In a new state. Autonomic dz is pots. Pit, liver, ovary adenomas. Thyroid has new solid nodules and nodes. Only bx'd node. ?Ask for excision?
Thyroid nodules: I know more about pots than thyroid but in general if you have a node biopsied, if there is not diagnosis, they will likely biopsy nodule to determine whether to excise.
