The overalls size of the thyroid gland is within normal Limits. Parenchymal echogenicity is diffusely heterogeneous with multiple areas of decreased echogenicity. ? makes positive recognition of nodules difficult. On the left there appears to be 8 x 6mm hypoechoic nodules posteriorly at the mid thyroid Ievel. On the right a slightly larger 12 x 5mm nodule is noted posteriorly as weII. Vascularlty of the thyroid was satisfactory and there was no retrosternal extensi.on. I have a lump on my throat recently and due to feeling choke chronic cough with changes in my voice I did the ultrasound again after one year and did blood test again anti tpo is still same as last year 1300 and TSH 5.12 last year tsh is 4.98...last year I was diagnosed with hasimoto thyroiditis and due to the lump and feeling choke with voice weakness I did the ultra sound ...the above is the latest report ...last year report was just a multiple small nodule but this time the nodule were bigger then last year..I wolud like to know if the nodule are signs of tumor? I did have chest xray last year and do u think its because of the xray or it just thytoitiditis nodule ? Should I be concerning about it
