Waiting on thyroid biopsy results - very scared

I am a 46 year old female. I had a biopsy this week on my thyroid. A nodule was discovered by accident on an MRI. An ultrasound revealed 4 nodules on my right thyroid. 3 are small, 1 is 2.13 cm, some hypoechoic features, some solid, and some microcalcifications. I'm scared to death because I've read that microcalcifications make it more likely to be cancer. I have no symptoms, can't feel the nodule, my thyroid hormone levels are normal, and no antibodies for hashimotos. I had my iodine levels tested and they are low, although not extreme.

I'm panicking really badly and I have to wait several more days for my results. Any reassurance would be appreciated.

Please no responses if yours was cancer. I need to feel some hope. I'm suffering from severe anxiety over this.
