Background: Thyroid nodules commonly occur in the general population. They are often discovered incidentally. Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is the usual practice for correctly diagnosing these nodules.
Case presentation: The patient was a 24 year female. She presented with a thyroid nodule that was discovered incidentally as an otherwise asymptomatic neck mass. When her husband noticed the nodule, he tightly pressed it between his fingers, because of which haemorrhage and a regional wound resulted. In the 2 months and 1 year follow up, there was no nodule in the thyroid, and only a hyperpigmented scar was left at the previous nodule site.
Conclusion: The unusual and exceptional approach of this patient's husband to the thyroid nodule resulted in its disappearance due to external physical pressure. I have not found any report of this kind in my entire search in the medical literature data bases.
