Results :( MEEP! Need help Plz

Okay.. I went into see my endo today to get the results of my uptake scan...he is going to be calling me back after he talks to the radiologist. He said the two reports are confusing and he wants to be sure of what they saw. These are the two reports they did...one from an ultrasound one from the uptake scan.

Ultrasound:

FINDINGS: Both lobes are heterogeneous in texture, with the left lobe measuring 3.9x1.6x1.6 cm and the right lobe 3.8x1.3x1.7cm. The isthmus is 0.3 cm in AP diameter, within normal limits.

No mass in either lobe is seen. Inferior to the lower pole of the right lobe is a 1.1x0.7cm hypoechoic nodule with central echogenicity and minimal central blood flow on color-flow examination. This is likely a small lymph node.

Both lobes are hyperemic on color flow study.

IMPRESSION:

1. Heterogeneous, hyperemic gland without evidence of a discrete focal mass. Clinical and laboratory correlation are suggested.

2. 1.1-cm hypoechoic nodule with central echogenicity inferior to the lower pole of the right lobe near the trachea. This is likely a small lymph node.

(There you can see the uncertainty...says there is no mass then says there is)

The uptake scan:

FINDINGS: 6 and 24 hour uptakes of 16 and 26% respectively wich are normal values.

The scan shows slightly diminished activity in the lower pole of the right lobe consistent with a cold nodule. No other lesions are evident.

IMPRESSION: Normal radioiodine uptakes. Diminished activity lower pole right lobe consistent with the reported sonographic findings of a hypoechoic nodule.

So that is the reports they gave on the two tests. My endo is going to be calling me back today after he speaks with the radiologist. He said he is going to have him take a second look at the tests both at the same time. He wants to make sure of their findings. He says that he will probably want to biopsy it because it is cold, to be sure. Does this make sense to any of you?? Please share your wisdom, thoughts, opinions, etc etc... because I really need them THank you (editted out a typo )

*sigh* my doc called and told me that the radiologist told him it is a lymph node and he doesnt agree with it having anything to do with my thyroid and that to eliminate any concerns they are going to do a CT scan of my neck and bloodwork before I go back to TX ...Im releived
