Hi there all. I've have been told I have 3 nodules on my thyroid, 2 on the right lobe both approx 1 cm, and one on my left lobe, approx 4 mm. I've had a FNA on the largest one which has given an equivocal result and was therefore inconclusive so my endocrinologist has recommended I have at least a partial thyroidectomy (right lobe), however my surgeon has given me the option of a full thyroidectomy. He has said that there is no right or wrong answer and that it is my choice. I also have tested positive for thyroid antibodies for the last 2 years on several tests and have a strong family history of thyroid issues. Has anyone had a partial thyroidectomy that has then had to go on to have the other half out at a later date? I'm just trying to work out the pros and cons of both. Thanks in advance x
