Thyroid nodules are pathologies that are frequently encountered in general population and sometimes difficult to manage for patients and physicians. The most appropriate method for the management of these nodules is follow-up with ultrasonography (US) and fine-needle aspiration. This study investigated the correlation of suspicious nodules detected on US with cytopathological and histopathological results. Nodule size, nature, echo structure and blood supply, presence of peripheral halo, and presence of microcalcification in the nodule were compared in terms of malignancy and follicular patterns in a total of 55 patients. Statistically significant results were not found; however, we found similar rates to the literature in terms of the pathological diagnoses of malignancy and follicular pattern in patients suspected to have follicular neoplasia, which may be due to our hospital being an experienced center. We also think that further studies conducted with a higher number of patients and data on this subject can greatly contribute to the treatment and follow-up of thyroid cancer.
