I was diagnosed by ultrasound on wednesday and am now waiting to be referred for a needle biopsy. Apparently I have one large nodule (2x3cms) on the right side, and several smaller nodules on the left. Ive read that most of these nodules are benign and are simply fluid filled cysts. However Im now panicing, as its awful having to wait to find out what I have! (Am a terrible worrier!). does anyone have any experience of this condition please, or any advice you can give? Thanks, Liz

    I was diagnosed with one nodule in September that was measuring at 3.5 cm

    try not to worry I was worrying and was making myself panic the procedure was fine and the nurses made me feel very comfortable with the biopsy they did warn me it may bruise but I didn't mine turned out to be benign and I have to go back in 6 months for another biopsy and scan but other than that mine causes me no discomfort or trouble hope this helps if you have any other questions feel free to askĀ

    Hi,

    I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's autoimmune thyroditis and noduls, lots of them a few years ago. The noduls were small but they conntinue to grow all the time. I had liquid taken out from the noduls and biopsy, all was fine. I will be having a total thyrodiectomy very soon because the noduls have grown and this is the only way to go. I can not wait to have the op! It will be much easier and I will have more energy, but will conntinue to take levothyroxine.

    So, do not worry, these kind of noduls are benign most of the time.

      Hi there, thanks for replying! Ive literally just got home from having the biopsy (ouch!). My consultant was muttering about Hashimotos so maybe we are both going down the same route! Best of luck with your op, I imagine it will be a relief to get rid of the thyroid gland altogether!
