Depending on the size of your nodule, I was told by a tech that they have to biopsy if the growth is 1 cm or larger, so keep that in mind when you have your ultrasound. Good Luck!
KVGirl:

When you say heart palpation's how fast is your heart rate mine goes to 130 at times and pounds practically out of my chest. That puts you at risk for a blood clot to. Once I got to 150 the heart isn't pumping right and it keeps blood then what happens it throws it out in the form of a clot. It's dangerous to have heart palpation's of 150 and above. This scares me! Thanks for sharing. Also is the biopsy painful???? How is it done under local anesthetics?
