Thyroid cyst: It sounds like you have a simple thyroid cyst and possiblt a couple of reactive nodes that may be within normal. Why did you have an ultrasound? 4mm cysts is not palpable. I would recommend regular 6-12 month follow up. it is low risk for neoplastic pathology based on your description.
