Why wait six months. It will put your mind at ease. I used to believe that all doctors had the right answers, but i no longer feel that way

If the doc says anything about insurance, costs etc. Tell him it's your life not his.

Get a copy of the ultrasound or Ct scan and then go for a second opinion

if you do get the biopsy be sure you get the ultrasound guided biopsy. My first biopsy was not and it was very uncomfortable and he had to stick me several times and never got a good enough sample for readable results. I had my 3rd biopsy done ultrasound guided and finally got enough tissue, good tissue, to get a result. I have a 1cm nodule on my left side. My labs are also normal. I too was worried about cancer. I felt alot better after finally getting my results, which was multinodular goiter and thyroiditis. They now monitor my levels and recheck my thyoid every year or two.

Best of luck to you.
