Nodules left untreated seem to have a slight growth potential in borderline iodine-deficient areas. Interstitial laser photo-coagulation (ilp) is a procedure for local hyperthermia and photocoagulation, allowing minimally invasive treatment of benign tumors, including thyroid nodules. The aim of these studies are to evaluate if ilp will be useful in reducing the volume of the benign thyroid nodule and thyroid function will be unaffected in euthyroid patients, and normalized in pretoxic- and toxic thyroid nodules. The investigations are listed below: 1. Randomized study of interstitial laser photocoagulation for benign solitary cold thyroid nodules – one versus two or three treatments 2. Randomized study of interstitial laser photocoagulation for benign solitary autonomous thyroid nodules – 131i versus laser ablation 3. Interstitial laser photocoagulation for benign thyroid cystadenomas. – a feasibility study. Study type: interventional study design: allocation: randomized, endpoint classification: safety/efficacy study, intervention model: parallel assignment, masking: open label, primary purpose: treatment interventions used in this clinical trial procedure: interstitial laser photocoagulation outcome measures for this clinical trial primary measures to evaluate the efficacy and feasibility repeated ilp treatments in a prospective randomised study where the nodule and thyroid volume are measured 1, 3, 6 and 12 months after the ilp. In the study of patients with a cystadenoma the measures will be done like wise, but also the recurrence of the cystic part will be measured. Patients with an autonomous functioning nodule measurements of thyroid function are performed 1,2, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months after the ilp or 131i therapy. Criteria for participation in this clinical trial inclusion criteria patients with a solitary solid thyroid nodule confirmed by ultrasonography patients with a solitary cystadenoma (cystic part more than 2 ml) confirmed by ultrasonography patients with an autonomous funct. buy cheap viagra buy cheap viagra online buy cheap viagra cheapest viagra online buy viagra online cheap viagra viagra online generic viagra
