Focal thyroid incidentaloma: evidence-based management.

Abstract


A growing number of thyroid nodules are detected incidentally during imaging tests performed for unrelated reasons and constitute both a clinical and public health problem. Due to scarce information and lack of long term follow-up studies of individuals with subclinical nodules, there are no consensual guidelines for the management and follow-up of these cases leading to different approaches by different clinician's and a lot of controversy issues surrounding this matter.
