Thyroid nodule: Solid nodules that appear dark or hypoechoic on ultrasound and have small calcifications are more likely to be cancerous. Fluid filled nodules (>2cm for FNA) without these features could be benign. Correlation with the US data is necessary to be certain that the lesion was adequately sampled by FNA.
