Thyroid size

I had an ultrasound done after my family doctor thought my thyroid look enlarged.  The doctor that read my ultrasound said that my sonogram was normal.  I listed the report below.  It seems they feel I have an enlarged thyroid with out a nodule, but what does that mean?  
Indication: Enlarged thyroid  
Thyroid ultrasound performed without comparison study. The thyroid is normal in size and echogenicity. The right thyroid lobe measures 6.5 x 1.1 x 2.1 cm. The left thyroid lobe measures 6.2 x 0.9 x 1.6 cm. The thyroid isthmus appears normal measuring 2.6 mm in thickness. No thyroid nodule or mass is identified.  Impression: Normal sonographic appearance of the thyroid gland. No evidence for nodule or mass.
