Common problem: Thyroid nodules are common in the population, especially in women. Most nodules are benign and require no treatment. The issue is to establish that it is benign. If the nodule is over 1 cm in size, we usually do a fine needle biopsy to make sure it is benign. As long as your thyroid function is normal, there is no side effect to the nodule unless it becomes very large.
