Thyroid Nodule

A small circumscribed mass in the thyroid gland that can be of neoplastic growth or non-neoplastic abnormality. It lacks a well-defined capsule or glandular architecture. Thyroid nodules are often benign but can be malignant. The growth of nodules can lead to a multinodular goiter (goiter, nodular).
