CT Thyroid Abnormal

Anyone know what abnormal thyroid means on CT scan. Is it cancer?

Not a medical professional, but to me it sounds like it's showing that the thyroid is larger than it should be, or perhaps the lobes are not even.

It could be another type of thyroid disease like hashimoto's.

Re: CT Thyroid Abnormal

Definitely does not point in particular to cancer, if that is what you are worried about. There are numerous reasons for thyroid abnormalities. I hope you are doing well!
