Total thyroidectomy was done in those cases where FNAC was reported as malignant. Thyroid nodules that should be considered for FNA include any firm, palpable, solitary nodule or nodule associated with worrisome clinical features rapid growth, attachment to adjacent tissues, hoarseness, or palpable lymphadenopathy. Study of incidence in between benign and malignant tumors of solitary thyroid nodule. Thyroid cancers in nodular goiters in Kano, Nigeria. With the use of imaging techniques, particularly ultrasound, the chance of detection of thyroid nodules has increased many folds.

The anatomical structures of the neck and mediastinum that may be involved by thyroid cancer are best evaluated by contrast CT scans. These markers accurately distinguish benign from malignant thyroid nodules, even in the subset of cytologically indeterminate FNABs. With the use of imaging techniques, particularly ultrasound, the chance of detection of thyroid nodules has increased many folds.
Author: Moustafa Elnahas,Waleed/ Title: Contemporary Management of Solitary Thyroid Nodule
Management of a solitary thyroid nodule. Percutanous ethanol injection under sonographic guided is a relatively safe, low cost, outpatient method of treatment that has been applied successfully as an alternative to surgery for the management of thyrodi and malignant lesions of various tissues and organs. In a study from Nigeria, the authors have described malignancy in1 out of the 13 cases of STN 7. Subtotal operations are followed by I-ablation therapy.

Indian J Endocrinol Metab. However, surgery may be indicated in patients with a benign STN with high risk for malignancy. Treatment of Solitary Thyroid Nodule. J Coll Physicians Surg Pak.
J Clin Endocrinol Metab. Sherif, Mahmoud Farouk Mohammed Ali. The vast majority of thyroid nodules are benign; the aim of management and investigation is to detect those malignant lesions to select them for surgery.
In our previous experience also we have noted, better yield of diagnostic cytological material with the help of the USG-guided aspirations compared to blind FNAC. Abstract The solitary thyroid nodule is a palpable discrete swelling within an apparently normal gland. The preoperative evaluation of thyroid nodules to distinguish between benign and malignant nodules is very important.
Malignancy in solitary thyroid nodule: A clinicoradiopathological evaluation
The difference in age and sex among the different types of malignancy is non significant. Pathology of thyroid nodule. Total thyroidectomy was performed in 80 Nodules are found through physical examination or incidentally through imaging modalities performed for other reasons.
The findings of our study also suggest that presence of cervical lymphadenopathy is high in presence of malignant thyroid nodule. Type of Surgery and operative findings Hemithyroidectomy was done in 56 Also it classifies the nodules into solid, cystic, or mixed. Fine-needle aspiration cytology was done before the surgery in all the patients and was reported as nodular goiter in 62 Patients with aneuploid differentiated thyroid tumors have poorer prognosis compared with patients with diploid tumors.
Metastatic deposits in the lymph nodes were seen in 13 patients of the total 33 patients who had undergone solitzry node dissection.
Anti-Gal3 antibody immunoreactivity was observed in 7 thesjs of 8 cases In the event of a malignant frozen section report, completion thyroidectomy was done in the same sitting, whereas in inconclusive frozen section, we preferred to wait till the final histopathology report.
Contemporary Management of Solitary Thyroid Nodule. During the study period, patients were operated for various thyroid diseases. Total thyroidectomy is done for patients showing malignant criteria detected by either cytological examination or flow cytometric study.
They solitarry be characterized properly for optimum management. Clin Endocrinol Oxf ; The adenomatous colloid nodules are either observed or suppressed by thyroxin, also surgery is recommended if the nodule grows; for the exclusion of malignancy. Only 14 pages are availabe for public view.
