Is it true that once a nodule reaches 4cm, surgical removal is recommended?

This is a matter of opinion, it depends on other clinical factors such as compressive symptoms, biopsy results, rate of change of the nodule and patient preference.  The argument is that the fine-needle aspiration biopsy may be less accurate for large nodules and typically I perform fine-needle aspiration at least twice on such cases if there is no other clear indication for surgery..
