In brief: Yes
While this is unlikely to be related to your meningioma, it should be further evaluated.
If this is in your thyroid it could well be an adenoma, but without a biopsy of some type you will not know!

In brief: Possibly
It is most unlikely it is a meningioma.
However, i assume you are female, and women with thyroid nodules should have additional evaluation (fine needle aspiration of the thyroid or neck nodule) since they do have a higher incidence of thyroid disease than men. No matter the gender, this needs to have additional evaluation.
