Caption: Thyroid nodule. Light micrograph of a section through a microfollicular adenoma, or nodule, in a thyroid gland. The nodule is filled with small closely-packed follicles containing the hormone storage glycoprotein colloid (pink). The nodule can lead to an enlargement of the thyroid gland and overproduction of thyroid hormone.
