What Does A Malignant Thyroid Nodule Look Like On Ultrasound

Thyroid nodule: Thyroid cysts can certainly come/go. The quality of ultrasounds, the interpretation, and the definition of a "nodule" can vary. Hashimoto's can cause a patchy pattern that can look like a nodule. Certainly a small nodule that is so transient is not something to worry about. An endocrinologist should be able to interpret things. ...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.

It depends: There are many factors which affect a given nodule's risk of being a thyroid cancer. These include size, and other features visible on us (ultrasound) and patient age. Because women have many more being benign thyroid nodules than men, the risk for any one nodule is higher in a man. For a typical 1-2 centimeter (1/2-3/4 inch), that risk might be about 4% in a woman, or about 8% in a man. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
