At least 2-4 times a year patients present with extremely large Goiter nodules. They have seen many endocrinologists and surgeons before me.They claim for different reasons not to want surgery even though all the prior physicians told them to have surgery. Rather than having the surgery when the nodule was smaller they did nothing for years. When they developed symptoms or the nodule became very large they found me site and came to see if they could have alternative therapy. They covered the large nodule with a neck scarf. The treatment of solid nodules require multiple sessions with RFA. Very large cysts usually can be treated with one session with ethanol.

Two examples of patient’s fear of surgery caused them to postpone therapy for years as the nodule slowly grew.
Another patient had a 1000 cc cyst she allowed to grow to massive size before she came to me for ethanol ablation.
