    2 solid thyroid nodules 1 cyst thyrax med for hypoactive thyroid

    My latest ultra sound revealed 2 solid thyroid nodules; on right lobe is echogenic .6x.4x.5cm; on right midpole is a well defined hypoechoic nodule .9x.6x.8cm; at left midpole is a cystic nodule .5x.6.2cm. I am a breast cancer suvivor and have hypoactive thyroid.

    My recent TSH level is elevated 4.97ulU afterwhich it became 3.05ulU after 3 weeks of TSH test. My T3,T4 tests remain normal. My surgical-oncologist advised me to take 1 thyrax 25mcg daily for life since I have a hypoactive thyroid and that my my nodules seem benign. He also said theres no need for thyroid scan. Will thyrax help to prevent possible malignancy of the nodules?
