    Large benign nodule

    Hi everyone! I've recently done an fna and results showed that my nodule is benign. I am very relieved and happy about the results! My gp has referred me to a surgeon for consultation because of its size. My nodule measures 3.6 x 3.2 x 1.4. Is this large enough for a surgeon to recommend surgery to take it out? What are your thoughts or if you could share your experiences, it would be truly appreciated. What are the chances the fna was inaccurate in its findings? I've been reading that with nodules as big or bigger as mine, it's usually hard to say that it's truly benign because the fna only sampled a few of it's tissues. Is this information accurate?

    Thank you very much!!!!
