This is Dr. David

it is normal for the thyroid gland to look heterogeneous under ultrasound scan. milk is heterogeneous because it is made of water and fat and is homogenized to mix the two together.

heterogeneous just means made up of different parts.

how large is the single discrete nodule in the left lobe? if the nodule is larger than 1cm in size, it should be biopsied to see if it might be early thyroid cancer.
