Case Report

Solitary thyroid metastasis from colon cancer: a rare case report

Malignant metastases to the thyroid are rare and are even rarer from a colorectal primary. As these metastases are often asymptomatic, they are usually discovered incidentally on imaging performed as follow-up for the primary tumour. In this report, we present a case of metastatic sigmoid adenocarcinoma to the thyroid diagnosed and treated at our institution.

Keywords: thyroid metastasis, radiological follow-up, ultrasound imaging, fine needle aspiration (FNA)
