Thyroid Nodule 25 Years Old Cancer Dying
My 54 year old sister has 2 thyroid nodules that are heterogeous and calcified. Is this cancer? How serious is this?
It depends: There are many factors which affect a given nodule's risk of being a thyroid cancer. These include size, and other features visible on us (ultrasound) and patient age.
