Normal Blood work - Abnormal Ultra sound

Thyroid blood work all normal, ultra sound found "Multiple solid and cystic nodules bilateral largest 1.6 x .9 x 1.0" Internist referred me to surgeon, who is scheduling February 2013.  Also referred to hematologist this Tuesday. Mentioned Lymphoma... but didn't focus on the subject.  Trying to to worry... not sure whats going on.  Had weight loss 13lbs, severe fatigue, swollen lymph nodes in head, neck, arm pit and groin. Constant headache, what I can only describe as bone pain in shoulder joint and lower spine.(not muscle or injury pain).  Anyone have anything similar? February seems so far off to wait.

A 1.6 cm nodule is relatively small/medium.  If the thyroid function is normal then likely other symptoms are not related to this.  This is probably an incidental finding of multinodular thyroid that is likely benign but does need to be looked at and possible biopsy of that 1.6 cm nodule should be considered.  The weight loss, fatigue and swollen lymph nodes may need separate evaluation from the thyroid nodule checkup.
