Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX

Most thyroid nodules are benign and her wife's doctor must have noticed an irregularity with the smaller nodule. Properly it is attached to a delicate lobe of the thyroid gland or it is likely another serious tumor order than just a nodule.
Her doctor's concern might just be due to location of nodule. The larger one might not be serious or located on a delicate part of the thyroid gland.
I do think you should panic. She might require just a surgical excision of the nodules.

Hope this helps and wish you the best.
