Just because your blood tests are within the so-called "normal" ranges does not mean that is adequate for you. The ranges are far too broad and all patients are somewhat different in their needs for thyroid hormone.  If you will please post your actual results and reference ranges shown on the lab report members will be better able to comment further.

Nodules are really common, enough it's an annoyance for endocrinologists. FNA is standard of care for a nodule over 1cm and 90-95% are benign. I hate saying cancer, But in the event it is, based on everything I've been told and read, survival rate for common thyroid cancer, is nearly 100%. So no matter what you'll be fine.

So good to get the FNA done quickly for one reason, it's annoying to be nervous from not knowing. Also usually an FNA usually isn't very painful.  I had one, I was surprised how it didn't hurt.

good luck.
