7 Nodules, Normal Blood Work *Please Help!

*any and all help or suggestions are welcome* I am so confused and frustrated.

I have posted a couple threads here, but I just picked up the results from my UltraSound I had on 4/2 with the Endocrinologist. Based on these results she sent me for an I 123 Thyroid Uptake scan which I had yesterday and completed this morning. Waiting for the results of that and also more blood work. She is testing my Tgab, Cortisol, Insulin and Glucose.

I have Hypothyroid Symptoms. Nearly every symptom but bloodwork is all normal:
SH 2012 ~ 0.970 ( 0.350-5.500)
TSH ~ 0.750 uiu/mL (0.350-5.500)
Free T4 ~ 1.0 ng/dl (0.7-1.5)
Free T3 ~ 3.4 pg/mL (2.3-4.2)
Ferritin ~ 6.1 ng/ mL (10.0-291.0)
TPOAB ~ <10 IU/mL ( <35 )

My Ultrasound results are as follows. (I have 2 very large nodules and 2 nodules that note INTENSE Vascular flow) All measurements are in cm.

Right lobe heterogeneous Width 3.5 ~ Depth 1.5 ~ Length 4.5 mild to moderate Vascular Flow

Isthmus heterogeneous Depth 0.3

Left lobe heterogeneous Width 1.9 ~ Depth 1.7 ~ Length 4.2 Mild to moderate vascular flow

Left inferior heterogeneous, hypoechoic, irregular margins width 0.9 ~
depth 0.8 INTENSE vascular flow

Left Middle heterogeneous, spongiform width 1.3 ~ depth 1.2

Left sup hypoechoic width 1.3 ~ depth 1.2

Right heterogeneous/isoechoic, irregular margins width 1.3 ~ depth 0.7 ~ Length 1 INTENSE vascular flow.

Can anyone help me read these results?

Should I be worried about Cancer?

Should I be concerned I have all the symptoms of Hypothyroid with no positive test results?

Could this be secondary Hypothyroid?

Why do I have nodules?

Dr.'s notes say I have no sign of Hypothyroid yet. She says that if the I 123 test comes back abnormal she will biopsy me, but if not she only wants to see me back in 6 months. I already have another appointment made with a different Dr. for a second opinion and as a back up plan.

Thank you in advance for helping.
