What Is A Circumscribed Thyroid Nodule Exactly
Fewer echoes on US: Hypoechoic describes the appearance of a nodule on ultrasound (us). It refers to a nodule that reflects back fewer sound waves compared to the normal thyroid tissue around it. While most thyroid cancers are hypoechoic, most hypoechoic nodules are not cancers. But a hypoechoic nodule may have a slightly higher risk of being a cancer than other nodules. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Decreased echoes: Ultrasound exam of thyroid gland can show nodules of decreased echogenicity (hypo dense or hypo echoic)), increased echogenicity (hyper dense or hyper echoic) or mixed with areas of both imaging qualities. Hypodense has usually more consistency of fluid like cyst and hyper dense more like solid tumor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Thyroid with masses: Goiter usually means an enlarged thyroid gland, but can also refer a normal-sized gland with nodules or masses within it. Thyroid nodules are areas within the gland that stick out from the gland and can be felt when pressing on the neck, or may be areas that appear different from the normal gland on imaging tests like ultrasound or cat scans. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Large thyroid lumps: A 'goiter' refers to an enlarged thyroid gland. A multi-nodular goiter is usually diagnosed on an ultrasound scan when many lumps or 'nodules' are seen. Typically these are benign. 3 things to consider for nodular goiter: 1) big enough overall to cause problems with swallowing, voice, or breathing? 2) do nodules over-produce thyroid hormone? 3) are any of the larger or irregular nodules cancer? ...Read more
A benign tumor: Adeno- is a medical prefix indicating glandular tissue. A benign tumor arising within a gland is called an adenoma; a malignant, or cancerous, tumor would be an adenocarcinoma. So a thyroid adenoma would be a benign tumor arising in the thyroid gland. Even though it's considered benign, it can cause problems by making it hard to swallow, or making too much thyroid hormone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
For thyroid gland is boarderline enlarged. Right has single nodule likely adenoma. What does this mean?
Probably benign : Many thyroid glands are enlarged, and borderline means just slightly above normal size. The only way to tell if a thyroid nodule is benign or cancerous is with a biopsy. While some other tests may suggest it is benign the biopsy is the best way to tell. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Needle aspiration: Determination of solid thyroid nodules' true nature requires a fine needle aspiration. Most biopsies are benign.

Small nodule.: When something is echogenic, it's brighter than the adjacent tissues or the background tissue of the organ. Technically it should be termed "hyperechoic" but "echogenic" is more commonly used.. It also means that it's more likely (not always) solid than fluid. A "nodule" is small, usually less than 2 cm in size. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is a innocuous and isoechoic thyroid nodule.
Also what is a heterogenous nodule with tiny cystic spaces, it measures 0.7cm?
Hard to say: It's hard to say without seeing the actual images. An isoechoic nodule is typically nonspecific and potentially falls in the indeterminate range (ie need follow up or biopsy). Same thing for a heterogenous "nodule" with tiny cystic spaces. A "complex cyst" with tiny cystic spaces can be a sponge like cyst that is typically benign. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Irritation: This is caused by repetitive irritation of the skin area leading to excessive scarring -thus the bump or nodule. In the early stage, it may go away by itself once the scratching is stopped. At a later stage, injecting a cortisone into the lesion may cause it to resolve. In the chronic stage, it is nearly impossible to get rid of it. ...Read more
