Ultrasound detected three tumors in the thyroid gland with swelling visible to the naked eye outside the neck
Thyroid nodules are very common, and cystic solid nodules are almost always benign lesions.The solid nodule on the left, with clear borders and a regular pattern, is also consistent with a benign presentation.However, the cystic solid nodule on the left side was large, about 3 cm, and surgery should be considered for such a nodule, even if it is benign.
For patients with thyroid nodules, the treatment varies from person to person. First, we need to know the nature of the nodule and its function and the extent to which the patient is causing harm; for benign nodules without symptoms, we recommend that patients undergo regular review to prevent cancer.
Thyroid nodules can be treated with medication and surgery.Medications include thyroxine, prednisone, propylthiouracil, and methimazole.Surgical treatment can be chosen from subtotal thyroidectomy small incision thyroidectomy.The treatment time varies from about one month to one year.
