Question multinodular vs. single nodule??

Sorry for all the questions - this has hit me like a truck (I'm sure the same for everyone)....I read in a book that a multi-nodular lump is less likely to be cancerous and a single node is more likely -

The endo's report states: I have one nodule (7 x 8 x 18 mm) (separable into a 8 x 8 mm and a 10 x 10 mm)....so, is it a multi-nodule or a single??

Thanks

It sounds like a single nodule from what you posted. Don't go scaring yourself for nothing. I had a single nodule and all I did was to scare myself out of my mind. I had the biopsy and it was benign. I realized at that time that I was reading too much info and that I needed to STOP! Keep in mind that 90% are NOT cancerous, that is a big percentage in your favor. So try to relax and not obsess about it (too much lol). Good Luck to you.

Thanks for your reply to all my questions - I think maybe I just assumed he would repeat the ultrasound in a month....but he did say biopsy in a month...thanks for telling my your numbers are like mine and no cancer....I REALLY appreciate it - I could drive myself crazy pretty easily....
