The multinodular goiters
in our population had been diagnosed on the basis of either clinical palpation or an ultrasonographic finding of two or more thyroid nodules.
8221;[sup],, However, some nodules do not display typical benign or malignant features, and a great number of goiters
with fibrosis were evaluated as malignant nodules by mistake.
Best approach for posterior mediastinal goiter
removal: transcervical incision and lateral thoracotomy.

Five-year follow-up of a randomized clinical trial of total thyroidectomy versus Dunhill operation versus bilateral subtotal thyroidectomy for multinodular nontoxic goiter
131]I), hypothyroidism, and simple diffuse goiter
suggest a misunderstanding of our study findings.
In the United States, MNG is generally nonendemic and unrelated to iodine deficiency, as distinguished from endemic goiter
caused by iodine deficiency in other parts of the world.
75%) patients had various symptoms due to local pressure effects of the goiter
in the form of dyspnoea, dysphagia and hoarseness of voice, 63(11.
Patient with or with high probability for thyroid cancer, recurrent goiter
and those presenting with solitary thyroid nodules were excluded from the series.
The finding that LBPs perform better than do conventional smears for benign goiters
is not consistent with the suggestion some make that the key diagnostic features of watery colloid, larger-sized tissue fragments, or an inability to quantify the amount of colloid make LBPs suboptimal for the diagnosis of goiters

As common as goiters
were in Michigan, they were conversely rare in people and animals living near the East and West coasts.
can cause dysphagia or breathing difficulties due to local oesophageal or tracheal compression.
Although the incidence of post-ablative hypothyroidism was greater in patients with Graves' disease as compared to those with toxic nodular goiters
(70% vs 42%) , the difference did not reach statistical significance (p=0.
Pure intrathoracic goiters
do occur without extension from cervical thyroid.
