new to board--question about ultrasound results

hello ,

after nearly a year of experiencing a constellation of bizarre symptoms ranging from headaches, neurological symptoms, visual changes, etc., i am currently being evaluated for suspected autoimmune thyroid disease. i had an ultrasound last friday (12/18) and just got the report in the mail today. i don't have a follow up with my doctor until 1/7/10, but i wondered if anyone might be able to help me interpret the findings so i can put my mind at ease a little bit.


The thyroid gland is within normal limits. [then lists measurements]. Thyroid parenchyma appears mildly coarsened/heterogeneous, particularly in the right inferior gland. Tiny 2mm cyst in right lower gland. Hypoechoic lesion in right lateral isthmus measures up to 4mm, unclear if cystic versus solid. No obvious hypervascularity on Doppler interrogation.


Mild parenchymal heterogeneity suggests possibility of thyroiditis.

4mm hypoechoic lesion in right lateral isthmus, unclear if solid or cystic. Lesion could be followed by ultrasound if clinically indicated.

thank you in advance!
best wishes,

Sponsors Lightbulb
