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 measure 4.6 x 2.2 x 1.4 cm. There are several subcentimeter hypoechoic foci in the right. What does this all mean?

Thyroid ultrasound: You should take this U/S report to an endocrinologist, who will examine you, perhaps do blood tests and repeat the U/S, and determine the significance of this. Sub cm hypoechoic foci are usually of little/no significance, but they need the eye of someone who knows what to look for. ...Read more
