February 3, 2015
By 1/30/2015, Ushiku city government of Ibaraki announced 48 of 89 children were given A2 or B diagnosis in their thyroid inspection.
A2 is given when they find thyroid nodule (≦5.0mm) or cysts (≦20.0mm), B is given when they find thyroid nodule (≧ 5.1mm) or cysts (≧20.1mm).

Since last August, 50 more children had the inspection. 40 children were given A2, 8 children were given B in total.
Only less than half of the testees turned out to be free of any abnormality.

Ushiku city government states 40 children of A2 don’t need any follow-up inspection.
