Hello,
I can understand your concern. Most probably the nodules have developed from the trauma you sustained some time back. I would like to get the biopsy report so that it would be clearer to tell you.
Since the nodules are benign you need not worry about them. Its quite natural to have smaller nodules in thyroid which are benign in nature. You can just forget about it. Get back to us if the nodules increase in size or if you have any other symptoms.
Hope you are satisfied with our response. Thanks for choosing HCM
