LIVER LESION EVAL: A Liver Lesion identified on ultrasound needs to be followed closely. You need to have LABS monitered and evaluation for hepatitis. A repeat Ultrasound or potentially Abdominal MRI may be needed. Also Consult with a GI specialist, to insure that a biopsy is not warranted.

Liver (Definition)

This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more

Are hypoechoic nodules in the liver cancerous (left lobe and right lobe, with peripheral and internal vascularity)? Doc said they are "abnormal".

Are hypoechoic nodules in the liver cancerous (left lobe and right lobe, with peripheral and internal vascularity)? Doc said they are "abnormal".

Not necessarily: Hypoechoic means a solid nodule, rather than a liquid-filled nodule which would be a cyst. So hypoechoic liver nodules could be many things, including something called focal nodular hyperplasia, which is not cancer. Your doc may recommend more tests, or a biopsy. Cancer is on the list of possibilities, but it's not time to worry. It's likely to be benign given your age and health!

None: You cannot make a diagnosis from that information. It is likely a benign cyst, but it could be something else. A biopsy is required to make the diagnosis.

Us shows hypoechoic & hypovascular rt liver lobe nodule 1.7 x 1.6 x 2.2cm; however; no corresponding abnormality on the ct. Liver enzymes normal. No liver disease. What could this be?

Us shows hypoechoic & hypovascular rt liver lobe nodule 1.7 x 1.6 x 2.2cm; however; no corresponding abnormality on the ct. Liver enzymes normal. No liver disease. What could this be?

Hypoeheic lesion: Hypoeheic ; hypo vascular lesion on us but with normal ct, lfts; no liver disease, shows technical us artifact. However hypo echoic lesions can be abscess, angioma, adenoma or mets from other organ, considered. Please see a gastroenterologist for good history and thorough physical examination and further work to address your concern. Thanks.

Is it normal to have an Wall hypoechoic nodule at the lower zone of the superficial lobe right parotid measures 6.6×4.4 mm?

Is it normal to have an Wall hypoechoic nodule at the lower zone of the superficial lobe right parotid measures 6.6×4.4 mm?

Normal parotid gland: Will not have any nodules, most common nodules are benign few are malignant, most common tumor of parotis is benign mixed tumor (pleomorpheicadenoma) Just see your doctor and follow the advise.

What does 2 centimeter hypoechoic/cystic nodules with internal echogenicity in the midpole of the left lobe. Larger module meaures 7mm?

It would be better: If you said where these findings were. It almost sounds like the thyroid. If so cysts in the thyroid may be colloid cysts and they look like cysts with internal echoes or old blood etc. Therefore please specify where you have these findings

Is it okay to wait for 6 mounths to see if the Wall hypoechoic nodule atthe lower zone of the superficial lobe right parotid6.6×4.4mmwill grow or not?

Is it okay to wait for 6 mounths to see if the Wall hypoechoic nodule atthe lower zone of the superficial lobe right parotid6.6×4.4mmwill grow or not?

Probably ok: Just make sure to check with the doctor that ordered the test. If they are unsure, consider a consultation with an ENT doctor that deals with parotid disease. Not all of them do. Hope this helps!

Please explain "left lobe of thyroid is 4.6x1.9x1.5cm & contains 9mm hypoechoic nodule at lower pole w/ small cystic component" mildly complicated. TY?

FNA not essential: As the nodule is less than 1 cm. FNA biopsy is not essential in most cases. But if any risk factors like history of radiation to head or neck or family history of thyroid cancer then need to follow up more closely by ultrasound and may also consider FNA biopsy

There are 3non-shadowing echogenic nodules in the right lobe of the liver located within segment 6/7 witch measure 23x27x30, 25x23x23, and 9x11x11 mm?

There are 3non-shadowing echogenic nodules in the right lobe of the liver located within segment 6/7 witch measure 23x27x30, 25x23x23, and 9x11x11 mm?

Need more imaging: Liver lesions may be due to multiple causes - most are benign but some can be caused by non_benign causes such as tumor or infection. I suggest you see a gastroenterologist.

My left thyroid lobe is slightly enlarged and I have a vascular hypoechoic nodule measuring 5x4x3mm?

My left thyroid lobe is slightly enlarged and I have a vascular hypoechoic nodule measuring 5x4x3mm?

Just follow it: This sounds like something you just watch and see if anything changes. Most often there maybe a new one over the year. Goiters are like that. Small nodular findings are common. Would not worry about it but don't forget about it. It is at this time something to remember it's there. Talk to your doctor

Us results show 2 "hypoechoic solid nodules" on in each lobe of the thyroid. Should these be biopsied? Who decides that?

Depends...: Depends upon the size and other factors. In general, it is better to be safe and proceed with the biopsy plus appropriate blood tests. Discuss w/your doctor and see an endocrinologist if appropriate or want a second opinion.
