Answer

See the list below:

  • Indications for thyroid lobectomy

    • Biopsy of a solitary thyroid nodule suggestive of malignancy

    • Management of compressive or cosmetic symptoms due to a multinodular goiter

    • Management of a well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma in a low-risk patient (This is controversial.)
