Thyroid nodules are frequently found in the overall population. The clinical relevance of evaluating thyroid nodules is to rule out thyroid cancer. After history, physical examination, and TSH determination, neck ultrasonography is the most important tool to evaluate the risk of a particular nodule to be cancer, and to select patients for FNA. This chapter discusses these aspects.

Keywords: Thyroid nodules, thyroid cancer, evaluation methods.
