Surgery

In brief: You have a choice

The results you are sharing are benign.
The cells were likely from a fna biopsy. The size of your thyroid nodule meets criteria for removal, greater than 2.5 cm. Okay to talk to your doc and your surgeon about risk/benefits of waiting a few months with repeat ultrasound versus surgery now to remove one side of your thyroid. Good luck.

In brief: Thyroid

Either is fine do a hemithyroidectomy if the other lobe is clean.
Saves you for long term thyroid replacement.
