I do understand that you are a 42 year old female with history of depression and anxiety. Your concern seems to be related thyroid nodule and abnormal blood values.

If your thyroid nodule size is less than 1 cm nothing to be worried and we have to follow up the thyroid size. It is also preferable to get your thyroid blood tests as many a times hypothyroidism can present with depression. High calcium again requires evaluation with other further blood tests like parathormone and phosphorus.

considering your age, many a times perimenopausal symptoms can present with mood swings and fatigue.
