Abstract

Unsuspected thyroid cancer can be detected in multinodular goiter (MNG) where the risk of malignancy is 7-9%. Fine needle aspiration (FNAc) is performed in case of suspicious findings on ultrasound. With benign FNAC results there is no need for surgery unless the patient has pressure symptoms or cosmetic concerns, but the risk of overlooked malignancy is always present. We present the case of a patient with unexpected detection of papillary thyroid cancer on thyroid scan.
