Thyroid nodules are common thyroid abnormalities, and their management often requires molecular testing to determine if they are benign or malignant. These molecular tests rely on our understanding of the genetic abnormalities that drive the development and progression of thyroid nodules. Advances in thyroid molecular genetics have revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid nodules, enabling precise and tailored patient care. This article will discuss the recent developments in thyroid molecular genetics and their implications for the diagnosis and management of thyroid nodules:
