Hi Shamrock,
I just went through something like this.I was called on a Wednesday and told I had an appointment on the following Monday with my surgical Oncologist because they saw a "spot" on my thyroid. Needless to say, I didn't sleep pretty much the rest of the week! Even when they tell you "it's probably nothing, don't worry" HA! If you thought it was nothing, you wouldn't be dragging my butt in there to look at "nothing"! As it turned out, someone read my last CT scan wrong. My original tumor is still in my neck and not worth going in after as it is too close to the coratid artery. What the spot on my thyroid was was the tumor viewed from the side and projected onto the thyroid by the person viewing, it was NOTHING! That was of no help from Wednesday to the following Monday. I feel for you, I know exactly what you are feeling and I bet they are right and not to worry!
