Hi, I was just wondering if anyone can help me make sense of my Thyroid Ultrasound report (I have an appointment in a couple weeks with an endocrinologist and she'll do further testing..but I was just wondering if someone can fill me in on what it might mean before then)....My report reads....
Just posterior to the right lobe of the thyroid, there is a well defined 1.4 x 1 cm nodular density. This is surrounded by a slightly hyperechoic tissue plane. It would be unusual to have a normal thyroid demonstrating curvilinear hyperechoic septation within it. Therefore, differential diagnosis is that of ectopic thyroid tissue versus parathyroid nodule versus and extrinsic leasion posterior to the thyroid.
There is a similar finding on the left side of the thyroid as well with this posteriorly positioned nodule measuring 1.8 x 1.3 cm. Again, the differential diagnosis would include ectopic thyroid tissue versus parathyroid nodule versus other lesion extrinsic to the they thyroid.
Thanks for any help!!
