Adenocarcinoma: A Fine needle aspiration its extremely necesasarty to discard tumor/nodule malignant cells; the fact that u have a nodule does not necesaarely means, you have Cancer, an if it is an adenocarcinoma is not a malignant kind of tumor. So Im sure nothing severe is going thru; just do fine needle apsiration and anatopathology evaluation of the material is needed to be sure everything its jus fine!!
