From what I can see there isn't anything outstanding/unusual/scary with this report.  Is there an "impression" or recommendation at the bottom of the report that indicates if the pathologist recommends further action?  TI-RAD 2 means you have a benign nodule. Nothing to worry about.  

What prompted this ultrasound?  Have you been diagnosed with a thyroid condition?  If so, which one?  Have you had recent blood tests taken?  If so, it would be helpful if you could post current results for TSH, Free T3, Free 4 and any antibody tests you've had.  Please make sure you include reference ranges, since they vary lab to lab and have to come from your own report(s).
