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

Thyroid: A heterogeneous, normal sized thyroid may not mean much, or it could indicate one of a number of inflammatory/infiltrative processes i.e. thyroiditis. Sometimes symptoms may not be noticed. The thyroid US findings must be interpreted in conjunction with lab values/thyroid function tests, symptoms, and clinical findings to assess the significance, so best bet is to discuss with your doc. ...Read more

I have done USGthyroid. Normal thyroid and isthumus show diffusely altered heterogeneous echotexture. Vascularity present. No lesion nor calcification.
Thyroid function?: Hi. What prompted the thyroid ultrasound? Sounds like no nodule, so thyroid cancer is not the issue here. Heterogeneous echo texture is non-specific, but certainly can be seen in Hashimoto's. Do you have normal thyroid function? Even if so, you could check TPO & thyroglobulin antibodies to see if there's evidence of autoimmune thyroiditis. Good luck! ...Read more
Thyroid labs in normal range, u/s showed several small cysts and mildly heterogeneous echotexture but been having many symptoms, runs in fam, c a endo?
What tests?: You may have normal TSH and free t 4 but still have anti thyroid antibodies. That would be called euthyroid hashimotos. So "normal" thyroid test doesn't tell whole story. ...Read more
What causes this finding on u/s "thyroid demonstrating mild heterogeneous echotexture of the parenchyma" -- my dr said it was "fine". My TSH is normal?
Possibilities: It means your thyroid is not as smooth as it should be. This could be normal or indicates autoimmune thyroid disease. Since your TSH is normal then no hurry but on the next blood test ask your doc to also check your thyroid antibodies. ...Read more
I have a normal TSH and heterogeneous echotexture. Enlarged thyroid gland which I was told not to worry nothings wrong with my thyroid. Any advice?
Can you explain this statement? : The thyroid gland demonstrates heterogenous echotexture without a discrete mass or
Thyroid ultrasound: Your thyroid ultrasound was ordered by your doctor to evaluate an abnormal thyroid gland. Generally, we are looking for nodules or masses of concern. Happily no masses were seen. Heterogeneity is the characteristic of your gland showing variations in water content which would be expected findings in glands that are swollen or inflamed. ...Read more

Should a vague 3mm nodule in the inferior left lobe (heterogeneously in echotexture) of the thyroid be biopsied? Should I worry about this?
What does heterogeneous echotexture of parenchyma representing chronic hepatic parenchymal disease mean?
What does Heterogeneous echotexture of the liver mean? My ulta sound also said for liver no mass and normal size.
It means that: The liver texture is not uniform. Most commonly this is due to fatty infiltration, a benign condition with numerous causes. It can also be due to various other inflammatory or infiltrative processes. It is a nonspecific finding, so it has to be interpreted in the context of your clinical picture and lab values. Talk to your doctor about the significance in your particular case. ...Read more
Mixed echogenicity: Thyromegaly means enlarge ment of thyroid gland. Heterogeneous means irregular texture, not same echogenicity throughout gland. No large discrete nodules are seen. Therapy is determined by evaluation that includes thyroid function tests. ...Read more
