What is :Hypodensity on thyroid lobe ?

Can someone explain what this means " hypodensity posterior left thyroid lobe" ?

Hi Mike!

You live in a town neighboring to me!

CT scans, and all different scans show different things, you should probably talk to an ENT/surgeon about this, and consider getting an ultrasound to see if there are any nodules emergency or anything.

hashis takes it's toll over the years and destroys the thyroid gland, my mother in law who's in her 60's had hashis since she was 11-12, and they found a suspicious nodule (lots of people have them, they are usually nothing), and they ended up removing her thyroid because it was very diseased, and everything was benign.......she's fine now........
