Abstract

Ideal management of solitary nodule thyroid has remained controversial. Evaluation in addition to clinical assessment include a list of investigations, reliability of which involves great uncertainty. In this study of one hundred clinical solitary nodule thyroid operated at Mayo Hospital, Lahore, the role of clinical examination and investigations is evaluated and correlated with operative findings. Clinical examination failed to differentiate solitary from dominant nodule in 26% cases. There was overall 14% incidence of malignancy. FNAC proved highly accurate with only 6% false negative and 0% false positive prediction for malignant nodules.
