Thyroid nodules are very common in the general population, but only 5% are malignant. We report the case of a man presenting with nodular goiter, and multiple swellings over the scalp and arm, with pathological fractures. On evaluation by fine needle aspiration, these swellings were found to be metastases from follicular thyroid carcinoma. The patient underwent total thyroidectomy, radioiodine ablation, resection of the bone lesion, and L-thyroxine suppressive therapy, with no recurrence / metastasis over a five-year follow-up.
