Septated cyst means it is subdivided into the smaller blisters with fluid 9cluster of smaller cysts common form of ovarian cysts, have not heard of these in the thyroid; the solid isoechoic nodule has 5 to 10 % chance of been malignant, most cysts are usually benign, among the hypoechoic nodules and complex cysts about 20 % are malignant.
