Follow up: You need to have a repeat ultrasound to see if the nodule has changed since the last biopsy. If it's the same or getting smaller, you don't need to have another biopsy. I recommend seeing the doctor who did the original biopsy. That person knows your history and will be able to follow this nodule for you. The choice to seek a second opinion is always yours but i'm not sure it's needed at this time.
