I had a larger nodule on my left side and two smaller on my right. My first endo didn't want to biopsy it but because it was a solid nodule I knew that it should be. So I had to change endocrinologists and he felt I definately needed a biopsy.
The report came back atypical cells so now I have to have another one the end of this month and if the report is atypical again then he said I will need to have it removed.
Please insist on getting a biopsy. I waited almost a year to get it done and wish I hadn't. It is not cancerous yet but with abnormal cells it certainly could become at some time. I didn't even know I had them until my PCP did an ultrasound randomly on my thyroid.
