Bilateral thyroid lobes are enlarged and show diffuse heterogeneous echotexture with increased vascularity. What does that mean?

Bilateral thyroid lobes are enlarged and show diffuse heterogeneous echotexture with increased vascularity.  What does that mean?

Thyroid: 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

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

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

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 ...Read more

Thyroid gland appears borderline small in size.Small 3x2x3 mm hypoechoic nodule of mid right thyroid lobe with some mild associated vascularity?

Common: Thyroid nodules are common. Your nodule is still very small. Nothing needs to be done right now. I recommend another ultrasound one year from now to monitor for size changes. ...Read more

1.5x0.6x1.1.1cm ill defined heterogeneous hypoechoic area w/internal vascularity no calcification found on heterogeneous right thyroid lobe. Explain?

1.5x0.6x1.1.1cm ill defined heterogeneous hypoechoic area w/internal vascularity no calcification found on heterogeneous right thyroid lobe. Explain?

Thyroid nodule: You need to see your endocrinologist for interpretation of this. A 1.5 cm thyroid nodule probably should be biopsied, although the likeihood of this being cancer is low (probably less than 10%). A nodule among a multinodular gland is less of a concern, as is a nodule in a hashimotos gland. All this needs to be examined. ...Read more

I have a 1.6cm single vascular nodule right lobe of thyroid. It is 16x15x7mm, hypoechogenic,curcumscribed, front of neck has pain. T4 low biopsy?

I have a 1.6cm single vascular nodule right lobe of thyroid.  It is 16x15x7mm, hypoechogenic,curcumscribed, front of neck has pain.  T4 low  biopsy?

FNA biopsy: Hi. TSH would be more useful than a T4, but I can surmise it's NOT a hyper functioning nodule from the low T4, and hyper functioning nodules are the only ones at no risk of being cancer. You need a fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy with gene testing. Let me guess...that's what your doc told you! She/he is right! Get it done. They're not bad at all ( know it seems creepy!). Odds are in your favor ...Read more
