I just recently had an ultrasound done due to having a bit of tightness in my throat. All the ultrasound found was two nodules, 9mm x 7mm nodule on right lobe and a 8mm x 8mm nodule on the left lobe. The report described them both as hypoechoic, but did not say any other details about the margins (ill or well defined) or anything else. The lobes were apparently normal at 5.1 x 1.4 x 1.1 cm and the other at 5.1 x 1.1 x 0.6 cm. The texture around the nodules was homogenous in appearance. The radiologist made no recommendations on the report, it was quite basic. She did not write whether the nodules were solid or not, but she said they have the appearance of an adenoma, so think that means they were solid in appearance. The only other mention of the report was a 4mm cystic area with bright margins, but this is small and I think cysts are normal.
I just have a few questions:
1. Would this be the characteristics of a mulitnodular goiter or does the report have to say enlarged thyroid?
2. I'm just curious if nodules mean I should see an endocrinologist to have it checked our, or are nodules common and everybody would have this. I'm just not sure if my thyroid is healthy or not as the radiologist made no recommendation either way.
