See endocrinologist: Thyroid nodules, especially in a young person, need to be evaluated carefully, with ultrasound and possible biopsy. Sometimes, autoimmune thyroid disease (eg hashimotos/graves) can give a nodular appearance, and if so you don't need surgery. Best to see your endocrinologist for evaluation. If surgery is needed, you need an experienced thyroid surgeon.
