Özet

Introduction: Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is commonly used for histopathological evaluation of thyroid nodules and frequently for nodules larger than 1 cm. However, the indications of FNAB are also discussed for the subcentimeter nodules, in recent years. The aim of this study is to investigate the necessity of FNAB for subcentimeter nodules.
