A thyroid nodule is a discrete lesion distinct from the surrounding (...) thyroid parenchyma. Enlargement of other nearby anatomical structures, such as the parathyroid glands or regional lymph nodes, as well as branchial cleft and thyroglossal duct cysts, may sometimes be confused with thyroid nodules. Thyroid nodules may be palpable at presentation or may be incidentally detected during an imaging procedure (40% are self-identified, 30% are physician-identified, and 30% are incidentally discovered on imaging Mevawalla N, McMullen T, Sidhu S, et al.

Thyroid function testing Thyroid function testing - Medical information | BMJ Best Practice You'll need a subscription to access all of BMJ Best Practice Search  Thyroid function testing Last reviewed: February 2019 Last updated: February 2018 Summary Thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and tri-iodothyronine (T3) are produced, stored, and secreted by the thyroid gland. These hormones, particularly T3, play a major role in multiple biological and metabolic processes. They act by binding to thyroid (...) receptors that are distributed in almost every organ. Typically, this process regulates gene transcription and the subsequent production of various proteins that are involved in development, growth, and cellular metabolism.

Thyroid dysfunction can result when (...) any part of this process is affected, and is usually characterised by the presence of high or low levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH, secreted by the pituitary gland) and free thyroid hormones. Causes of thyroid disorders include autoimmunity (e.g., Graves' disease), infections (e.g., post-viral inflammation), other systemic medical conditions, medications (e.g., lithium, amiodarone), nutritional excesses or deficiencies (e.g., of iodine), tumours (thyroid, or rarely pituitary), trauma
