What Does Increased Vascularity In Thyroid Mean
What does predominantly solid isoechoic mass with sites of cyst and increased vascularity measuring 5.5 x4.5x3.6 in thyroid mean?
Bilateral thyroid lobes are enlarged and show diffuse heterogeneous echotexture with increased vascularity. What does that mean?
Thyroid: What have your doctors said about this. There are many options that include surgery or doing nothing. You can rely on your doctors for your management. If your thyroid levels are OK and your thyroid gland is not very enlarged it would be OK to have nothing done aside from regular examination. ...Read more
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. Discuss these and other options with your primary care physician and/or specialist. ...Read more
I have a thyroid nodule.A scan revealed that it is solid with irregular borders, and I have increased vascularity, what does this mean?
Have thyroid nodule 20 yrs with many U/S and FNA but U/S now shows scattered echogenic foci-calcify with increased vascularity - what does this mean?
Consistency: A lot depends on what has happened to this nodule over the last 20 yr. Any growth? Is the calcification new? The best scenario is where the US and FNA are all being done by the same person; sometimes the "reports" say different things when it is really not changed. Often the best person is an Endocrinologist who does this, rather than a radiologist who is not a thyroid specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
It depends.: If the study is referring to a thyroid nodule this can be somewhat more suspicious for thyroid cancer, but a biopsy always has to be done to see whether it is it not. If you already have thyroid cancer and have been treated and there is a lesion in the thyroid bed or elsewhere this is suspicious for recurrence, but once again frequently a biopsy is needed to confirm. ...Read more
