I recently had a neck ultrasound that had some nodules. The doctor did a biopsy on the nodules and now I am waiting for the results. I was told it could be at least 2 weeks. In the meantime I have been trying find out more about these ultrasound results. Can someone help me? I haven't been able to find all the info online.
US HEAD AND NECK SOFT TISSUE
Limited views of the thyroid gland were obtained to better
characterize thyroid nodules.
An enlarged lymph node with prominent hilar stripe is seen in the
right neck at level IV
In the right upper pole of the thyroid lateral location a poorly
defined relatively hyperechoic area with scattered internal
calcifications is seen measuring 1.4 x 0.8 x 0.8 cm, volume 0.5
In the right lower pole a poorly defined poorly seen hypoechoic
area measures 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.6 cm, volume 0.08 cm³
In the left lower pole a fairly well-defined nodule measures 1.8
x 1.6 x 1.4 cm, volume 2.04 cm³ with possible anterior
interrupted rim calcification and heterogeneous echodensity
Thank you so much!
