Possible: Reason for cervical ultrasound is palpable nodule in mid neck. mild lymphadenopathy rarely of concern and question of parathyroid adenoma is usually just adjacent to upper or lower pole of thyroid. Essential to get throid scan to see if cold or functional nodule present. If cold nodule seen and on follow up it enlarges, then resection needed at which time nodes defined.
