In the evaluation of thyroid nodules for malignancy, the size of the nodule has been a cause for concern, mainly because the size—if it is a carcinoma—directly influences the staging. In addition, larger nodules in other organs, such as the adrenal gland, are more likely to be malignant. However, the data on size as a determinant of carcinoma in a thyroid nodule are conflicting (1-3).

Introduction. The thyroid nodule is a common entity. While autopsy data indicate a 50% prevalence of thyroid nodules larger than one centimeter in patients without clinical evidence of thyroid disease, the prevalence of palpable nodules is only 4 to 7%, (1, 2).Ultrasonography is far more sensitive than palpation, as it detects nodules of any size in up to 67% of the general population ().

Exactly--most types of thyroid cancer are found when you remove the lobe and see if the cells are encapsulated in the nodule--also, for other types, a needle biopsy only takes a very tiny sample of cells on the needle biopsy---if you have a large nodule/tumor mass, it isn't going to tell you what the rest of the cells are like, just the ones that you have drawn out.
