In brief: Depends

What you can do depends upon why you have these nodules.
Reflux, yelling, etc all can aggravate nodules - make sure your reflux is treated and you are speaking in a conversational voice at the loudest. Talk to your physician about why you have them (or why at least he thinks you do) and stop doing that. Good luck.
