    New to the board! Thyroid Nodules.

    Okay, so back in October I was experiencing a lot of fatigue.. went to the dr and the PA noticed something on my thyroid and sent me for an ultrasound which confirmed 2 nodules. One of them being 1 cm and the other a little under a cm. Anything 1 cm and over they recommend for a biopsy so they sent me to an ENT (I waited 6 months to actually go to the appointment) because I was scared and things just kept coming up. I went back to the ENT 2 weeks ago and they sent me for a 6 month follow up ultrasound.. results came back yesterday.
    below are 1st ultrasound... and then 2nd.

    CLINICAL HISTORY: fatigue, a benign neoplasm of the thyroid gland.
    COMPARISON: None available.
    PROCEDURE: Thyroid ultrasound.
    Right lobe: Diffusely heterogeneous echotexture.
    Dimensions: 4.3 cm CC x 1.5 cm AP x 1.8 cm transverse.
    Nodules: There is a 1.0 x 1.0 x 0.9 cm echogenic round nodule in
    the central right lobe.
    Left lobe: Diffusely heterogeneous echotexture.
    Dimensions: 4.2 cm CC x 1.7 cm AP x 1.5 cm transverse.
    Nodules: There is a 0.5 x 0.8 x 0.6 cm hypoechoic/cystic nodule in
    the medial anterior left lobe.
    Isthmus: 0.3 cm AP.
    Nodules: No discrete nodules.
    IMPRESSION: Bilateral thyroid nodules measuring 1.0 on the right and 0.8
    on the left.

    2nd ultrasound.. 6 months later

    HISTORY: Thyroid nodules. Follow up.
    STUDY: Sonogram of thyroid gland. 96 images submitted.
    COMPARISON: 10/09/2015
    FINDINGS: Slight increase in size of a well-demarcated hyperechoic solid
    nodule in the right lobe of thyroid gland since last exam. At this time
    further evaluation with biopsy is recommended. On the current exam this
    measures 1.2 x 0.9 x 1.16 cm.
    Heterogeneous echo pattern seen in both lobes of thyroid gland. Right
    lobe of thyroid gland measures 4.9 x 2 x 1.9 cm in left lobe of the
    thyroid gland measures 4.5 x 1.8 x 1.6 cm.
    There is a nodule in the left lobe of thyroid gland that measures up to
    8.6 mm in maximal diameter. This is a complex cystic nodule. Followup
    regarding this is suggested.
    1. Biopsy of the slightly enlarging solid nodule in the right obe of
    thyroid gland suggested. This measures over 1 cm in maximal diameter on
    the current exam.
    2. There are 2 nodules in the left lobe of the thyroid gland. 1 of the
    nodules measures up to 8.6 mm in maximal diameter and this is a complex
    cystic nodule that contains a solid component as well as a focal
    calcification within it. A followup regarding this is suggested

    ------ at this point it is what it is.. but i would love any input or what anyone thinks! Im waiting on a call back for the biopsy.
