12x10x9mm heterogeneous nodule isoechoic

what is that?

A growth: I assume this is a thyroid nodule which basically mean you have a growth on the thyroid. It's very common and not a cause for concern as long as you follow it again in the future to make sure if it's not growing. Biopsy of the nodule will help determine if it's benign or cancerous. The risk of cancer is very low, approx 5%. ...Read more

Is it poss. Cancer? Us results thyroid nodule:  solid, heterogeneous &  isoechoic nodule w/in the mid to lower right lobe, 4.2cm, increas. Vascularity

Yes it's possible : Any thyroid nodule over 4 cm needs to be removed surgically to make sure not cancerous per ata guidelines. I would still get a fna first before going to surgery but needs to be removed. More info on my website on thyroid nodules at www.Cvsurgicalgroup.Com. ...Read more

What is a innocuous and isoechoic thyroid nodule. Also what is a heterogenous nodule with tiny cystic spaces, it measures 0.7cm?

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 more

What is a heterogeneous natured cyst and should I be worried that it's grown in size?

What is a heterogeneous natured cyst and should I be worried that it's grown in size?

Yeah, a concern: Regular structures are generally not problems. Uniform and regular fluid filled sacs can be due to many reasons. Cancer or infection are not likely to be included. If, however, the sac is irregular, then infection or cancer are not impossible.
Otherwise depends on the location. Even a cyst inside the skull can be fatal due to pressure on the brain. A heterogeneous cyst on the back of the hand less ...Read more

What does it mean to have a myometrium is heterogeneous demonstrates without a focal lesion?

What does it mean to have a myometrium is heterogeneous demonstrates without a focal lesion?

Heterogeneous: Heterogeneous myometrium means that the texture of the myometrium is not the same across the length of it. It is probably OK if no discrete lesion is seen. If there are symptoms that cannot be explained by it, it may be reasonable to have a follow up ultrasound in 3 months to see if there has been a change in the appearance. ...Read more

What does this mean??

1. The isthmus appears thickening measuring 0.4 cm, unchanged.  
 
2. The right lobe is heterogeneous and enlarged measuring 5.

More info needed: More background needed as to why the test was done and what symptoms you are having but without knowing anything else, it sounds like you may have a goitre which is an enlarged overactive thyroid gland. However there are other organs in the body that this could be referring to, so as I said. More info is needed to give you a definite answer ...Read more

Are isoechoic and hypoecoic nodules and cysts cancerous?

Are isoechoic and hypoecoic nodules and cysts cancerous?

Are you referring: to breast ultrasound? Simple cysts are benign, cysts with solid components are more suspicious. Isoechoic and hypoechoic masses can be benign or malignant. The probability of malignancy depends on other ultrasound features. Some need biopsy, some can be followed or ignored. ...Read more

What is an isoechoic cystic structure? Indicative of malignancy?

No, only descriptive: of appearance on US: isoechoic=uniform (iso=equal, uniform echos) in ultrasound reflections, cystic=fluid filled. Neither of these indicate cancer. Cancer would far more likely be solid, not cystic & have varying, not uniform ultrasound reflections from within the cancerous tissue(s). ...Read more
