A solid benign thyroid nodule that is not a goiter and normal TSH levels. What is it?

Nodule: I presume its been biopsied. If its benign it likely represents inflammation from autoimmune thyroid disease. Continue to monitor it carefully - if it is single and getting larger it may require a second biopsy or removal. ...Read more
