Hi,
Thanks for writing in. There are 2 options in your case-1st is surgery and second is followup. If the latter option is taken surgery may still be required if follow up scan suggests significant increase in size of nodules or FNAC is suspicious. Unfortunately there are no medications or a natural way to cure the nodules. Only other possible option was radio frequency ablation but if multiple nodules are present its of not much use.
Hope this helps
