User :   my husband had an ultrasound done on his thyroid and the results were he had to nodukes about 3 mm in size. His doctor said no need for concern right now and would check again in 3 mths. My husband is not satisfied with this and riddled with anxiety.His father passed away at a young age from brain cancer so this worsens his anxiety.
