Abstract :

Background: The common presenting problem like Solitary thyroid nodules (STN) are mostly prevalent in adults. Aims and Objectives: To Study prevalence pattern of malignancy in solitary thyroid nodule at tertiary health care centre. Methodology: This was a cross–sectional study carried out in the patients of thyroid presenting with solitary thyroid nodule at tertiary health care during the one year period i.e. Feuary 2017 to Feuary 2018. All the patients presented with solitary nodule were after written explained consent were enrolled to study. All details of the patients like age, sex noted. All patients with solitary nodule undergone USG and Histopathological evaluation. The findings were entered in excel sheet and analyzed by Excel for windows 10. Result: In our study the majority of the patients were in the age group of 30– 40 – 29.41%, 40–50 – 25.49%, 50–60 – 21.57%, >60 – 17.65%, 20–30 – 5.88%. The majority of the patients were Female i.e. 58.82%, Male were –41.18%. On USG – Benign lesions were 84.31%, Suspicious were 5.88%, Malignant were 9.80% on histopathology Benign were 92.16% and Malignant were 7.84% As per histopathology the majority of the lesions were Colloid Goitre –29.41%, Follicular Adenoma–25.49%, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis– 19.61%, Hemorrhagic Cyst– 15.69%, Papillary carcinoma– 3.92%, Follicular carcinoma– 3.92%, MNG– 1.96%.Conclusion: It can be concluded from our study that majority of the patients were in the age group of 30–40 , The majority of the patients were FemaleAs per histopathology, majority of the lesions were Colloid Goitre , Follicular Adenoma, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis etc.
