Endos do not do biopsies - they treat the thyroid with meds.  Surgeons (ENTs) do the biopsies.

Let us know what the results are with the biopsy.

For the past 3 or so years my ENDO has order for me to have an ultra sound and biopsy ever 6 months.  My ENDO was the one that performed the ultra sound guilded biopsy.  I resently had a complete Thyroidectomy because my nodule was getting larger, although my biopies have always been benign.  My Thyroidectomy was performed by an ENT surgeon.
