I need help with understanding my ultrasound report.
Findings: The thyroid gland is normal in size, configuration, with smooth marginal contour. The right lobe measures
4.5 x 1.3 x 1.8 cm, the left 4.5 x 1.5 x 1.6 cm, and the isthmus 0.40 cm in thickness. There is homogeneous echoegenicity throughout the gland, except for the presence of two hypoechoic nodules within the right thyroid lobe. Both nodules are solid and hypoechoic, with a nodule at the inferomedial aspect at the junction of the isthmus measuring 0.6 x 0.4 x 0.5 cm and on the inferolateral aspect measuring 0.5 x 0.2 x 0.3 cm. No left thyroid nodule or other abnormality identified. Normal vascularity to each lobe. No extrathyroidal mass or lymphadenopathy.
I would appreciate any response. Thanks in advance!
Thanks for your quick response :) I don't have Hashimoto's or thyroid condition as of right now. Still waiting for lab results. I had lab work in December 2011. All normal.
I had an MRI done of my neck for pain and it showed a mild heterogeneity in the appearance of the left lobe of my thyroid. My doctor schedule an ultrasound which showed nothing on the left but the nodules on the right. As of right now i don't have insurance so I'm trying to get as much help understanding this report to plan what i need to do next.
For Hashimoto I read the glands are swollen? but mine are normal size.
