Thyroid lumps webinar

On-demand recorded 20 Apr 2021

Thyroid nodules are a common finding, with a palpable nodule occurring in approximately 7% of adults, and approximately 50% of adults have visible nodules on ultrasound. By developing an approach to investigation and the interpretation of results, GPs can determine those patients that require follow-up, and those that need referral. This webinar has been designed to improve patient outcomes and enhance your clinical skills in the investigation and management of patients with a thyroid mass. This webinar will explore the common causes of thyroid nodules and an approach to diagnosis and management. This webinar provides the practical clinical skills to identify and distinguish between benign and malignant masses, management options and indications for referral.
