Cool Need Help Understand Sono Results...Hashimoto Thryriod

I was diagnosed with Hashimoto Thyroid Disease about 4 years ago, just had a "follow up sono" and need help to understand the results since I don't see the doctor for another month!

Thanks in advance.

the right lobe is boderline for enlarged at 5cm x 1.7cm x 1.9cm. there is a mid to upper pole isoechoic nodule of 7mm.

the left lobe is boderline for enlarged measuring 5.1cm x 1.5cm x 1.9cm. there is a mild pole complicated cyst of 5mm.

the isthmus is thickened to 5mm.

impression:
thromegaly with several isoechoic and solid masses, the largest has a 7mm diameter.

any help is appreciated...Thanks!!!

Re: Need Help Understand Sono Results...Hashimoto Thryriod

You can call the doctor's office and ask for a call back to find out more. You basically seem to have a "multi-nodular goiter" an enlarged lumpy bumpy thyroid, usually from hashis, pretty common.

You should probably follow up every 6-12 months, make sure there's no growth on the larger nodule, but there doesn't seem to be anything alarming, though if your thyroid keeps enlarging, it may become uncomfortable.

Thanks for your reply...I usually see the Endo every 4-6 months as a follow up. My last sono was 3 yrs ago and the cysts were only 3mm, seems to have grown a bit which concerned me.

Thanks again.
