  1. Benign thyroid nodules class 11 are good candidates for Ablation. However, Class III will need more studies to be sure you don’t have a nodule with potential for thyroid cancer. A suspicious needle biopsy alone can lead to unnecessary thyroid surgery for a benign nodule. A suspicious molecular marker result for your class III cytology is still not a good way to avoid surgery for a benign nodule. Finally a PET/CT with low SUV function (<3 ) in the nodule is a good final way to avoid surgery with a benign nodule. Autonomous Functioning AFTN or Toxic Nodules.
