What Is A Heterogeneous Isoechoic Mass On The Thyroid
Within the endometrial cavity there is a heterogeneous isoechoic mass identified measuring approximately 1.4 CM in largest diameter. Is this bad?
Probably not: At your age, I would repeat the ultrasound after your next cycle. ...Read more
Should I worry about a mass which is 22mm by 16mm when the thyroid is normal. The mass has grown by 4 mm in 6months. And have a new heterogeneous nodul?
Biopsy: If your nodules have grown that much they need to be biopsied. You also should be on replacement brand name T4 to reduce the stimulation to thyroid and nodule enlargement. If you had half your thyroid removed because it was having trouble and forming nodules, removal of one half of it only made your thyroid's job more difficult and problem with accelerate without replacement. ...Read more
I have a 6mm mass in my left thyroid love and it's considered diffuse heterogeneous. What does this mean?
Nonspecific: A 6 mm thyroid nodule is small. We usually do not worry about nodules under 10 mm. A diffusely heterogeneous thyroid is commonly seen in patients with hashimoto's thyroiditis. This is an autoimmune disorder that can result in an underactive thyroid. You list being on immunosuppressive therapy. If you have one autoimmune disorder, you are at higher risk for another. ...Read more
2.5mm heterogeneous hypoechoic nodule and ovoid isoechoic bilobed mass with hypoechoicc band through it which may be fluid. The mass measures 22mm long?
It would help: To know what organ we are talking about. In the breast these findings have one meaning, in the liver another. So it would be very helpful to know where we are going ...Read more
What does predominantly solid isoechoic mass with sites of cyst and increased vascularity measuring 5.5 x4.5x3.6 in thyroid mean?
Mm?: Hi. I hate to assume, but I assume this is a small nodule 5.5x4.5x3.6 mm? (not cm? That would be a BIG nodule). A nodule that small (in mm) would be too small to do a fine needle aspiration biopsy on. Are your TSH and free T4 normal? If so, I would say do another thyroid ultrasound in a year or so to see if it's growing. ...Read more
My 12 yo's thyroid sono came back w/3 nodule- each >1cm: 1)slightly hypoechoic heterogeneous, 2)heterogeneously isoechoic w/internal vascularity 3) hetergenously hypoechoic w/in gland. How bad is it?
Probably not: This most likely represents benign findings but one of the nodules should be biopsied. ...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
My thyroid is underactive. My ultrasound showed diffusely heterogeneous echo pattern, diffusely heterogeneous hypervascular thyroid gland, no thyroid enlargement, no evidence of focal abnormality, no evidence of cyst, mass or calcification. I have been pu
Hashimoto's disease: It sounds like you might have Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Consider a consultation with an endocrinologist. ...Read more
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
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
Small thyroid, heterogenous in echotexture. No mass.? small nodularity inferior lobe. RT nodule or heterogeneity gland. Need interpretation
May need follow up: The provider who ordered the study should have been able to explain the findings to you and whether or not you need any follow up. There is a possibillity you may need a follow up test that looks at whether the areas of nodularity are active hormone producing tissue or whether they are cold spots in the thyroid. Cold spots often have to be looked at in more detail. ...Read more
Parotid mass 7.5 x 4mm heterogeneous, mulitple lymph nodes in right neck largest 8.5 mm short axis, homogeneous. What does this mean. Pain in face on r?
This is serious: If this was me, it would get biopsied without delay. ...Read more
Not sure what mean: Cysts within the thyroid contain fluid, typically colloid, sometimes blood. Colloid can be very thick (looks like motor oil). The viscosity has more to do with how long it has been there rather than to whether it is worrisome or not. ...Read more
Can a mass on the thyroid be spread to the right lobe? Because I found out that there is a solid nodule on the right lobe of the thyroid
It can: As there are types of cancer that can readily spread locally even in the thyroid. Realize it's also possible to multiple thyroid nodule on both sides without any cancer too. It sounds like you need to review this with your doctor and possibly have a thyroid ultrasound completed to visualize the area. ...Read more
I have a reactive node on my CT scan and a 2.8x2.8 CM mass on the thyroid. What does reactive mean?
D/w doctor: Reactive lymph nodes are usually due to exposure to cold virus or some type of infection and generally resolve. Question is where is the lymph node and how big is it. More concerning is mass in the thyroid which is a large size and should be evaluated by endocrinologist to see if needs a biopsy. ...Read more
Mass: Please clarify your question. Where is the mass? ...Read more
Need more info..: Where is it located? What is the size? There are many things that are "heterogeneous" from benign lipomas, to benign thyroid nodules, to benign ovarian lesions, etc, etc. Need much more clinical information to try to guess what this ccould be. Your doctor who requested the evaluation would be best to ask this question to. ...Read more
Graves/Thyroiditis: Most commonly this is due to graves disease or thyroiditis. In both of these cases your immune system attacks your thyroid and tries to kill it, because it thinks it is foreign, like a virus. However in graves disease the antibodies that attack the thyroid actually stimulate receptors that make it grow and produce too much thyroid hormone. In thyroiditis the immune cells infiltrate the thyroid. ...Read more
Thyroid Nodules: Thyroid nodules are solid or fluid-filled lumps that form within your thyroid, a small gland located at the base of your neck, just above your breastbone. The great majority of thyroid nodules aren't serious and don't cause symptoms. Thyroid cancer accounts for a small percentage of thyroid lesions. The "chocolate" part refers to blood in the nodule. Your pathologist can tell if there is a tumor. ...Read more
It means: Increased blood flow to the thyroid. It may be a sign of thyroiditis in the setting of a heterogeneous gland. ...Read more
Thyroid nodule: Thyroid nodules are very common especially among women my impression is your doctor suspected something in your thyroid and ordered the ultrasound because it is generally not possible to feel that small a nodule this size nodules are generally not amenable to biopsy if there is no family history of cancer thyroid and u have not had radiation to the neck it can be followed with another ultrasound. ...Read more
Thyroid US results: It is hard to interpret a thyroid ultrasound, especially online. Your profile says "hypothyroid and raised antibodies". This could mean Hashimotos, and the US is consistent with that. A 12 mm nodules is small, and could be consistent with the scarring in a Hashimotos gland, but this requires review by an Endocrinologist. ...Read more
Nodules: Hi. No, not from how you describe it. We fine needle biopsy nodules to see if they're cancer. Diffuse heterogeneity in the gland is often seen in Hashimoto's (which can be diagnosed with thyroid autoantibodies; needle biopsy not indicated. Talk with your doctor. He/she will recommend next step (s). Good luck! ...Read more
Need more info?:
Why did you have your Thyroid checked in the first place? We advise people not to do a test unless it is clearly indicated, i.e you are looking for a cause for a symptom or medical complaint. Otherwise we end up finding things (like your report) which may not matter, yet provoke much unnecessary anxiety.
Your Thyroid gland is fine....it is normal report. Your doctor should have already told you so. ...Read more
