Background: When US characteristics and the diameter of a thyroid nodule (TN) justify further evaluation to rule out or to establish the diagnosis of thyroid cancer (TC), fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy for cytology (FNAC) is indicated. A major limitation of FNAC is the high rate of indeterminate significance (~30%) results, which require further evaluation. Although recently introduced molecular testing contributed to the ability to differentiate benign from malignant TNs...
