Welcome to the forum, Karen3.

Thyroid nodules <1cm are rarely malignant. They are very slow growing and won't be able to be fine needle aspiration biopsied until they are >1cm if they show suspicious characteristics.

Thyroid nodules are very common and 95% are benign. It is rare for adults to die without having one or two nodules.
