A woman in her 60s presented with bilateral thyroid nodules discovered by her endocrinologist 2 weeks prior to being referred to an otolaryngologist. Her medical history was remarkable for hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, depression, and gastroesophageal reflux disease. She had a history of smoking but quit in 1998.
