Thyroid Ultra Sound

I recently had an ultra sound and the results read as follows, anyone that can shed any light on any of the following information I would appreciate it.

On the right side the right lobe of the thyroid measures 4.8x2x1.8cm. In the mid pole of the right lobe of the thyroid there is a mass that appears to both cystic as well as solid. The mass measures approx 2.2x1.7x1.9cm. The cystic component which is mostly anterior measures approx 1.4x0.7x1.7cm. The posterior aspect of the mass is nodular. There is also slightly increased vascularity to this region. In addition, just superior to this larger mass there is a second nodule with a marked amount of back shadowing most likely representing a calcified nodule.

The left lobe of the thyroid measures 1.2x1.3x4.0 In the left lobe of the thyroid in the upper pole, there is a small nodule posteriorly that measures approx 0.5x0.3x0.4 cm. In addition, in the lower pole anteriorly, there is a hypoechoic nodule measures 0.6x0.4x0.4 cm. These are most likely small adenomas.

Cool Re: Thyroid Ultra Sound

Hi nola - welcome

Sorry, I have no clue as to the normal size of a lobe or how to "read" those results.
But am bumping this with hopes that someone CAN

Re: Thyroid Ultra Sound

Thanks for the reply. This is the first time I am using this message board. I went to the doctor yesterday and he has now scheduled a scan and T3, T4 and TSH level blood work.

Re: Thyroid Ultra Sound

That is the proper thing to do......see what your labs are and get a scan.....did he order any antibody tests? Ask him to do them......... Oleander
