The first nodule is nearly big enough for a biopsy, I would ask for one if your sister has been diagnosed.  You should talk to a member named Utahmomma...she and her three sisters have all been diagnosed with papillary cancer, she could tell you a lot...Utahmomma, are you out there?  She had emergency surgery recently on a totally unrelated thing, but I know she checks in periodically.  I also have papillary cancer, two of my brothers and my dad had no thyroid function after @ age 50, and I am 44.   I have informed my two sisters to get an ultrasound.  Start another thread or send a private message with her name in the headline.
