Thyroid Nodule Clinic at Penn

More than 12 million Americans have thyroid nodules that require medical evaluation. In addition, the annual incidence of thyroid cancer is rapidly rising and its rate of increase outpaces that of all other malignancies.

The thyroid nodule clinic at Penn combines the latest diagnostic and imaging technology with treatments for thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer for which Penn is known.

Susan Mandel, MD, is an international leader and expert in the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer. Dr. Mandel created the model for thyroid nodule evaluative services, and created Penn's thyroid nodule clinic, which is the only one of its kind in the tri-state area.

The thyroid nodule clinic is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of experts from endocrinology, radiology, surgery, nuclear medicine, pathology and cytology. Together, they diagnosis and evaluate patients – often providing preliminary reports the same day.
