Management of Thyroid nodules
Hewitt J, Srivatsa S

Program Audience Primary care physicians Educational Needs Addressed Thyroid nodules are very common lesions, frequently detected by modern imaging methods. Only malignant or large symptomatic nodules require surgical treatment, and a systematic approach to the evaluation of thyroid nodules is important to avoid unnecessary surgery. Fine-needle aspiration biopsy has resulted in substantial improvements in diagnostic accuracy, cost reductions, and higher malignancy yield at time of surgery. It is important for physicians to understand the historical and physical examination data that are helpful in evaluating thyroid nodules and which tests to consider in their workup. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Describe the clinical presentation and risk factors for thyroid nodule 2. Know the differential diagnosis of thyroid nodule 3. Describe the tests and procedures used for workup of thyroid nodules 4. Describe treatment options for patients with thyroid nodule
