Needs to be biopsied: Although 90% 0f the solid nodules are non cancerous, you need to biopsy the solid nodule to rule out cancer of the thyroid.So consult your doctor or endocrinologist and discuss the options.

Biopsy: In the event of a solitary thyroid nodule that is larger than 0.5 to 1 cm, or in the case of multiple thyroid nodules in which there is a dominant nodule, an ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy is warranted. Multiple nodules is most commonly associated with benign goiter, the nodules you describe warrant a fine needle biopsy for specific diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
