    Thyroid Nodule Treatment

    Hi I was told that I have a thyroid nodule which is now 10mm. I think the dimensions have grown since last time and the thyroid clinic told me to return in October to get it checked again. In the meantime I spoke to my GP and he said that 10mm is the starting point and now on they will monitor it roughly every year. I felt my Doctor was being very blasť, infact he acted as if I was asking too many questions and I was an irritating him. When I left I felt very unsupported and not very positive about the situation. I don't feel I can confide in my current doctor. Luckily the doctor at the Thyroid clinic advised me to go back in 6 months so this has eased my worries a little bit and I was wondering when I do go back to the Thyroid clinic if I should ask to have a biopsy? They also offer some kind of radiotherapy treatment to shrink the nodule? Does anybody know what the procedure is for nodules and what questions I should be asking to make sure I get the right treatment? Thanks! 🙂
