I would think the next step would be a CT scan of the neck. Findings indicate a chronic process. Concern would be for malignancy of the left lobe of the thyroid gland. A biopsy will most likely be recommended to obtain a tissue diagnosis. An experienced head and neck surgeon should be involved in your care.
