Advise followup: Ultrasound in 6 months. The nodule (if it exists) is small and it is safe to do this. You will have to pick the doctor you feel most comfortable with for this followup exam.

User dependant: Ultrasound is a user dependent test and the images are created by the person scanning. There are many cases of your exact problem. I personally have been asked to biopsy suspected lesions that when i scan are just not there. It's probably nothing so a 6 month followup should suffice.
