Since age 11 I have been diagnosed with Hashimotos and I'm currently 38 years old. Last week I ended up having my very first thyroid ultrasound due to health problems. I don't understand my results and I would like to know if I should be concerned. I don't know when I will be able to talk to my doctor. The doctor that ordered my ultrasound moved and I will be seeing a new one hopefully soon. I'm so worried, can anyone help me?
Enlarged heterogeneous thyroid with multiple calcifications.
The thyroid appears mildly enlarged with right lobe 5.8 x 2.1 x 2.0 cm, left lobe 5.5 x 1.5 x 1.9 cm, and isthmus mildly thickened at 4 mm. Echotexture is diffusely heterogeneous with multiple scattered shadowing macrocalcifications (largest inferior right lobe 1.1 cm) without evidence of distinct nodule.
