I have Hashimoto's and my doctor felt a nodule and sent me for a ultrasound. It showed that thyroid parenchyma is completely covered with solid thyroids nodules. And it is very vascular. What does all this mean

Hello, Thank you for posting.

For the benefit of our readers, the term thyroid nodule refers to an abnormal growth of thyroid cells that forms a lump within the thyroid gland. A small proportion is determined to be cancerous, but a vast majority are not. Hashimoto's disease is when the immune system attacks the butterfly-shaped gland in the neck (thyroid).

I am sorry, Anon, but we cannot interpret results for our readers. You will need to have these results explained to you. I understand how frustrating it is to have results with no explanation which is why you need to contact your doctors office and have someone spend some time, even over the phone, to let you where you stand regarding the health.

Keep us updated.
