Not 100%: If the nodule is still in your neck, there is no way to know that it is 100% benign. Even if you had a biopsy before and it came back benign, there is still a chance that the spot of cancer was missed during the first biopsy. This is why we don't "poo poo" it away after 1 biopsy but continue to follow the thyroid nodule to monitor for size changes. All said, the risk of cancer is very small. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In order: to determine whether the nodule is taller than wide, you need to specify the orientation of those measurements: Anterior-posterior(AP), transverese(T), and longitudinal. If the AP/T ratio is greater than 1, the nodule is taller than wide. An A/P >1 does not necessarily mean cancer, but along with other features, may indicate the need for FNA biopsy. ...Read more

Options: You could rebiopsy. Maybe this time, also send out one tube for gene expression (molecular cytopath) to aid in the diagnosis.

You could follow closely with ultrasound and rebiopsy if changes are seen with the nodule... ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
