The results of studies using suppressive doses of L-T4 on benign solitary solid cold thyroid nodules have been conflicting. Recently, intranodular injection of absolute ethanol has been proposed as an effective treatment, but has been evaluated only in uncontrolled studies. Our objective was to evaluate the effect of two alternative medical treatment modalities, percutaneous ethanol injection therapy and L-T4, on the benign solitary solid cold thyroid nodule. In a prospective randomized… CONTINUE READING
