I have hashimoto's and have previously had fna on left lobe solid nodule. I now have a solid nodule on right lobe. Should I have nuclear uptake scan?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Possibly

A functioning nodule or "hot" nodule is almost always benign.
If your TSH is low then an uptake scan would be appropriate.
