Thyroid nodular disease. The thyroid gland is fairly homogeneous but nodules are frequent. Nodules greater than 1. Thyroid nodular disease, the etiology of which is multifactorial, encompasses lesions, from the small incidentaloma to large multinodular intrathoracic goiter.
The main diagnostic issues are related to the functional and morphological characterization using TSH measurements and image methods. Fine needle aspiration biopsy is the method of choice to rule out malignancy, the incidence of which is similar in single or multinodular goiter MNG.
MNG treatment can be surgical or radioactive iodine I could be indicated if the I uptake is adequate. The benign single thyroid nodule, "cold" or "hot" at scintigraphy, can be treated with percutaneous ethanol injection. The "hot" nodule can also be treated by surgery or I.

Multinodular goiter has been criticized as being a somewhat unhelpful term as some multinodular thyroids are not enlarged, resulting in the unwieldy term "multinodular non-enlarged thyroid" 7. Patients are usually euthyroid, but the nodules may also be hypo- or hyperfunctioning, resulting in systemic symptoms from hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, respectively. Multinodular goitres develop from simple goitres as a result of repeated instances of stimulation and involution 4. A nodule in multinodular goiter may harbor malignancy. A family history of malignancy and prior neck radiation exposure are known risk factors 2. Sonography remains the first radiological investigation to screen the nodules and look for any suspicion of malignant change in the nodules which is not uncommon.
