abnormal cells found on thyroid gland

My daughter has recently received her tests back from needle biopsy that they took from a lump on her thyroid. They have told us that it has abnormal cells and they now want to remove the right half of her thyroid to determine if they are cancerous. They have told us that they are of a hard mass and not fluid. The mass is 4cm in diameter. Would like some idea if any one else has had similar findings. This is very premature at the moment as they are booking a ultrasound to see where it is attached to the thyroid gland or any other organs.

My opinion would be to definitely have it removed based on size, findings and being hard mass.  Mine were smaller aprox 1.9cm and was atypical on FNA but turned out benign .. however when in there they found two incidental findings of pap cancer elsewhere in that side of the gland on final biopsy.  4.0cm's with what you describe sounds like it needs to come out and take ea. step from there .. ?
