I want to say 240.9 only because if you look under mass in ICD -9 book down where it says substernal and right under there says thyroid -see also goiter 240.9 -but this may be helpful

Associated ICD-9 Diagnostic Codes

226 Benign tumor of thyroid
193 Primary malignant tumor of thyroid
198.89 Secondary malignant tumor of thyroid
234.8 In situ tumor of thyroid
237.5 Tumor of thyroid - unspecified
240.0 Goiter, specified as simple
240.9 Goiter, unspecified
241 Non-toxic goiter
241.9 Unspecified non-toxic nodular goiter
242.0 to 242.9 Toxic diffuse goiter

The nodule is a small mass with firm or hard consistency where you can get to its edges or margins . It can be a benign or malignant neoplasm. But the description of the original thread is "Thyroid mass ",. It can be a huge or medium or small , or cystic, or soft or firm or hard or irregular or regular OR of any, away from a description. with this statement of thyroid mass, I would like to go only with all its uncertainity, what I said before, until a biopsy taken and reported
