Thyroid Parenchyma And Minimally Heterogeneous
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
I have a right thyroid gland size 5.5 x 2.0 2x2 cm it say iit is parenchyma is heterogeneous, is that cancerous? I don't understand
Thyroid: the ecoestrutura glandular parenchyma is heterogeneous, individualizing bilaterally presence of predominantly hypoechoic nodular areas.?
What do thyroid US results mean? Homogeneous echogenicity. Multiple nodules bilaterally, no cysts ID'd. Heterogeneous parenchyma w/bilateral nodules.
Thyroid nodules: Did they measure the largest nodules? Thyroid nodules are fairly common, and the vast majority of them are not cancerous, but if one is above 1 cm, a biopsy may be considered (there's some variation in how thyroid nodules are managed). Some can give you hyperthyroidism. I'd speak with your doctor or an endocrinologist about further steps. ...Read more
Hi my son had his recent thyroid ultrasound and the results stated same as above. Heterogeneous Parenchyma of several nodules one with vascular blood?
Possibly Hashimoto's: Heterogeneous parenchyma is a typical finding in patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. One might check thyroid antibodies (thyroid peroxidase and thyroglobulin antibodies) to try to confirm this. We generally do not biopsy nodules unless they are more than 1 cm in size. ...Read more
"Heterogeneous hypo-echoic thyroid parenchyma with regional right side enlarged lymph nodes." appears in my thyroid Ultra sound test. What's this?
No simple answer: All that medical mumbo jumble is very clear to a physician but not so to the average person. You need to speak to your physician who ordered the ultrasound test so that he/she can easily explain the anatomy of what is going on and any consequences of this finding. It's too much to go over in this context. ...Read more

Does mild intrinsic vascularity mean anything on a solid micro follicular thyroid lesion which is circumscribed and heterogeneous?
Possibly: I want to clarify your description. You wrote a micro follicular lesion. This is an older pathology dx. Was this biopsied or is this a micronodule (<1 cm). Well circumscribed is good. Heterogeneous nod need to know the character of the solid part. After the other info, increased blood flow is a risk factor cancer (but now considered a minor factor). Thyroid func is key here. W/more info FNA or not ...Read more
I have heterogeneous thyroid with some mild echogenic small nodules in the left lobe what does this mean?
Size matters: Hi. Echogenic heterogeneity in the thyroid is commonly seen in autoimmune thyroid conditions, most often Hashimoto's. Small nodules (defined as ...Read more

Your endocrinologist will review your thyroid images and your thyroid laboratory data, but not until she/he takes your history, does a physical exam, and reviews your lab data.
There are many treatment options from doing nothing to surgery on your thyroid.
Thyroid issues are common but the success and control rate is quite high.
You should be fine. ...Read more
Thyroid gland demostrates mild heterogeneous echogenicity & echotexture. Increased vascularity, in keeping with thyroiditis. Pls explain. Thanks.?
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

Severe hypo/hyper sx for the past month, can barely function. TSH, Free T4, T3 normal. Thyroid nodule FNA biopsy 2008 was ok. PET scan 2013 showed Hypermetabolic nodule. U/S showed mild heterogeneous thyroid. Can Hashimoto's be cause of my sx?
Maybe: You need a comprehensive evaluation, might not be your thyroid, kindly see your doctor again or seek a second opinion, good luck ...Read more
Us shows thyroid w mild heterogenous echo pattern and posterior to the inferior aspect of right lobe a parathyroid cyst. What does this all mean?
What does heterogeneous echotexture of parenchyma representing chronic hepatic parenchymal disease mean?
U/s thyroid shows homogeneous parenchyma on left and right no mass or nodule what does this mean? So what is homogeneous parenchyma?
Good!: Homogeneous parenchyma is just a fancy way for the person reading the report to say the thyroid appears to be similar in texture and color throughout the entire thyroid. This is a good thing as it implies a uniform thyroid without areas of irregularity or inflammation and most people reading these reports will tend to err on the side of caution & at least say there is some irregularity. Good Luck! ...Read more
Possible thyroiditis: The normal thyroid has a uniform rather echogenic echo texture. If the echo texture is lower and heterogeneous, thyroiditis is possible. There are several forms, most often autoimmune. This can cause either increased or decreased thyroid hormone production. You should discuss thyroid blood tests with your doctor. Tsh test can be helpful. Any suspicious nodules should be sampled as well. ...Read more

Hello, This phrase was on my ultrasound report (just done)"There is diffuse homogeneity of the thyroid parenchyma." What does this mean? An old ultrasound report from 07 said " Both thyroid lobes are homogeneous in echotexture. '
It means: It is normal.Get a more detailed answer ›
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
