Hypoechoic hypervascular means there is an increased blood flow in the nodule.
Presence of colloid background with macrophages  suggested a possibility of colloid goiter with inflammatory process, while small number of Hurthle cell  may point to Hashimoto's thyroiditis (unless the needle skipped the cluster of Hurtle cells).You may want to get another cytologist to take look on the sample.
