What is the best approach to goiter for euthyroid patients?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
A detailed history and exam, confirmation of euthyroid status, and imaging when appropriate is the best approach to euthyroid patients with thyroid enlargement in regions where goiters are not endemic. Ultrasound imaging is recommended in any case of diagnostic uncertainty. Evaluate dominant or suspicious nodules further, while diffuse goiters without symptoms require no further evaluation and can be followed clinically (strength of recommendation [SOR]: C, expert opinion).
