Thyroid nodules are very common, affecting between 1 in 3 and 1 in 2 of us by middle age. The vast majority of thyroid nodules are benign, but a few are malignant and so a thorough assessment of all thyroid nodules is essential. I initially trained in thyroid ultrasound in the UK. I now have an ultrasound machine at the Waitemata Specialist Centre and can perform thyroid ultrasound and fine needle aspiration biopsy in a single visit.
