Welcome to HCM. I had gone through your question and understand your concerns.

The problems with your thyroid are

1. Multinodular goiter - You have a thyroid swelling with small nodules in it
2. The nodules look like benign (non cancerous) - the nodules are small (3. Needs follow up - usually we do further tests when the nodule size is more than 1 cm. Here we can wait for 6-12 months to see if he nodule size is increasing.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
