Skin cancer: Nodular cancers can be pigmented or non pigmented. If pigmented- will need urgent attention as your doctor will need to rule out melanoma as they can be aggressive. Non pigmented still need to be seen as melanomas can be non pigmented in about 25% cases. Basal cell cancer and sq cell CA usually will resent with non healing lesions and then can ulcerate.

Thyroid nodules: Thyroid nodules are common, and most are benign. Work up may involve a thyroid scan; if the nodule does not take up iodine, it is more suspicious.

Hashimotos thyroiditis can sometimes make a gland nodular, but hashi gives a different us appearance, and may have positive tpo antibodies. ...Read more
Several: The fluid, or initial bloody fluid, or pus settles to the bottom of the pleural space( between the lung and the chest wall) it clots or gets thick and sticks in the dependent area and the lung sticks around it.

Yes, very: 96% of nodules found in a study of screening ct scans were not lung cancer. While we don't know for sure what they were, its almost certain that many were granulomas, a type of scar often caused by "histo". In some areas of the country almost half the population has lung nodules detectable on a ct and histo gets blamed for many of them, with or without proof. It usually requires no treatment. ...Read more

It depends: Thyroid nodules are mostly ( 80-90%) benign . But it depends on their size and rate of change(growth in their size). A repeat Ultrasound study of your Thyroid should be done(I am sure your doctor must have advised you to do so)) in 6 to 12 months time to reassess for any growth in the nodules in your Thyroid. ...Read more
No: The majority of lumps in the thyroid when noted to be multiple on scan represent the condition "multinodular goiter" These are almost always benign. When a solitary lesion is present that is "cold" on isotope scan, this is suspicious for possible malignancy and should always be removed. Bx has a certain degree of error especially if a follicular lesion looking benign has invaded capsule. ...Read more
No Simple Answer: It is likely due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors, both of which are not well understood at this time. In most patients, we do not know why they developed thyroid cancer. In occasional cases, the cause can be traced back to something specific (i.e. Prior exposure to radiation therapy to the neck or to other sources of radiation). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

On the lung?: gosh could be quite a lot for this. If it is stable over years, cancer is MOSTLY ruled out (sometimes cancer can develop in a scar).

Infection, but...: They are probably related to infections. You report having been tested for fanconi's anemia. Do you have it?
