Just starting my journey - and looking for some help!

Thanks in advance for taking a quick 5 mins to help me find some well needed answers. I am a 36 year old male and my recent FNA results showed signs of Hurthle cells. The nodular is less than 1cm. I wanted to see if anyone else has:

1) a Hurthle cell nodular that was benign once removed?
2) a story of a nodular or tumor that was a similar size (1cm)?
3) experienced an ear ache/gland swelling post FNA?
4) experienced any muscle aches that were associated with metastasis?
5) is it better to have a cold, warm, or hot nodular?
6) experienced more frequent hair loss?
7) experienced any differences in breathing related to lungs vs. windpipe?

I have my first consultation with my surgeon tomorrow and any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, JJ

1) no
2) yes and no my largest was 7.1cm i had a few other spots 6mm and 8 mm

5) it depends... each type means diffrent things to the doctor and any can be bad or good in comparison
6) cant answer that one lost most my hair before
7) yes I had difficulty breathing the 7.1cm node was pussing aginst my windpipe and they had to do an awake intubation cause my wind pipe was radicaly shifted.
