Thyroid nodules develop when thyroid tissue grows into a small lump. Some nodules are solid, and some contain fluid. If a nodule only contains fluid, it is called a cyst. Thyroid nodules are different from a goiter. A goiter is when the entire thyroid gland becomes enlarged. Goiters can contain thyroid nodules
Thyroid nodules are extremely common and can be detected by sensitive imaging in more than 60% of the general population. They are often identified in patients without symptoms who are undergoing evaluation for other medical complaints.

These are a common finding in the general population, majority being diagnosed incidentally during neck imaging. The major clinical relevance lies in the fact that 4-6.5% of nodules can be malignant.

The ATA Guidelines Task Force publication strongly recommends that if the TSH is below the normal range, further assessment such as radionuclide scan is needed to assess whether there is an overactive thyroid gland or hyperfunctioning thyroid nodule, based on moderate-quality evidence [Haugen, 2016] The main cause is unknown, but thyroid nodules and thyroid enlargement are more common in women than men and increase in frequency with age.

Thyroid nodules are very common in the adult population. A large autopsy study published in 1955 found that 50% of patients with no clinical history of thyroid disease had thyroid nodules, and the majority were multiple .Like autopsy, imaging can reveal subclinical thyroid nodules. With increased use of imaging for screening, diagnosis, an We are dedicated to providing the field of endocrinology with timely, evidence-based recommendations for clinical care and practice. We continually create new guidelines and update existing guidelines to reflect evolving clinical science and meet the needs of practicing physicians Thyroid nodules are nodules (raised areas of tissue or fluid) which commonly arise within an otherwise normal thyroid gland. They may be hyperplastic or tumorous, but only a small percentage of thyroid tumors are malignant.Small, asymptomatic nodules are common, and often go unnoticed. Nodules that grow larger or produce symptoms may eventually need medical care With Fan Zhang, MD, PhD, and Stephanie L. Lee, MD, PhD In the evolving care of patients with thyroid nodules, two key recommendations were highlighted to promote improved detection and treatment of thyroid cancer during the AACE 2018, the 27 th Annual AACE Scientific and Clinical Congress held from May 17 to 20, 2018, in Boston, Massachusetts. pertaining to thyroid assessment and length of.
