In brief: Not necessarily

Most thyorid noduels are benign e.
g. Thyroid cyst, goitre. If one is concerned, ultrasound is necessary to distinguish a solid one from a cystic one. If necessary, a fine needle biopsy may be indicated depending on the suspicions. Change in size of nodule may not be a reflection it's cancerous.
