TURCIOS TRISTA, Silvia Elena; INFANTE AMOROS, Adalberto  y  GONZALEZ RIVERO, Levi. Thyroid nodule. Rev Cubana Endocrinol [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.3, pp.234-241. ISSN 1561-2953.

In the last few years, the frequency of diagnosis of the thyroid nodule has increased. A correct clinical method and some supplementary tests are the factors to be taken into account to define the nature of lesion and functionality. At present, new elements are added to the imaging studies, which help to predict somehow the risk of malignancy of these lesions, and it is intended to reach a more uniform and guiding cytological result. The behaviors should adapt to the type of thyroid disease and to the risks, but the combination of those specialties that have to do with the nodular thyroid disease is indispensable in order to uniform criteria favoring adequate and efficient diagnostic and therapeutic processes, and reducing the risks and costs of the adoption of inadequate and unnecessary behaviors.

Palabras clave : thyroid nodule; thyroid; TSH; ultrasound; fine-needle aspiration biopsy.
