    Question Cystic Nodule size changes.

    I have had a large nodule on the right side of my thyroid for over two years. Three months ago I finally went to an endo and agreed to try taking low dose synthroid.

    Two weeks ago, the nodule was HUGE! My daughter said it looked like I swallowed a golf ball. I didn't call the endo because I already had an appointment for next week. Well.... as of this week, the nodule has shrunken down to the smallest it has EVER been! It is barely noticeable.

    The purpose of my endo visit next week was to do an ultrasound to monitor if the nodule shrunk in response to the synthroid. UM it is an obvious YES. I have no intention of going off the meds... I have a company physical in two weeks where they will do blood work including thyroid numbers (for free).

    SO, should I even bother keeping the appointment? Would you?
