Hi XXXXXXX,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
CMV is a virus called Cytomegalo Virus and is a disease of severely immunocompromised and organ transplant recepient patients and does not cause thyroid nodules per se.
So they are not related and if present in the same person then they are so by chance.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
