A 36-year-old female asked:

Does a solid 1.1 cm thyroid nodule need to be biopsy?

Yes: Solid nodules carry the risk of being thyroid cancer (although certainly most solid thyroid nodules are not cancer). Because of the risk, you should have a biopsy done (most can be done using a very thin needle while an ultrasound is being done).

A 36-year-old female asked:

Can a solid nodule 1.1 CM on thyroid go away on its own?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in

Not likely: If it is solid and solitary, it is probably a neoplasm, most likely an adenoma. But it could also be cancer, so have it checked out. Even if it is, most thyroid cancers have excellent prognosis with surgical treatment alone.
