Until some 25 to 30 years ago, thyroidectomy dominated the treatment of practically all thyroid diseases except deficiency states. Today its application is limited almost entirely to the management of solitary thyroid nodules and cancer of the thyroid. This is because classic colloid goiter has virtually disappeared (possibly because basic foodstuffs have been supplemented with iodides) and because effective nonoperative therapies for Grave’s disease and nontoxic adenomatous goiter have been developed.
