1 Cm Nodule On Thyroid
Single hot 1 CM nodule on thyroid scan with normal thyroid blood panels & uptake. Chances of malignancy?
Not likely: "hot" nodules are rarely cancer and most often represent benign follicular adenomas.

Thyroid issues: Thyroid conditions such as thyroiditis and nodules can exist and cause symptoms for years.
