thyroid cyst

thyroid cyst

A generic term for any lesion that has a cystic appearance by imaging (ultrasound, CT, MRI), regardless of whether it proves to be a true cyst (i.e., lined by epithelium). Thyroid cysts are common and often associated with multinodular goitre, haemorrhage (recent or old) and neoplasms.
