    Unhappy Need help with new thyroid sonogram-

    Hi: well i am back with cy of my recent sonogram-and I wont be in to see my Dr. until Dec., In the meantime, the hospital faxed this report over to me.


    The right thyroid lobe measures 3.3 x 1.3 x 0.4 cm
    The left thyroid lobe measures 3.3 x 1.2 x 1.1 cm
    The echo texture of the thyroid gland is heterogeneous, giving the appearance of multiple small nodules. Inferior and lateral to the left thyroid lobe is a 0.9 x 0.4 cm hypoechoic, well circumscribed structure. I am uncertain whether this is contiguous with the inferior lobe of the left thyroid gland or separate from it.

    1. Findings consistent with multinodular goiter. The thyroid gland, however, is not enlarged.
    2. Hypoechoic nodule seen inferior and slightly lateral to the left thyroid lobe. This may represent a nodule attached to the thyroid gland or also in the differential is a small lymph node.

    My last ultrasound was in 1998- But for some time
    now, my thyroid/throat region has felt inflamed and
    so I asked to have this one done this week. It's all
    Greek to me. Do you think I will need a needle biopsy?

    Yes, if it is in a location that the doctor can reach it with a needle, you should probably get a biopsy of that structure that is close to 1 cm.
