Thyroid nodules are common and, depending on the detection technique used, can affect 50% or greater of the population. The primary diagnostic test to assess the nature of these nodules is fine-needle aspiration cytology. Most thyroid nodules are benign and often are multiple. However, the morphology of these nodules may ...
