A case of 25-year-old man presented with a solitary nodule
on the scalp.
The diagnosis was multinodular goiter in 62 (60%), solitary nodule
in 18 (17%) and hyperthyroid goiter in 17 (16%) patients, recurrent goitor in 5 (5%) and thyroid carcinoma in 2 (2%) patients.
Also, according to result it was found that, in a multinodular thyroid disease, presence of calcification favours benign lesion but if a solitary nodule
shows the presence of calcification, there is high chances of malignancy.
However, there are no publications that studied about the efficacy of DEB-TACE prior to surgery in large solitary nodule
A radiologic evaluation reported multiple nodules in 87% of cases, 70% bilateral and 17% unilateral, with a solitary nodule
found only in 13% of all patients .

(3) In a clinical study of 1290 patients diagnosed with prostate cancer, 48 patients had lung metastases, with only 11 patients (0.86%) having solitary nodule
. (4) There have been several reports of isolated multiple pulmonary metastases; (5) however, none have reported lung metastases of prostate cancer and primary lung cancer detected at the same time.
Skin metastasis can present most commonly as a solitary nodule
with or without ulceration, a cluster of nodules, an erythematous papule, or a bulging mass.
It typically appears as a papule or solitary nodule
, euchromatic or red in the sole or lateral border of the feet, corresponding to 2/3 of the cases; as with other eccrine gland tumors, a pigmented variant of rare presentation exists (2,3) other sites affected are: the distal extremities, palms, and fingers, and less likely in the forearms, eyelids, thorax, scalp, external auditory canal, hip, gluteus, and abdomen (4-9).
The most common radiographic findings were multiple nodules and/or masses, solitary nodule
or mass, and consolidations, which could be seen in 58.3%, 25.0%, and 25.0% of patients, respectively.
Examination revealed a solitary nodule
measuring 4 x 4 cm in the right lobe.
LCA may appear as multiple or solitary nodule
lesion of 1-11 cm (8).
Preoperative thyroid US (Esaote Technos- MPX and 10 MHz probe; Geneva, Italy) was performed in all patients and US findings were defined as thyroiditis, multinodular goiter (MNG) and solitary nodule
. The number and size of nodules were recorded.
Thyroid ultrasonography was performed and a 3 cm solid nodule on the right lobe and a 1 cm solitary nodule
on the left lobe were observed.
Alexander's hospital found that a woman who presents with a solitary nodule
that is found on ultrasound to be completely solid with punctate calcifications has a 33% chance of that nodule being cancerous, while a woman who presents with a multiple nodules found on ultrasound to be mixed solid and cystic with rim or coarse calcifications has a much lower risk--about 6% (J.
