Thoughts on 1.4 cm isoechoic thyroid nodule with peripheral calcification and moderate blood flow. Also round lymph node on other side of neck?

Thyroid: Its highly unlikely to be cancer. The odds favor this being a thyroglossal duct cyst. Pts often present at you age. You don't say where exactly your mass is. TDC is usually near midline.
