Most of the thyroid malignant nodules are differentiated thyroid cancer, which require surgery and most of them can be cured.Advanced lesions need positive comprehensive treatment to prevent the distant metastasis of cancer.Common causes of thyroid nodules include iodine deficiency, excessive hyperplasia of normal thyroid tissue, degeneration, radiation history, and thyroiditis. There are also some potential pathogenic factors such as trace element selenium deficiency and obesity.
