    A change will be made to the current recommendations of irradiating anything that looks like a nodule in your thyroid using X-rays and CT scans "just to make sure".

    "...Nodule growth is regarded as a possible predictor of malignancy,” said Filetti. “This was not confirmed in our study. If a nodule is benign it is very likely that it will remain benign during follow-up, even if it grows.” While screening nodules is crucial for early cancer detection, the ATA reports that more than 90 percent of nodules remain noncancerous. Nodule growth was thought to predict which nodules would develop cancer."
