Hello

FNAC findings may indicate doubtful follicular thyroid neoplasm.However,FNAC is not confirmatory.You may need further investigations.FNAC can't differentiate many factors.
Investigation may include thyroid scan,biopsy and thyroglobulin estimation(it is a tumour marker).
Biopsy is important and it is helpful in diagnosis.

Proper treatment depend upon clinical findings and investigations reports.
