    Thyroid Hypoechoic Nodule

    This year my thryroid ultrasound shows a "partially calcified 6 x 6 x 5 mm very hypoechoic solid nodule with punctate internal echogenicities that were not evident previously" (lab report wording). I have been getting thyroid ultrasounds every year since 2015 when the first nodules were found, but they have never gotten any larger & actually many were smaller.

    Labs done this year show TSH at 0.015 (range 0.465 - 4.680 uTU/mL) with Free T3 & T4 levels normal (above midrange). Last year my TSH was 1.15 & my T3 & T4 were a bit lower but still around midrange, so there is a significant difference this year. Yet my doctor doesn't seem concerned & just says to wait & do another ultrasound in a year.

    Should I be concerned with this new nodule & the major drop in TSH or just sit back & wait until next year's results? I've read numerous articles that say a needle biopsy should be done & then a natural treatment article that says not to do a needle biopsy because of the possibility of leaking fluids into other tissues, so I'm not sure what I should do at this point.

    I am a 68 year old female & have been taking glandular thyroid .65 mm twice a day since 2017. I prefer natural remedies if they really work, eat mainly organic, do not take any prescribed medicines, & other than the thyroid have never had a medical issue.
