Yes, struma nodes
Explanation:
"Struma nodes" are benign masses that need to be distinguished from malignant ones.

Here's part of a medical article where "struma nodes" appears:

Group c) included those thyroid nodes which cytology classified as follicular neoplasms and for which histology was required to reach a diagnosis of malignancy or benignity; for this reason these cases were not used in the evaluation of diagnostic reliability. Of these 15 (20.5%) proved malignant and 58 (79.5%) benign (44 follicular adenomas and 14 micro-macrofollicular struma nodes).
