Diagnosed as thy3f thyroid. Advised for partial thyroidectomy. Have had nodule removed. What should I do?

Hi, I have a thyroid nodule that has been diagnosed as thy3f by a FNA. I have been advised to have a partial thyroidectomy . I previously had a nodule removed in 2007 which was benign. Do you think this one is likely to be benign as well as I don t really want to have surgery again and was thinking about not having the surgery this time. What do you think? Thanks Michelle

Dear Michelle

Thanks a lot for your question. What is thy3f stand for? It is good to know what thy3f refers before discussing about surgical option.
