Thyroid tumor

My daughter, who is almost 30, was just diagnosed for a thyroid tumor. She hasn't been given a biopsy date yet. My question to you is this: I know it could be cancerous, but even if it isn't doesn't it have to come out? Thanks.

Re: Thyroid tumor

Over 85% of these are benign, but if it's very large she might have to consider removal, as some of these larger ones grow out of control even if benign.

Most of the time the needle biopsy is benign, and she should just keep an eye on it for growth and changes with an ultrasound over time.
