In brief: Thyroid nodules

A very small percentage of thyroid nodules can be cancer.
That is why your doctor will examine them with ultrasound and perform needle aspiration biopsy on them. If the nodule is suspicious appearing, it may need to be surgically removed. However, most are harmless. You may need to see an endocrinologist.
