thyroiditis

i've just had a thyroid ultrasound and the measurements are as follows right lobe is 5.2 x 1.8 x 2cm and left is 5.4 x 1.9 x 2cm. Both lobes are heterogeneous with a mild increase in vascularity but no definite nodule is seen. Overall appearances are consistent with thyroiditis with no other abnormaility.

should i be concerned with this diagnosis or can this be treated with medication?

You have a swelling or inflammation of the thyroid. In some cases thyroiditis is self induced with something that has reacted in the body causing it... example - medications or diet or over stress ( body and/or mind) to name a few.

In some cases thyroiditis can be reverse and in some its not.

Did you have labs supporting this ultra sound? Getting the autoimmune and thyroid labs would be a great indictor on what really is happening and comparing those results to the US scan.
