boarderline ultra sound?

A couple of months ago I had to have a chest CT done and  was told that this CT showed an incindential finding that my thyroid was enlarged. My PC sent me for bloodwork and a thyroid ultra sound. The nurse called me today and said I needed to come in to see the doctor so we can discuss my "boardline" ultra sound. What does that mean -boarderline? During the ultra sound I did learn that I had nodules but the tech told me that this is common and nothing looked "alarming" Ever since the phone call from the nurse I am getting nervous. Can this just be hypothyroid or does it sound like something more serious?

Your blood test should show hormonal level.
If there are many small sub centimeter nodules in the thyroid , such finding is less worrysome if two large nodules were found.
I am not sure what borderline means [can be regarding the overall size?]
