Nowadays we use novel diagnostic equipment for lung cancer. Bronchoscopy was the tip of the arrow for diagnosis, however; ultrasound systems have brought a revolution. We have the radial-endobronchial ultrasound for peripheral lesions and the convex probe endobronchial ultrasound for central lesions. Ultrasound endoscopic systems can be used for the diagnosis of any lesion that can be approached from the airways. In the current manuscript we will present two methods for the biopsy of thyroid gland. The first method is using anesthisiological tools and the second tools from the ear, nose and throat department.
