Ultrasound Report

Dear Dr....
I'am a 33 y.o. female who has had several neck/thyroid ultrasounds performed in the past 3 years. The most recent report findings are as follows:
* Small 6mm nodule lower pole left lobe of thyroid
* 5mm hypoechoic nodule lower pole right lobe of thyroid
* Small to modest size lymph node left neck measuring 1.5cm

All ultrasounds have shown the nodules. My concern is that the report is now stating the lymph node is 1.5cm. Is this concerning? Also, the measurements of my lobes have increased from R.Lobe 4.0 x 1.5 x 1.5cm to 4.5 x 1.4 x 1.3 cm and the L Lobe 4.2 x 1.5 x 1.5 cm to 4.6 x 1.5 x 1.2cm.

Thank you for your thoughts on this! May you have a blessed day!

Concerned Patient

There is no significant difference in overall size of the thyroid between these readings.
The lymph node needs to be evaluated in terms of characteristics, not just size -- that takes a good sonologist (clinician using ultrasound) or radiologist to evaluate.  If in doubt, FNA biopsy may be helpful.
