Thyroid nodule: The report doesn't say dysplasia or met aplasia. There are only epithelial cells with some macrophages. It is benign unless some part of information is missing. You had thyroid scan what did it say hot or cold nodule. Was us also done?. Did it show cyst or solid! please stick with endocrinologist. Thanks.

Not cancer: Both nodules sound perfectly benign by their histologic description. Sonographic (ultrasound) follow-up is recommended in 12 months to ensure stability.

Non cancerous: Good news. These are benign nodules. You may have bled into the second nodule at some time.
