Hi,

If you are having large size nodules (>1cm) you should consult a doctor and get a needle test (FNAC) done from the thyroid nodule. This will tell you whether you can keep the nodules or do a surgery to remove. Your hashimotos hypothyroidism has to be treated with Thyroid hormone replacement, whether you do surgery or not.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
