2017: The Year that non-surgical methods have moved to be first line treatment for benign thyroid nodules and recurrent thyroid cancer lymph nodes.You may not have heard from your physician that these procedures are available to you today. Before you follow your primary and local endocrinologists referral to his surgeon to remove your large unsightly and symptomatic nodular goiter, consider the alternatives. If you have a nodule with significant fluid you may be a candidate for ethanol ablation (PEI). The simple removal of the fluid usually fails as a definite treatment leaving surgery of PEI. PEI is done as an outpatient. It takes less than 30 minutes and is usually without complications or pain. The other simple procedure radiofrequency ablation RFA can also rid you of a symptoms of large solid nodule and correct cosmetic problems as well.It also requires no surgery and no hospitalization. Finally, even thyroid cancer surgery for recurrent lymph node cancer can be replaced when a repeat neck surgery is recommended. PEI can be done in less than 30 minutes as injected cancer lymph nodes are treated without another hospitalization and major surgery.
