How to Identify Whether Thyroid Nodules Are Benign or Malignant?

Generally speaking, the diagnosis of thyroid nodules is benign or malignant, can be judged by the following 4 points:

  1. Boundary is not clear
  2. Micro calcification
  3. Internal blood flow disturbance
  4. Low echo

If none of the above four points matches, do not worry, the possibility of begnign nodules is very big. If 1-2 match, it may be malignant, it can be confirmed by a piqure. And if more than 3 match, the thyroid nodules are very likely to be malignant.

In addition to the above four points, we can also diagnose by:

  • whether there is adhesion with the surrounding tissue
  • whether there is no lymph node metastasis
  • whether the nodules increase rapidly in the short term
  • the growth mode (usually the growth mode of malignant nodules is vertical)
  • the size of the nodules (suggested surgery if the size of nodules is more than 50px)

High TSH value can make thyroid nodules grow, so people who have thyroid nodules should reduce their TSH value appropriately, between 0.5-1.0 is a ideal value, and the best way to control TSH value is diet treatment, please click to know how.
