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?
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

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
