Thyroid ultrasound shows new mural nodule, calcifications, masses, lesions, and lymphadenopathy. Possible cancer?

Possible cancer: With your description cancer is a possibility but by no means certain. Where is the lymphadenopathy? An imaging study with biopsy is what is needed here. Please have your doctor schedule this. Hope all goes well.
