The management of a benign thyroid nodule includes follow-up until its size requires a surgical or alternative treatment. To date, it is difficult or impossible to predict the size changes of a benign nodule in a given patient because no specific growth parameters exist. RAS mutations have been described in thyroid adenomas and hyperplastic benign nodules.

Abstract

The management of a benign thyroid nodule includes follow-up until its size requires a surgical or alternative treatment. To date, it is difficult or impossible to predict the size changes of a benign nodule in a given patient because no specific growth parameters exist. RAS mutations have been described in thyroid adenomas and hyperplastic benign nodules.
