Does a single solid thyroid nodule grow rapidly if it is benign? The nodule is not a goiter. Tsh levels are normal.

In brief: Nodule

A single rapidly growing thyroid nodule is concerning regardless of thyroid function.
If it has doubled in size in a short time or measures over 1 cm it necessitates a biosy to rule out malignancy.
