I have a 1.8cm well differentiated single nodule/thyroid. So far I have had 1 ultrasound which identified the nodule and 1 ultrasound with FNA. The FNA as expected resulted in an inconclusive report, these FNA methods are so flawed they are futile in many cases. When I went to the appointment with ENT to discuss the above results, immediately he insisted on the removal of the nodule with operation! and wanted to rush me in in only 12 days?? I queried this and asked was there any evidence in the results that suggest cancer? to this he replied " thats the problem" we do not know unless we operate then send for pathology. After much research i have found that over 50% of the population have a thyroid nodule and that of those 95% are benign!! im flabbergasted that a professional would want to deem it necessary to preform a removal of a major gland given the " no evidence of cancer results" your sound advice please?
