What does multiple hypoechoic focus nodules mean on my thyroid? What is parenchymal inhomogeneity?
Varying appearance: Inhomogeneous means areas of different echogenicity or density rather than homogeneous where entire gland has same density. Hypoechoic means areas with decreased density or less echoes which often are cystic. As long as any nodular areas are not larger than 1 cm in diameter they usually do not require biopsy. ...Read more
Picture descriptor: WELL-DEFINED means the borders are sharply seen on the picture. Complex means that there is stuff (echoes) inside the cyst or nodule. The echoes are not as bright as the echoes outside the nodule (hypoechoic). What this means depends on why the ultrasound was originally ordered and what part of the body was scanned. Talk to the doctor who ordered the test. Good luck. ...Read more

What does "very hypoechoic nodules with increased vascularity" mean? Is that indicative of cancer? Nodules are not 1cm. The larger one is 0.40cm x 19cm
Nodule: Hypoechoic generally means that the lesion is more likely to be cystic (contains fluid), however, increased vascularity is concerning. Depending on the history, location and presence of other symptoms fine needle aspiration for cytological analysis or a biopsy should be considered. Watch for alternative points of view from other physicians ...Read more

How was it described in the report? It could need no follow-up, short interval followup, more imaging, or biopsy. Simply not enough info. ...Read more

FNA is one such technique for obtaining a biopsy for making a diagnosis. ...Read more
I had a sonogram of my thyroid. I have 9 nodules/cyst. 2 solid hypoechoic heterogeneous nodules. What does this mean? Cancer?
Common problem: Nodules of the thyroid are common, especially in women. Most thyroid nodules are benign. "solid", "hypoechoic", "heterogeneous" nodules are the most common ones seen. If they are large enough (at least 1 cm), we typically recommend doing a fine needle biopsy to make sure they are benign. ...Read more
