thryoid ultrasound help please

I had gone for an ultrasound quick a bit ago. I was wondering if someone could help me interepret the results.

History: patient is hypothryoid with elevated calcium levels.
the right lobe of the thryoid measures 4.8x2x2.3 cm and the left 4.3x1.6x1.7 cm. Both lobes are heterogenous without dicrete mass, calcification nor is there evidence of abnormal lymph nodes. There are scattered lymph nodes seen inferioloy to both lobes. There is a 1.1*0.8*0.5cm probably lymph node on the left infeirior while ther eis a 1.1*0.3*0.3 cm oval mass seen posteriour to the superior aspect.
Conclusion: thryoiditis without focal mass. Questionable lymph nodes versus parathyroid on the left. Nuclear meidince and/or ct may be of value.

What exactly does this all mean. I had my daughter in 2010. This was done a year after that. I am also on levo 125. My endo thinks i should leave it but I'm not sure what I should do. Not sure if anyone has any thoughts. Thanks

Hi there!

The report describes a normal thyroid gland with enlarged surrounding lymphnodes suggestive of inflammation/ thyroiditis and a possible enlargement of the parathyroid gland.
         If the thyroiditis has resolved and the hormonal levels seem stable, the levothyroxine may be weaned/ stopped under medical supervision.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
