Brief Answer:
Hello. Yes, it can be evaluated later

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I have gone through your query. So small thyroud nodules are frequently detected incidently and are of little significance unless more than a cm in size. I will advice a repeat evaluation after 6 months. As of now, no need to remove it. Till then, there is nothing to worry.
Thanks and regards
