2nd biopsy in 6 months, is this the norm?

I had a fna in january that came back benign. With my history of breast cancer my endo just wanted to make sure that nothing was missed and so today I had another fna on a 2cmx3cm complex nodule. The dr doing the biopsy said that he saw nothing in the sample to indicate thyroid cancer so try not to worry. They also said that it will require ultra sounds every 6 months to make sure it isnt growing. My only other option is to have half my thyroid removed. This sounds drastic but would ensure that if it is cancer we would get it out. Just wondering if anyone else chose to have their thyroid removed after a benign biopsy.
