Aug 15th 2014 at 10:21 PM

Goiter: diffuse and nodular called goiter enlarged thyroid gland. If the gland is enlarged uniformly and ultrasound is not marked changes in its structure, it is called diffuse goiter. Typically, thyroid dysfunction in diffuse goiter occurs. Adequate therapy, matched individually with the study of the level of thyroid hormones, allows you to fully normalize the size and volume of the thyroid gland and relieve the patient from diffuse goiter.

The diagnosis of "nodular goiter" is placed in the case of palpation and ultrasonography delineated tumor sites in the thyroid tissue. Nodules can be either single or multiple. Nodular goiter is often accidental discovery, revealed in the prophylactic examination, because, as a rule, thyroid nodules are not accompanied by pain

However, from this, they are no less dangerous, as there are nodes that can throw the blood excessive amounts of thyroid hormone (toxic adenoma). How to treat nodular goiter? In order to identify competent and only correct tactics of treatment of nodular goiter, it is necessary to appoint a full examination of the thyroid gland, including expedient to PTAB (puncture needle aspiration biopsy - a puncture) under ultrasound guidance. Conduct this study in an outpatient setting by a qualified doctor is safe, virtually painless, and it is imperative to establish the correct diagnosis. Having information about the cells that make up the nodal education, we can predict how it will behave in the future, as well as prescribe adequate treatment
