My 17 yr old daughter needs thyroid surgery!

Thyroid ultrasound
Reason for examination: Thyromegaly

My daughter has had half her thyroid removed a few years ago..now the other half is giving her problems..except it seems to be more serious...can someone please explain to me the findings (below) from my daughters ultrasound. She has a doctor appoint with a surgeon a week from now. Todays date is Oct 18, 2011. Thank you to anyone that can help me understand..and if you think its a possibility that it might be cancer.

Findings: Sonographic evaluation reveals the right thyroid gland to be enlarged measuring 9 x 3.6 x 4.6 cm. It has a somewhat heterogeneous echo texture. No definite definable focal masses are seen within the right thyroid gland; however in the right neck adjacent to the enlarged thyroid, there is a large lymph node noted measuring 3.4 x 1.3 x 1.1 cm. No additional masses are seen adjacent to the right lobe of the thyroid gland.

Impression:
1 Surgical absence of the left lobe of the thyroid gland
2. Markedly enlarged right lobe of the thyroid gland with the dimensions as above. In addition, there is an enlarged lymph node noted adjacent to the right lobe that measures 3.4 x 1.3 x 1.1 cm. The findings are nonspecific. Consideration can be made for radioiodine thyroid scan as clinically indicated..
