A thyroid hypoechoic mass is when there are darker spots during an ultrasound. Also, these spots will require fewer waves through them.
Hepoechoi thyroid nodule are not cancerous .
Isoechoic means same texture as surrounding tissue on an Ultrasound. Lucent or Sonolucent means abscence of echoes surrounding the area. The thyroid gland can have areas that appear to be a "Halo" with normal tissue inside. After a biopsy or nuclear scan it may be diagnosed as an Ademona or Cancerous. They can be Euthyroid ( not effecting thyroid hormone levels) or hyperfunctioning (secreting more hormones than normal) -this information is based on studies of the Human Thyroid Gland.
This is an ultrasound report that is saying that the thyroid that was scanned has a solid nodule that is just a little under 1/2 inch in diameter and doesn't show up as well compared to the surrounding tissue..
A hypoechoic nodule is a fluid-filled or solid mass that causes weak, limited echoes in comparison to the surrounding tissue during an ultrasound or sonogram. It is most frequently detected in the thyroid, and caused by diet-induced iodine deficiency, autoimmune disorders, radiation exposure and genetics.

A thyroid nodule is simply a mass in your thyroid. Hyperechoic is a term used in ultrasound which determines how bright or dark the nodule is. Ultrasound is all black, white, and gray scales, so a hyperechoic nodule would be a mass in the thyroid that is BRIGHTER than the rest of the thyroid tissue.
An ultrasound is used to diagnose a thyroid condition such as a nodule or goiter (enlargement of the thyroid gland). This diagnostic tool helps a doctor get a better look at the health of the thyroid. If also helps determine if there is a need for further testing of the thyroid tissue through a fine needle biopsy or thyroid scan uptake.
dysphagia or difficulty swallowing
The examination takes 15-30 minutes.
Most thyroid ultrasounds are performed to evaluate a small lump (nodule) in the thyroid found during a physical examination or found by a radionuclide study (thyroid scan).
Diffuse thyroid parenchymal disease just means disease of the thyroid throughout the body of an organ. It is not a diagnosis, but only an observation based on thyroid ultrasound.
