Thyroid: Colloid Adenomatous Nodule Pushing the Trachea

A 48-year-old male with a thyroid nodule noted in February 2017. This thyroid nodule suddenly increased in size 2 weeks prior to consult when he developed coughs. On physical examination, there was a left thyroid nodule about 8 to 9 cm, cystic, pushing the trachea to the right. A needle aspiration was done getting about 70 cc of colloid fluid. After aspiration, the nodule was reduced to about 4 cm. The trachea was moved back to near midline. The diagnosis was a colloid adenomatous nodule. Medical suppressive treatment will be tried.
