In brief: Thyroid

Without a history of extensive other metastases outside the neck, it is unlikely the liver spots are from thyroid cancer.

In brief: The prior Hx

Of mets increses the probablity that another metastatic event will occur. Once metastatic, cure is not likely.
These lesions are perhaps to small to biopsy. I would wait until they are large enough to biopsy since the next therapy might make them disappear but do not influence your survival.
