Hello,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

In view of the FNAB test, if the report shows it to be non malignant, then it is not worrisome. FNAB is one of the best tests for detection of malignant cells in thyroid nodule. You should get the ultrasound repeated as stated by your endocrinologist and also get thyroid function tests done. If the thyroid function tests are normal, then it can be a benign thyroid nodule.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
