What Does Calcified Rim Nodule Mean
US shows Multinodular thyroid (.6 cm, .4 cm)goiter but predominate solid nodule is 3.2cm has new calcific and increased vascularity what does this mean?
Needs further workup: Any nodule over 1cm should undergo at the very minimum a fine needle aspiration biopsy. A recommendation may also be made to bypass the needle biopsy and proceed to thyroidectomy given the new calcifications which place the nodule in a higher risk category.

Please explain what these CT findings mean and thank you so much ahead of time. Pleural based nodule in right upper chest size-2x6mm. A slightly asymmetric biapical plueroparenchymal scarring. Also small calcific densities measuring 3.5 mm in the right l

Biapical pleural parenchymal scarring is very common, but may also be followed. Calcific densities r likely ok. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

"eggshell" calcification, where there is a thin calcific rim around the the nodule is not associated with an increased risk of cancer, while "microcalcifications" inside the nodule are associated with a much higher risk of cancer, 50-100%, compared to 5% for nodules in general. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
