What does heterogeneous echotexture mean ?

Hi all,

Just had a ultrasound done on my thiroid and results were

The thiroid gland is not enlarged-6cc, no discrete nodules are demonstrated although the echotexture is a little patchy and heterogeneous . no surrounding changes

conclusion: no goitre, no specific nodules but heterogeneous echotexture

I am on thiroid meds for underactive thiroid and have swelling in my neck, feeling realy tired constantly
Was wondering if anyone else has similar symptoms

Thanks in advance : )
