My wife had a thyroid ultrasound and showed heterogenous echogenicity, hypervascular thyroid gland. No masses or nodules. Any thoughts on what this is?

Could be Hashimoto's. Is the gland normal is size or enlarged? If normal-sized, could be hashimoto's. If enlarged it could be grave's disease, both of which are autoimmune diseases. She should find out if she's hypo- or hyperthyroid and have additional testing to see if she has hashimoto's. Read more...

Hello I recently found a lump on my neck I went for ultra sound and it confermed a thyroid nodule size 2cm by 3 CM non cystic and hypervascular?

Biopsy. Hi. Assuming your thyroid function is normal (not hyperthyroid), the thyroid nodule you describe needs fine needle aspiration biopsy for cytology (and hopefully genetic testing) to see if it's cancer. If it's not cancer, you can leave it in and just follow it, and thus avoid surgery for a non-cancerous tumor. I have to assume that whoever ordered the ultrasound has told you that you need FNAB.
