Heterogeneous echotexture of the thyroid gland with a mass

I just received the Ultrasound of the Thyroid result from my doctor and here are the findings.
The isthmus measure 0.2cm
The right lobe measures 4.9x1.5x1.6 cm
The left lobe 4.0x1.2x1.4 cm
There is a mass in the right lobe with diffuse heterogeneous echotexture measuring 2.0x1.6cm
A nodule in the left lobe measuring 0.9cm
Is this very serious I am seeing an ENT DR. on Tuesday

It's very common to have a thyroid nodule, and 90% are benign. Your ENT will want to take a needle biopsy and make sure the cells inside the nodule are clear. It's a pretty easy procedure.

Re: Heterogeneous echotexture of the thyroid gland with a mass

Hello: I was just told I have a little bigger measurements than you in your thyroid. I came across you post from 2009, and was wondering what your diagnose was or what they did about it, and what kind of problems does that cause.
would love to hear from you.
