Hypochondria: You have a very small nodule unchanged for 8 years, perfectly normal blood pressure and otherwise no medical issues, but you've had MRI and MRA of brain. WHY? There is no reason to have any scheduled follow-up scan of your thyroid. If concerned, biopsy but no reason to keep having procedures. Do you suffer from anxiety, OCD or hypochondria?
