cancer. But in your case it is ambiguous, so your doctor should guide you what to do next?...What did he/she suggest as the next step? Most doctors would next recommend either surgical excision or monitor closely for some time and see if it is growing in size in which case it has to be taken out. ...Read more
Is it normal to have CT scan say stable increased lobulated density in anterior superior mediastinum may represent residual disease vs thymic tissue?
Mediastinum: Of course it depends on many factors. It's normal to see thymic tissue until early 20s is seen in fewer than 50% of people over 40. This density can be possibly be anything including normal, reaction to infection, thymic cysts, or hyperplasia from systemic disease. Fortunately it is stable, but a conversation with your doc and radiologist would be the best thing moving forward. ...Read more
Fna, 2 nodules left lobe. Abundant benign appearing epithelial cells, hemosiderin-laden macrophages& colloid present. Scattered microfollicles noted. Path says can't entirely rule out fillocular lesio?
FNA results 2.4cm thyroid nodule was FLUS.Please explain good vs bad for US.Mildly hypervascular solid circumscribed. Histo is microfollicles. ?
Referral: Most thyroid nodules are benign and this is a common problem. However, this can be serious. Usually a fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNA) will determine if the nodule is cancerous or benign. This test can get right to the bottom of the issue. Often an ultrasound is needed to determine the characteristics of a thyroid nodule. You need a pathologist and radiologist you can trust! ...Read more
Yearly mammogram showed stable right breast nodule consistent with benign etiology (BR-RADS 2 Benign) stayed the same for 2 yrs should I be concern?
No concern: The mammo defines a malignant lesion as a stellate one usually with associated microcalcifications. A sono can suggest the nodule is a fibroadenoma or has fluid in it which is benign. An MRI can further elucidate the nature of the lesion. A malignancy does not remain stable in the breast but is noted to enlarge and invade surrounding tissue over a period of months. ...Read more
