The thyroid is a gland located under the Adam's apple, which functions to regulate various body metabolisms. Meanwhile, a thyroid nodule means that there is a nodule or lump in the area of the thyroid gland.
Nodules can be fluid-filled or solid. Both consist of abnormal, excessive growth of cells. Solid nodules are more likely to have thyroid cancer than fluid-filled nodules. However, most of these nodules are benign.
You can discuss directly with the doctor who treats you to find out whether the lump you are experiencing is dangerous or not.
Of course, further investigation will be needed to determine this. Hormonal examination, ultrasound, biopsy, can help the doctor to find out what type of nodule you have. Your ultrasound results only show the size and type of solid nodule, a follow-up biopsy can help determine whether the nodule is dangerous or not.
That's the explanation, hope it helps
