Does your Thyroid Ultrasound look like these examples? These are benign thyroid thyroid nodules with negative thyroid biopsies and molecular markers and do not need surgery.
They should be treated with Thyroid radiofrequency ablation RFA. Insist that you get referred to an interventional thyroidologist who can arrange a short visit to Italy for Thyroid RFA after the evaluation is done in the USA. It is hard to believe that the richest country still does not have thyroid friendly RFA system to treat you here. FDA has been dragging their feet in approval which is now due in March 2018.

Solid nodules with cystic spaces are called spongiform and are benign.

Grades of the amount of cystic spaces from 1-3.
Spongiform nodule with mostly cystic spaces.
Benign colloid nodules are also treated best by thyroid
Solid benign thyroid nodules are also treated by thyroid RF
Benign thyroid nodule with halo and hyperechoic compared to the surrounding thyroid gland.
“happy face” complex cystic solid nodule

Get mad as hell and send a letter to the FDA demanding they approve thyroid friendly systems from Korea, so we can join the rest of the world in having a safe alternative to the present referral to surgery.
