i went to the Dr today ...yes right day, time, and place.
i was diagnosed with thyroid nodules(non cancerous) 2 years ago. so i had to get an endocrinologist here in phoenix to watch them. like the Dr in Utah has been doing for 2 years. she has watched them grow and multiply. this new Dr has decided to do an ultrasound and compare it to the last one i had. which ends up having been a year ago. she wants to see how much they have grow and or multiplied.  then we will talk about just yanking out the thyroid, nodules and all . which is a scary thing.. but considering the option of watching these every 6 months for the rest of my life.. 

well we will see after my  ultrasound.. 

Thyroid nodules are solid or fluid-filled lumps that form within your thyroid, a small gland located at the base of your neck, just below your Adam's apple.
The great majority of thyroid nodules are noncancerous and don't cause symptoms. 
You often won't know you have a thyroid nodule until your doctor discovers it during a routine medical exam. Some thyroid nodules, however, may become large enough to press on your windpipe, making it uncomfortable or difficult to swallow.
