I agree with seeing an endocrinologist but do your research as they differ immensely. Find one that you can work with and feel comfortable with.
My experience is to advocate for yourself and get fine needle biopsies with ultrasound of all nodules. my first biopsy was a random and not with ultrasound or from both nodules. Years later I had to push to get other biopsies of all nodules.

Are you seeing an endocrinologist? Sounds like you may have Hashimoto Thyroiditis which is a form of hypothyroidism. You might google the two terms I gave you and check what has been written about them on this team in the past.

If you are not seeing an endocrinologist I would demand your primary doctor to give you the names of some in your area and a referral. Endocrinologist deal with diabetes and thyroid issues so you may have to do some checking to get someone who will really help.

I am new to this group. I have nodules on my thyroid that are rendering me hoarse. I am following the doctor's instructions, but I need to know more about what I'm up against.
