Specializes in Endocrinology

Thyroid nodule: You have a nodule that has both solid and liquid mixes within the nodule. These are common. Depending on your risk factors: family history of thyroid cancer, excessive radiation exposures to the neck... Your option is to proceed with ultrasound guided biopsy or continued monitoring anc biopsy if it's growing in the future.
