Thyroid Nodules : Risk Factors, Diagnosis & Management Hardback
Edited by Marsha Vasquez
Thyroid nodules are commonly diagnosed in adults, although they are rare in children affecting only 1% - 2% of this population.
Since the late 1960's, ultrasound (US) has become essential in the examination of the thyroid gland as a non-invasive, rapid and easily reproducible imaging study.
This book provides the reader with a framework from which to develop a differential diagnosis, risk factors and evaluation plan for both children and adults presented with thyroid nodules.
Risk factors and management of a thyroidectomy are presented as well, and the challenges it poses for the surgeon who undertakes endocrine surgery.
The final chapter evaluates the association between Hashimoto's thyroiditis and differentiated thyroid cancer.
