    @thyroidnodule , sorry to hear you are having issues with your health and struggling with thyroid.
    I see you have tiny nodules but when were these identified, Did you have an ultrasound scan?

    It's like you may have hashimoto disease where you tend to go hypothyroid and when your thyroid is struggling, more nodules are developed.

    Just out of curiosity, do you have any breathing issues or any of these nodules are visible from outer skin?

    Good luck and I hope you are euthyroid and nodules are benign.
    Struggling to get my life back!

    i discovered my chestnut size nodule last year. finally my dr made me go for thyroid ultrasound, final needle biopsy thyroid scan for hot and cold nodules. my chestnut size nodule was cold the endo stated cold dosen't mean cancer. i had a fine needle biopsy of the chestnut nodule no evidence of cancer. i have tiny nodules in left and right size of thryoid. he said my thyroid levels are ok.i went to the endo he will see me in six months with follow up thyroid ultrasound. he didn't mention hashimotos. you can see my chestnut nodule when i swallow . it moves up and down. i don't know what is next for me anyone have these issues. thank you for replying

    Hi @thyroidnodule I can certainly feel your anxiety but there is not much we can do at this stage to be honest. Nodules development is mostly related to thryoid cancer as far as I know so if there is no evidence of it, you should be glad

    Like Endo said, you should make a visit after that period to make sure there is no other development and your thyroid levels are okay as well. If I was you, I would ask for another scan as well at that time to make sure everything is good.

    How do you feel overall? Do you have any symptoms related to tiredness, fatigue weight gain etc which are typical thyroid symptoms?

    Hi there I don't have experience with nodules so I can;t really help. I just wanted to say good luck with this and hopefully it can be sorted soon as possible.

    Take care
