enlarged heterogeneous gland
I just received my Radiology report and the results were Enlarged heterogeneous gland. Right lobe measures 5.3 x 1.7x1.6 cm without focal nodularity. Left lobe measures 5.7 x 1.9 x 2.1 cm with a complex nodule in the lower pole measuring 5 x6 mm . The isthmus is unremarkable measuring 6.2 mm. Can anyone please explain what this means

enlarged heterogeneous gland is usually referring to the inflamed denser tissue of the thyroid associated with antibodies attacking it.

left lobe of the thyroid gland has a small nodule growth. since its smaller than 1 cm, there were no further comments - its not uncommon.

the thyroid volume is about 18.4 cu cm which is slightly above the WHO set upper limit but 2.5 times larger than average thyroid volume for adult female.
