Abstract

Thyroid nodules are common, and ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration identifies 70-75% as benign, and 4% as malignant. The remainder falls into categories of "indeterminate" with a widely ranging malignancy rate from 10-75%. The diagnosis and clinical management of indeterminate lesions is evolving, and we will review ancillary testing as an aid to diagnosis.
