Has anyone had this new molecular test to determine if a nodule is benign or malignant prior to surgery? It looks like it could prevent many surgeries when a nodule is suspicious for follicuar/Hurthle cell cancer after a biopsy. Dr Bryan Haugen of U. of CO Hospital presented findings last month after a thyroid conference in Paris.
