"Did not explain"

About: Weston General Hospital

I attended an ultrasound on my thyroid. Whilst the radiographer explained my thyroid was enlarged, the radiographer didn't go into any detail as to why, nor why there were irregular specks of red and yellow on my gland and up somewhere else away from it. When my GP looked through the report, my GP was disappointed to note that the report did not go into any detail about size or shape. Not very helpful.
