Diagnoses included multinodular
goiter in 3 patients and cancer in 7 patients.
Individuals suffering from multinodular
goiter or subclinical hypothyroidism have a slight risk of developing Graves' disease.

It has been demonstrated that up-to 44% of the clinically solitary nodules are, in fact, multinodular
on ultrasonography and isotope scanning.
In addition to demographic data, we compiled information on the 8 patients' risk factors for thyroid cancer, ultrasonographic findings, the presence or absence of thyrotoxic symptoms, and whether the patient had an autonomously functioning toxic nodule (AFTN), Graves disease, or a toxic multinodular

Examination showed a soft non tender multinodular
skin coloured lesion of 1.
FNAB was done using palpation alone for all solitary nodules and with ultrasound guidance in multinodular
In a study, a case with HS due to a benign multinodular
goiter was operated and the patient's symptoms were resolved after the surgery.
Coverage progresses from the normal thyroid and assessment of thyroid structure and function, through thyrotoxicosis, hypothyroidism, nontoxic diffuse and multinodular
goiter, and thyroid cancers.
