Unlikely: The symptoms of Hashimoto's thyroiditis are those of gradual failure of the thyroid gland and clinical hypothyroidism. I don't know what "inhomogenous" means. What did the history, physical exam of the thyroid, serum TSH, and serology reveal? A sub-cm nodule is only biopsied if there are concerning radiographic qualities. Was scintigraphy or ultrasound done?
