Likely benign : Most thyroid nodules are benign. To put things in perspective up to 67% of the general population evaluated with ultrasound will have an incidental thyroid nodule. However, without knowing your history, risk factors (family history, history of radiation exposure), and specific imaging features of your thyroids nodules - it's very difficult to get into specifics. Consult with your radiology doctor!
