About this course

Thyroid nodules are relatively common and are usually found incidentally. The key objective is to differentiate a benign nodule from a malignant lesion. This e-learning module provides an overview on thyroid nodules, from screening, counselling in primary care, and referring to a specialist, and summarizes the recent advances in diagnosis and thyroid nodules treatment.
