Are multiple cysts in the thyroid glands a cause for concern?

I ve just done Thyroid Sonogram : the results was the right thyroid lobe measures 4.3 x 1.8 x 1.3 cm. The left thyroid lobe measures 4.5 x 1.6 x 1.26.7 x 2.1 x.2.2 cm. Parenchymal echoes show a septated cystic focus in the lower third of the right lobe measuring 1.7 x 1 x 1.3cm. A tiny cyst at the upper third measures .3 x .2 cm. A large cyst in the enlarged left lobe measures 4 x 2 x 3.8cm. Small mural nodules are seen. What does it mean? YYYY@YYYY

It may be due to many things like colloid cysts.

I had a ultrasound done on my neck and they found lots of cysts on one side of my thyroid. What is the usual treatment for that? Also, I get a cramped up feeling in my neck (similar to a before you vomit feeling) but it s on and off all day, this has been going on for two weeks. No strep, possibly Indagestion causing throat scratchyness and spasms?

Yes, I have several cysts in my body. One in the back of my head about the size of an eraser head, one on my shine bone, about that same size, one that has recently popped up on the top of my left hand close to my wrist. It is a little irratating this evening. I also have a fatty tumor on my upper thigh. Do you know if this may be something that I need to be concerned about? I also had to have a hystarectomy 5 years ago because of a fibroid tumor. I m only 32! I just don t understand why I am getting all of these, and could it be cancer?
