Usually biopsy: Solitary thyroid nodules may be benign, especially in women but the usual way to proceed is a simple ultrasound directed biopsy to confirm this is benign.

Benign: small reactive node means just that,...... no worries just follow up Solitary solid nodule can be benign... rec thyroid I uptake scan if hot benign if cold on uptake scan consider biopsy
