Thyroid nodule: The incidence of thyroid cancer in a thyroid nodule is less than 7%. By ultrasound alone can not make the diagnosis, most of the time it is not well described all the details of the tumor or may not be available on the scan. You need a tissue diagnosis through a needle biopsy. Talk to your endocrinologist
