Very Nervous

I had an ultrasound done of my thyroid and I need to now go for a biopsy. Could you please tell me if I should be concerned with the report below:

The thyroid gland is heterogeneous in echotexture. The right lobe measures 5.5 x 2.1 x 1.7 cm. The left lobe measures 5.6 x 1.6 x 1.5 cm. The isthmus measures 3 mm. There is a 1.8 cm heterogeneous solid nodule in the upper pole right lobe. There is a 1 cm hypoechoic solid nodule in the lower pole right lobe. There are multiple additional subcentimeter nodules within the right lobe, measuring up to 8 mm. There is a 1.3 cm hypoechoic nodule in the upper pole left lobe. There are multiple small cystic nodules within the left lobe thyroid, measure up to 5 mm.

Heterogeneous thyroid gland with multiple nodules. The dominant solid nodule in the upper pole right lobe, measuring 1.8 cm. Multiple additional smaller nodules. If clinically indicated, further evaluation with ultrasound-guided FNA for the dominant nodule can be performed.

Re: Very Nervous

There are many different reasons for these nodules and they all aren't cancerous. A FNA is uncomfortable but can give you piece of mind. All though they are not 100% full proof than rule out cancers. Monitor the nodules closely with your doc. Speak up if you have any concerns or symptoms immediately. I did and it saved my life. I am in complete remission from lymphoma. The FNA did not catch the cancer but I spoke up when my symptoms changed. That led to the diagnosis and treatment. Good luck.
