Really worried, should I be?

Im really worried now about whats happening to me after reading stuff on the net.

On my doctors papers today for the scan I read 'Large thyroid nodule' as on theory and underneath 'Toxic' something as another theory.

I have read being male is more of a chance of malignancy and I have had a bad stomach.

I see the doctor tomorrow for scan results and I am getting more worried by the minute.

I had tests done about 9 months ago on my throat and nobody saw a 'goiter' then. Does that mean its grown quickly to be 'large' now?

Try not to worry too much...I know easier said than done.Do an Internet
search for toxic goiter...I don't know too much about it but I bet someone
here does and will come along soon to explain.

Also ask them to check you for Grave's Antibodies.
