Had thyroid us. I felt a constant lump in throat.Have "complex hypoechoic nodule(solid mass) 3.9x1.5x1.1cm (l) & 4.5x1.5x1.4cm (r)." can it be cancer?

Possible: Nodules that size although most often not cancer need to be evaluated further. Bilateral or multiple nodules are more likely to be benign. Next step should be fine needle biopsies (fna). This is just what it sounds like- a small needle placed into the nodule to obtain some cells for pathology. If benign, can leave alone. But if having symptoms simply from size of nodule might still need surgery. ...Read more

Needs to see the report /discuss with the radiologist, and exam you to see if your symptoms are thyroid related, and consider thyroid function studies. ...Read more

Your nodule: Is fairly small, and many physicians wouldn't even biopsy it unless it enlarged or there were other factors noted on ultrasound or lab. If your blood levels are normal, don't worry about the left lobe. Check w/your doctor. ...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
