Here's my whole story. I have Hashimoto's Disease -- no big deal. I take .25 mcg of synthroid daily and my levels are perfectly normal. I also have nodules on my thyroid -- something I believe is very common with Hashimoto's. Can you confirm this? I am told these nodules can come and go. I have an annual ultrsound. Last year I had all nodules biopsied. They were all benign. I just had my annual ultrasound. One of the nodules from last year didn't even show up, but a nodule on the left side has grown. My endocrinologist said to wait for four months and then do an ultrasound again. If it grows, she said my thyroid would need to come out because it was probably cancer. However, she has no plans of doing a biopsy in 4 months because she said that the biopsy if benign might not be correct. Is this right? I could undergo a surgery without even needing it. And if the nodule is benigh, why can't you just take it our -- not the whole thyroid? I'm very scared. Please help.
