Re: Thyroid nodule

Benign thyroid nodules are very common growths on the thyroid. She needs an ultrasound, and if it is around 1 cm or larger, they can do a needle biopsy. Then it will be watched over time for changes and/or growth. Many people are walking around with these and don't even know it. 85-95 percent are benign.
