Nodular goitre is common in the general population and less than 5% of the patients who undergo surgery for solitary thyroid nodules have cancer, in absence of clinical suspicion. Nodu...
Nowadays, the investigation of thyroid nodules is limited by the fact that up to 49% of the fine needle aspirations (FNA) performed on them are of "indeterminate cytological signification"...
Ultrasound-guided ethanol ablation is an effective treatment modality for patients with cystic thyroid nodules (cystic portion > 90%); however it is less effective in predominantly cystic ...
Thyroid cancer is a common neck malignancy. Currently, total thyroidectomy or subtotal thyroidectomy is the main method for the treatment of thyroid cancer patients. However, some thyroid ...
RATIONALE: Gathering information about patients with thyroid cancer or thyroid nodules may help the study of thyroid cancer in the future. PURPOSE: This study is gathering information and...
The purpose of the current study was to investigate the diagnostic performance of Tc-99m methoxy-isobutyl-isonitrile (MIBI) for differentiation of malignant thyroid nodules (TN) through a systematic r...
The second edition Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytology estimates 6-18% malignancy rate of category III (B3) and 10-40% for category IV (B4) nodules; however, reported malignancy rates have ...
Thyroid nodules are common, frequently discovered in clinical practice and the incidence has increased in recent decades. They are clinically important primarily due to their malignant potential, beca...
Thyroid nodules are a common finding in the general population. Ultrasonography is the most sensitive imaging tool for diagnosing thyroid nodules. However, sonographic differentiation of hormonally ac...
Recently, the American (ATA) and the European Thyroid Association (ETA), have proposed that thyroid ultrasound (US) should be used to stratify the risk of malignancy in thyroid nodules and to aid deci...
An aggressive THYROID GLAND malignancy which generally occurs in IODINE-deficient areas in people with previous thyroid pathology such as GOITER. It is associated with CELL DEDIFFERENTIATION of THYROID CARCINOMA (e.g., FOLLICULAR THYROID CARCINOMA; PAPILLARY THYROID CANCER). Typical initial presentation is a rapidly growing neck mass which upon metastasis is associated with DYSPHAGIA; NECK PAIN; bone pain; DYSPNEA; and NEUROLOGIC DEFICITS.
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 form of IODINE deficiency disorders characterized by an enlargement of the THYROID GLAND in a significantly large fraction of a POPULATION GROUP. Endemic goiter is common in mountainous and iodine-deficient areas of the world where the DIET contains insufficient amount of iodine.
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 dehydrated extract of thyroid glands from domesticated animals. After the removal of fat and connective tissue, the extract is dried or lyophilized to yield a yellowish to buff-colored amorphous powder containing 0.17-0.23% of iodine.
