Thyroid Is Diffusely Heterogeneous In Echotexture
What is a small thyroid gland and of diffusely heterogeneous echotexture with a multiobulated contour?
I have done USGthyroid. Normal thyroid and isthumus show diffusely altered heterogeneous echotexture. Vascularity present. No lesion nor calcification.
Thyroid function?: Hi. What prompted the thyroid ultrasound? Sounds like no nodule, so thyroid cancer is not the issue here. Heterogeneous echo texture is non-specific, but certainly can be seen in Hashimoto's. Do you have normal thyroid function? Even if so, you could check TPO & thyroglobulin antibodies to see if there's evidence of autoimmune thyroiditis. Good luck! ...Read more
Bilateral thyroid lobes are enlarged and show diffuse heterogeneous echotexture with increased vascularity. What does that mean?
What have your doctors said about this. There are many options that include surgery or doing nothing. You can rely on your doctors for your management.
If your thyroid levels are OK and your thyroid gland is not very enlarged it would be OK to have nothing done aside from regular examination. ...Read more
Should a vague 3mm nodule in the inferior left lobe (heterogeneously in echotexture) of the thyroid be biopsied? Should I worry about this?
Both of my thyroid lobes demonstrate heterogeneous echotexture without focal nodule. Right lobe measures L: 3.37 cm, left lobe measures L: 3.33 cm?
Thyroid: A heterogeneous, normal sized thyroid may not mean much, or it could indicate one of a number of inflammatory/infiltrative processes i.e. thyroiditis. Sometimes symptoms may not be noticed. The thyroid US findings must be interpreted in conjunction with lab values/thyroid function tests, symptoms, and clinical findings to assess the significance, so best bet is to discuss with your doc. ...Read more

What tests?: You may have normal TSH and free t 4 but still have anti thyroid antibodies. That would be called euthyroid hashimotos. So "normal" thyroid test doesn't tell whole story. ...Read more

Hashimoto's disease?: Common cause of ultrasound pattern with hyperemia is Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Can initially be hyperthyroid and eventually becomes hypothyroid. Usually an autoimmune disease with thyroid antibodies, When hypothyroid usually have to have thyroid hormone suppliments. ...Read more
What causes this finding on u/s "thyroid demonstrating mild heterogeneous echotexture of the parenchyma" -- my dr said it was "fine". My TSH is normal?
Possibilities: It means your thyroid is not as smooth as it should be. This could be normal or indicates autoimmune thyroid disease. Since your TSH is normal then no hurry but on the next blood test ask your doc to also check your thyroid antibodies. ...Read more

Thyroid is not: The problem. It is not clear what problems you have, however, it is unlikely that the problem is due to your thyroid. You did not state if you have any symptoms. If you do not, it would be a good idea to not chase lab results. ...Read more
I have a normal TSH and heterogeneous echotexture. Enlarged thyroid gland which I was told not to worry nothings wrong with my thyroid. Any advice?
Norm. Tsh, pth 103, tpo ab 839, calcium 383, abnormal thyroid/para-heterogeneous parenchymal echotexture-thyroid, no nodule, ill defined hypoecoic lesion posterior to rt thyroid lobe, ill def para nodule?
Hi. Your PTH is high and MEN-1 in the family. That calcium makes no sense unless it's a 24-hour urine calcium, in which case it's high. What's your serum calcium?
Your thyroid autoantibodies are high, and your thyroid function is normal. MEN-1 is not assoc. With autoimmune thyroid disease, so that looks like maybe an unrelated finding. Most MEN-1 patients get primary hyperparathyroidism before 57 ...Read more

Can you explain this statement? : The thyroid gland demonstrates heterogenous echotexture without a discrete mass or
Thyroid ultrasound: Your thyroid ultrasound was ordered by your doctor to evaluate an abnormal thyroid gland. Generally, we are looking for nodules or masses of concern. Happily no masses were seen. Heterogeneity is the characteristic of your gland showing variations in water content which would be expected findings in glands that are swollen or inflamed. ...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

I have a 6mm mass in my left thyroid love and it's considered diffuse heterogeneous. What does this mean?
Nonspecific: A 6 mm thyroid nodule is small. We usually do not worry about nodules under 10 mm. A diffusely heterogeneous thyroid is commonly seen in patients with hashimoto's thyroiditis. This is an autoimmune disorder that can result in an underactive thyroid. You list being on immunosuppressive therapy. If you have one autoimmune disorder, you are at higher risk for another. ...Read more

Bilateral avascular hypoechoic nodules greater than 1 cm in heterogenous thyroid. Diffuse uptake on PET as incidental finding. Cancer or thyroiditis?
Graves/Thyroiditis: Most commonly this is due to graves disease or thyroiditis. In both of these cases your immune system attacks your thyroid and tries to kill it, because it thinks it is foreign, like a virus. However in graves disease the antibodies that attack the thyroid actually stimulate receptors that make it grow and produce too much thyroid hormone. In thyroiditis the immune cells infiltrate the thyroid. ...Read more
