Hi, I was diagnosed with severe autoimmune hypothyroidism last November. I had an ultrasound today on a nodule which has grown 2.8cm and was not detected in an ultrasound in mid-December. I have had it 'fine-needled' and told that it is solid and is not a cyst. I was also told that I have small cysts on my thyroid. I am having to wait 10 days for results, i was told it would be best to have it removed. I am 38 years old. i was wondering, now that a cyst has been ruled out if anyone else has been through a similar experience?
