The statistics about thyroid growths/nodules/tumors are pretty good. Most are "nothing" and even the cancerous lesions are highly treatable. I read something online about something like 50% of people dying of natural causes had some form of micro thyroid cancer. Makes you wonder if it's worth removing it if it's unlikely to ever cause harm? Living without a thyroid makes you dependent on medication for the rest of your life... but I'm getting ahead of myself.
