I am not an expert here .. hope others will be able to help .. the news with mine was that it was hyopechoic (solid) and turned out to be totally benign upon surgery.
Next step will be a FNA (fine need biopsy) to see what the content of the cells captured reveal .. keep in mind with that procedure it is not 100% accurate and even sometimes is inconclusive but many here have had the test .. I think that will be next step.
Hang in there .. the waiting is sometimes the hardest part,
HOWDY Mine was 2.2cm. I just had a 90% thyroidectomy. Due to my unluckness, I have Papillary Carcinoma. Had I NOT BEEN so flat out agressive about ME wanting it out the dr would have just some a lil supressive therapy and I would be waiting while my cancer spread. Mines was Hyprechoic. Both solid and cystic. I am a very agressive gal if it is there an not suposed to be, take it out. I DID HAVE a Fine Needle Aspiration came back negative for cancer it had colloid cells. BUT I have an elevated Thyroglobulin 41.6. I am a reader and I have had ALLOT OF help from this board!!!!! This is ME!!!! Go with your heart on waht you decide. EVERY doc is different.
