I'm new here and wondered if anyone has any thoughts of the results of my ultrasound.
The right lobe measures 4.3 x 1.2cm. Left lobe measures 4.5 x 1.5cm. The isthmus is thickened at 0.6cm. The thyroid parenchyma is diffusely heterogeneous in echo-texture. There is an isoechoic solid nodule seen in the isthmus, cetered at the right of the midline measuring 2x1.4x 0.7cm. A hyperechoic solid nodule seen in the lower pole of the right lobe measuring 0.4cm maximally. No additional discrete nodules or cysts identified. There is no convincing concerning microcalcification nor focally increased vascularity.
Any one who can help with what this means would be greatly appreciated.View Thread
