What Does Thyroid Ultrasound Show
Thyroid cancer: Hello. Unfortunately cancer of the thyroid will not show up on an ultrasound. A nodule or a growth in the thyroid can be seen and identified. A tissue or needle biopsy is needed to examine the cells for cancer. An excisional biopsy if needed will provide the pathologist the entire gland which then will be examined and a diagnosis rendered. ...Read more
The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs.

Multinodular thyroid: The most common cause of your ultrasound finding is a multinodular goiter. Majority of time these are benign and the thyroid will have normal function. It is actually more of a concern for cancer when the thyroid only has 1 or 2 solid nodules, not dozen of smaller ones.
