Indeed 99% of nodules do not cause any other problems. They are just annoying. My experience with doctors and ultrasounds, etc, is that they want more money. The fact that they have been able to find nodules, just gives them another opportunity to do another ultrasound, therefore leading to more money in their pocket. However, he is correct. Only a biopsy will confirm cancer. But the fact that he isn't ordering a biopsy at this point is a good thing. He just wants to be cautious and check the nodules via the ultrasound.
