I'm 56 years old and 20 years ago I had a subtotal thyroidectomy due to a cyst. Since then I have developed a mulit-nodular goitre on the other side with the largest nodule 6cm. My thyroid is supposed to be in normal limits although I do feel tired a lot of the time. I have had an inconclusive biopsy on the nodule (not enough cells for testing). I have arranged another biopsy but my consultant suggests that regardless of the biopsy results I should have the other half removed as it could become cancerous. I am worried about requiring medication for the rest of my life and wonder what people think I should do. There seems to be so many postings about problems.
