Mass is general term that used to tell about foreign growth; nodules are presumed to be of ball like or ovoid like shape. If it's greatest dimension or diameter is more then 1 cm it is investigated more using by biopsy. The 3 cm solid nodule is considered large .

i also have another question my nodule or mass is considered to be "cold" from the nucular scan. The ultrasound report said there is a large heterogeneously echogenic mass which appears to be predominantly solid and which demostrates fairly substantial vascularity on the color flow doppler ultrasound.
Impression: Vascular heterogeneously echogenic predominantly solid appearing mass in the right lobe of the thyroid. What does all this mean? im so lost with this my my dr. doesen't explain thing good

Vascular heterogeneously echogenic predominantly solid appearing mass means that :
this nodule has blood vessels inside , that meanss it is composed of live tissue which can be benign [adenoma] or malignant [cancerous]. The biopsy of such nodule is necessary, as it according to ultrasound findings it is about 25% chance of being cancerous. The surgery will be needed it is
follicular noplasm;
papillary carcinoma or
hurtle cell neoplasm.
