The solitary pulmonary nodule represents a common diagnostic challenge for clinicians. While most are benign, a significant number represent early, potentially curable lung cancers. With the increased...

Variation in the Quality of Thyroid Nodule Evaluations Before Surgical Referral.

Thyroid nodules are highly prevalent, and owing to their malignant potential, proper evaluation is imperative. The objective of this study was to characterize variation in thyroid nodule evaluations.

Thyroid nodules in children and adolescents.

Compared with adults, there is a two-fold to three-fold increased risk of malignancy for a pediatric patient undergoing evaluation of a thyroid nodule. In 2015, the American Thyroid Association publis...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A single lung lesion that is characterized by a small round mass of tissue, usually less than 1 cm in diameter, and can be detected by chest radiography. A solitary pulmonary nodule can be associated with neoplasm, tuberculosis, cyst, or other anomalies in the lung, the CHEST WALL, or the PLEURA.

An enlarged THYROID GLAND containing multiple nodules (THYROID NODULE), usually resulting from recurrent thyroid HYPERPLASIA and involution over many years to produce the irregular enlargement. Multinodular goiters may be nontoxic or may induce THYROTOXICOSIS.

A small circumscribed mass in the THYROID GLAND that can be of neoplastic growth or non-neoplastic abnormality. It lacks a well-defined capsule or glandular architecture. Thyroid nodules are often benign but can be malignant. The growth of nodules can lead to a multinodular goiter (GOITER, NODULAR).

A small round or oval, mostly subcutaneous nodule made up chiefly of a mass of Aschoff bodies and seen in cases of rheumatic fever. It is differentiated from the RHEUMATOID NODULE which appears in rheumatoid arthritis, most frequently over bony prominences. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
