Abstract

Objective: Thyroid nodules are frequent in the adult population. Thyroid fine-needle aspiration biopsy is performed for diagnosing cancerous nodules. It is suggested that biopsy-proven benign thyroid nodules should be followed up clinically, and if they grow, rebiopsy should be performed. However, certain growth criteria have not yet been defined.
