Low TSH: Complex cysts/nodules are common in the thyroid, but "low TSH" is usually needful of treatment. If you have had a thyroid scan to make certain that the "complex cysts" are not "cold nodules". it is important to see a specialist (endocrinologist) for treatment with additional thyroid hormone if necessary.

Not sure a low TSH tells you much whereas a high TSH is indicative of hypothyroidism and failure to produce adequate Thyroid hormone. Never felt a low TSH was diagnostically very useful if at all.
