Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

sorry about your mother's thyroid cancer

the small thyroid nodule does not need to be biopsied and can be watched.

the lymph node of 1.85cm is normal sized and is not worrisome.

your findings do not point to thyroid cancer.
