I had an ultrasound done on my thyroid. Results are right labor 0.8 × 2.9 ×2.0 and left lobe 3.0 × 2.8 × 5.7. The texture is extremely heterogeneous throughout. They said some Hashimoto's. Can you tell me what this means? It has grown in two years (mostly left lobe). It is going to be another month before I see a doctor and not sure when I will see an endocrinologist. Please help.

Your one lobe is larger than other. It could be a simple overgrowth or a tumor. To differentiate between these and to tell exactly what is the problem in your thyroid gland, you need to get a test called FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology) of thyroid or radioactive iodine uptake scan. Once you meet your doctor ask for these tests. Hashimoto's is one of the diseases where the patient initially will be hyperthyroid and gradually become hypothyroid, but in your case, you do not give any history of being hyperthyroid. So Hashimoto disease is less likely. Kindly get the tests recommended and revert with reports.
