A year ago, I got a biopsy for two nodules in thyroid. The result for one was benign and the other inconclusive. This year I went back to a different doctor to redo my indeterminate biopsy. She advised me do for both again, because through ultrasound they look angry or vicious. In my right side, which was benign, is the largest at 2.6 mixed solid and cystic with vascularity and the other, that was indeterminate, is more of a solid or heterogeneous. This time my report came back as indeterminate for the benign one and the other as 40 % suspicious for cancer. This was done through afirma gene expression. I also have one more nodule on the lower portion that is too small to test. Doctor is pushing me for thyroidectomy. I am still young and active. I hate the thought of removing such a vital thing in my body and taking pills everyday just on chance. If I come to know it as cancer then I have no problem to take it out. Is there any more in depth test I can do before I change my whole life? What would you do? I am scared and I just feel stuck. Unfortunately, I do not have my reports. Any advice would be deeply appreciated. Thank you.
