I stumbled on this forum trying to find out what my ultrasound results mean. I am going to try to get in to see an Endochonolgist but it'll probably be a few weeks before I can get an appointment.

A little background. In 2014, I went to the doctor because I was shaking and jittery. Turns out I had elevated TSH and an ultrasound found a small nodule. The endochonologist diagnosed it as thyroidistis and it went away on its own.

For a few months now I've been feeling discomfort or pressure at the base of my neck so I saw my family Dr. He did bloodwork and had me get an ultrasound. My bloodwork was normal - T4 was 1.27 and TSH was 1.54. My ultrasound results are below:

Findings:

The right lobe measures 5.5 x 1.7 x 1.9cm.

Nodule # 1
Location: Lower pole
Size: 8 x 7 x 8 cm
Composition : Difficult to ascertain given shadowing by the peripheral
calcification
Echogenicity: Hypoechogenic internally
Shape: Widened than tall
Margin: Well-defined
Echogenic Foci: Peripherally calcified
TIRADS Category: 4
Comparison with prior nodule: Progressively peripherally calcified..

The left lobe measures 5.3 x 1.6 x 1.7cm.

The isthmus measures 0.3 cm.

--
IMPRESSION:
Progressive peripheral calcification of a stable sized right lower pole thyroid
nodule. TI-RADS 4.

Could you help me interpret these?

Thanks
