I am not an expert or medical professional at all.
How large was the finding?
Looking back, for me it's been 7 yrs and every year I have to have an ultrasound to watch my other side and now I'm actually on meds as if I had a total .. just the other day I asked myself, "why again didn't they just take the whole thing out". But I know the answer rationally. So I hear what you're saying.
My two cents is if the findings are large enough or in accordance with the AMA to have removal I'd go for it.
Get a 2nd or 3rd opinion. I had quite a few myself.
