Abstract

Objective: This study aimed to study the comparison between Ultrasound and Fine Needle Aspiration results in surgical diseases of the thyroid gland. Materials and Methods: The variables recorded included gender, ultrasound test results, Fine Needle Aspiration results and surgical treatment used. Results: In our study, we had a 85.7% female prevalence. Most of the patients in their ultrasound results in our study had multinodular goiter in two lobes (26 patients, 37.1%). The FNA diagnosis results in our study was goiter in most of the cases (25 patients, 35.7%) and 11 patients (15.7%) had thyroid carcinoma (Papillary or anaplastic).
