ANTSUN
I have a thyroid nodule that has grown in size...?
and now my dr. wants to do a biopsy just to be extra cautious. should I be worried? about 2 years ago it was 3mm and as of January it went up to 2cm. She tried to see if she could feel it but she couldn't. She also said there's a chance that it could have went down. After my baby (1 yr ago) my thyroid was slightly over active but now it is normal. The only thing I'm concerned about is this nodule.

When you know you have a thyroid nodule, your treatment options include: Observation. If your thyroid nodule is not cancerous, your doctor may choose to check it every 6 to 12 months for changes in size. Many noncancerous thyroid nodules stay the same size or shrink without treatment. Thyroid biopsy. Your doctor may drain a fluid-filled nodule with a needle. Some fluid-filled nodules will not come back after they are drained, but most do come back. Surgery (thyroidectomy). Not all thyroid nodules need surgery. You will need to have surgery to remove part or all of your thyroid gland if: Your nodule is cancerous or suspected to be cancerous. Your nodule is so big that it makes it hard for you to breathe or swallow. You have a fluid-filled nodule that returns after being drained one or two times. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) suppression therapy may be used to shrink a nodule if: Your thyroid nodule is not cancerous, but is large or growing, or if you have a goiter and multiple nodules. Your thyroid nodule is cancerous or suspected to be cancerous, and you are not healthy enough to have surgery. Radioactive iodine. Radioactive iodine may be used to destroy thyroid tissue if: Your nodule is noncancerous but is making too much thyroid hormone, causing hyperthyroidism. If you have hyperthyroidism because of your nodule and you are pregnant, it is not a good idea to have radioactive iodine treatment. Your doctor will recommend surgery instead of radioactive iodine. You have several nodules (multinodular goiter) and surgery is not a good idea because of other health problems you have. Radioactive iodine can shrink nodules that cause problems with breathing or swallowing, but your nodules may come back after treatment.

Please have it biopsied as I have a relative who also was found to have nodules on the thyroids and yes the biopsy was done and it turned out to be cancer.They had it all removed through surgery and many days in radiation .It has been afew years now. They still have regular blood tests and check-ups done to make sure it has not returned.The earlier the detection the better the curer so please follow through with any tests.
