Last ultrasound used all the buzz words, calcification, solid, hypoechoic etc but docs not least bit concerned. Sorry i can't tell you more, guess they're so common most docs disregard until major issues with them. Wishing you the best and hope you have a good, caring doc.
thank you for your comment, sorry to hear about your sufferings too.. what is tt? have you biopsied your nodules? i don't know how accurate is the needle biopsy, if it's not very accurate, why bother with the testing... how often do you do altrasound?
