Ultrasound Of Thyroid Shows
An ultrasound of my thyroid showed enlargement and cysts on both sides, I have all the symptoms of hypothyroidism but my blood tests were normal ?
No surprise: Symtoms of hypothyroidism are nonspecific, with normal T4 T3 (liothyronine) TSH ruling out thyroid as cause. Look for another cause for your symptoms. Nodules are extremely common and if the imaging is not concerning for cancer, you should relax. Nodules do not cause hypothyroidism. Stay proactive and good luck ...Read more
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
The ultrasound of the thyroid showed enlarged lymph nodes near neck area. What could this possibly be?
Hard to say.: It depends on how large the lymph nodes are, whether or not they are tender and how long they have been present. Tender, enlarged lymph nodes can be seen with viral or bacterial infections or inflammation. Non-tender enlarged nodes which don't go away after a month or two should be further investigated with MRI or ct and possible needle biopsy as they could indicate a more serious problem. ...Read more
Thyroid ultrasound shows heterogenous hypervascular echogenicity. No nodules. Thyroid labs were normal. Any ideas on what this is?
What thyoid labs?: There are many thyroid labs and most docs do not check enough of them? This ultrasound is consistent with grave's disease and thyroiditis. With grave's standard thyroid tests would usually be abnormal but might look ok with thyroiditis. Please make sure anti-thyroid antibodies (anti-tpo and anti-thyroglobulin) have been checked, as well as free t3 (liothyronine) and reverse t3 (liothyronine). ...Read more

Thyroid ultrasound show mild diffused parenchymal hyper vasuclarity.3mm hyperechoic nodule in the lateral aspect in the left lobe thyroid normal > tsh?
Possibly thyroiditis: Hypervascularity is a typical finding in people with underlying autoimmune thyroiditis (hashimoto's or graves disease). The 3 mm nodule is likely of no significance and can be watched. You need to know your TSH level. Getting thyroid antibodies (thyroid peroxidase, thyroglobulin antibodies) would be helpful in making a diagnosis. ...Read more

Multinodular thyroid: The most common cause of your ultrasound finding is a multinodular goiter. Majority of time these are benign and the thyroid will have normal function. It is actually more of a concern for cancer when the thyroid only has 1 or 2 solid nodules, not dozen of smaller ones. A thyroid biopsy is a simple test to sample suspicious nodules. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
