What Does Increased Vascularity 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
What does predominantly solid isoechoic mass with sites of cyst and increased vascularity measuring 5.5 x4.5x3.6 in thyroid 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. 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?
What does the following mean: Heterogeneous nodular of the thyroid gland with increased vascularity. As well as low T4 and TSH levels?
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
No: A cancer more likely to express as a nodule, rather than a diffuse change in the gland. Consult this site for more information on this topic. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/thyroid-cancer/basics/symptoms/CON-20043551 For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...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
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
Presence of hypoechoic area in hyperechoic thyroid nodule.. What it indicates? Nodule has increased vascularity
Uncertain: There are various characteristics of thyroid nodules on ultrasound, including hyperechoic, hypoechoic, isoechoic, cystic, complex, vascular, calcified, microcalcifications. Unfortunately, none of them can tell you for sure whether the nodule is benign or malignant. In your age group, we would be recommending biopsy of the nodule if it is 1 cm in size or larger. ...Read more
What may be a possible cause of increased peripheral vascularity around a 1cm slightly hypoechoic thyroid nodule?
I have a 4.2cm solid mass left thyroid homogeneous echotexture increased echogenicity and increased vascularity by us coold this be malignant?
Diffusely heterogeneous thyroid gland with multiple bilateral hypo echoic micro nodules. Increased vascularity.
What does this ultra sound result mea?
Thyroidologist: A thyroidologist or endocrinologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you about your thyroid status and ultrasound findings and to determine whether a needle biopsy and/or referral to a thyroid surgeon is advisable. As a rule multiple nodules are more apt to be benign as opposed to a single cold nodule in males. Follow-up in these cases are also important even after the first consultation. ...Read more
Thyroid gland demostrates mild heterogeneous echogenicity & echotexture. Increased vascularity, in keeping with thyroiditis. Pls explain. Thanks. ?
Hashimoto's disease?: Common cause of ultrasound pattern with hyperemia is Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Can initially be hyperthyroid and eventually becomes hypothyroid. Usually an autoimmune disease with thyroid antibodies, When hypothyroid usually have to have thyroid hormone suppliments. ...Read more
What does 'Heterogeneous thyroid glands bilaterally with diffusely increase vascularity' mean? And also what is a 'hypertrophied parathyroid gland'?
Endocrinologist: It means that there is abnormal enlargement of the thyroid gland,which has three zones,symmetrically. An enlargement of a parathyroid gland is called hyperplasia. These findings are abnormal and are considered a multiglandular problem which requires the evaluation and treatment advice from an endocrinologist. ...Read more
Thyroid gland is increased in vascularity suggestive of underlying thyroiditis.....
Tsh is normal?
Happens regularly: This picture is encountered relatively often. Think of it as if the thyroid is inflamed but still has enough reserve to produce adequate hormone. It can be seen in conditions like subclinical thyroiditis or in hashimoto's disease, after the thyroid is "burnt out" and doesn't produce elevated hormone, but before the hormone levels become low. See an endocrinologist for more information. ...Read more
FNA predominant solid thyroid nodule with new calcify and increased vascularity is indeterminate-now sent to Afirma for GEC How accurate is this test?
Accurate if negative: It now appears that Afirma test result is clinically useful if it comes back as negative. I believe that the test may be associated with a higher false-positive results than false-negative results. Please check with your endocrinologist for an update. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thyroid U/S showed L thyroid gland heterogeneous hypoechoic nodule w/ mind internal vascularity. what does all this mean? FNA recommended.
Means abnormal test: Ultrasound is a commonly used test for detection of Throid nodules which are quite common. So when the ultrasound shows a Thyroid nodule, it needs to be monitored and often a Biopsy is required to find out if the nodule is benign or cancerous. FNA is one such technique for obtaining a biopsy for making a diagnosis. ...Read more
